Love the size. Love how easy it is to clean and fill up.
This is the best way to water I have found. it never gets dirty inside, cleanup is a breeze. I wish I had found it sooner.
I received the waterer and was excited to put it to use. Alas I had to go back to this site and read the review with detailed instructions. I had success! As for the winter issue I have a separate heated waterer that I use. While reading the other review about being stumped on freezing I suggest a fish tank heater. Maybe that would work.
I bought this 4H waterer just because I hate flipping the smaller waterers and unscrewing the bottom off and on. With the hose nearby I simply lift the lid and fill it up. The only problem that I had was the water freezing in the winter. I suspended a birdbath heater with a thermocube in the bucket near the bottom. The water in the bucket did not freeze; however, the portal and trough still froze. I asked the people that I bought it from if I could use a metal stand heater to place the bucket on but they thought that it would melt the bucket. Apparently, it is only used for metal waterers. So, I tried to wrap indoor/outdoor track lighting around the bottom. It did help somewhat ( unless it dropped below freezing for more than 2 days.) I kept it in an outside covered feeding station as the coupe was too small to fit. I love the waterer in the summertime, so easy to clean and fill with the hose and it holds 5 gallons. It saved a lot of time. Does anyone have a solution for the winter?
