"Great Chicken Water"
I have used these for years in chicken runs to keep them plenty of fresh water. I turn off the water when the temps get below 32 but work great most of the year in the south.
"Galvanized Water dish"
Great Dog waterer. We have Irish Wolfhounds and they love these. Easy to keep clean and spare parts are available...
"Received as ordered "
The replacement packet order was received just as it was listed in the catalog also was delivered promptly
I have had 3 of these waterers for over 5 years for my horses and I have never had a problem with any of them. I have well water at 50 psi. I have them mounted on post with plastic pipe and hose connections. Couldn't ask for a better product.
"Sturdy and easy to clean"
We owned/operated a 16 run I/O boarding facility for almost 15 yrs in GA and used this product on all runs. Shape of bowl makes them fast & easy to flush out. Our biggest problem, well really only problem was that some of the dogs wanted to dig in them and would alter the float handle. We plumbed them with pvc with a shut off valve for ea side of kennel building so 8 waterers were on same valve.. Highly recommend these.
"parts not durable"
"The waterer works fine, though it would be better with a bottom plug as I've seen on other brands to make cleaning easier. My main complaint is that I've only had the waterer one year, and in a mostly protected place, and still the cheap, plastic connection piece that connects the waterer to the hose is brittle and broken. The store where I bought it does not have replacements and said that people come in looking for them all the time. I can't find replacement parts online either. I have contacted the manufacturer in hopes they will help me. Otherwise, wasted money. ""Made in the USA"" should mean better quality than this."
Great, heavy duty product that's had over 5 years of constant use with minimal problems. All the problems I've had were caused by weather extremes. New valve is relatively inexpensive and one doesn't have to replace the whole assembly.
"llamas and alpacas"
Had these for years for llamas and alpacas. They work very well for these animals even for the babies. Ours don't leak (water pressure about 40 psi).
"Ran up my water bill"
I have replaced the washer so many times and they are impossible to just buy alone to have on hand locally, they make you buy the entire float. The washer never lasts long at all. Switching to another brand!
"Get water pressure regulator"
These kept leaking, until I placed my travel trailer's water pressure regulator on the faucet supplying the waterer. The leaking stopped. You can get a water pressure regulator at a trailer supply store such as CampingWorld.com
"might fix your problem"
Iam a plumber that installes and repairs auto. waters. check your water pressure. These devices will leak if the inlet pressure is uncontroled.
"Lots of Trouble"
I have had several of these waterers. The first ones were galvanized but eventually they developed holes and leaked from the bowl. We are constantly replacing the rubber grommets and eventually we replaced all the inner workings to get it to stop leaking. It would work for a little while and then start right back up leaking. Eventually we replaced them with the coated waterers hoping for better luck but we are still having problems. We can't figure out why they keep leaking
I have a boarding stable with 30 of the galvanized waterers in use. They're great! Seldom have any problems which is great because water problems are what I don't have time for everyday. We're on a well and occasionally the inlet will get a little something stuck in it. Usually picking up a little piece of hay and clearing the hole is all it takes. These have been up and running 1 1/2 years. I'd highly recommend them.
"Good Waterer, Poor Assumptions"
I bought this waterer locally and the instructions were not included. It appeared to attach directly to a hose, but this is not the case. You will need an adapter for that to happen. I've had no problems with it since I got it set up correctly... in fact, this is now the preferred waterer of ALL the animals on the farm. We will be adding a dozen more over the next few years.
Works great, as long as you follow instructions. Water pressure 10-70 PSI. If your water is city supplied need pressure reducer or will have problems with the rubber stoppers failing. If on a well not usually a problem as wells are not over 70 PSI.
