Love This Thing!
We use these from brooder to pasture and they've work great for over 5 years. An occasional cleaning of the washer is all that's needed for maintenance. Beautifully simple and solid design. We use these for broilers and on our laying tractors. These hold up great in freezing weather, they just thaw out and keep on running. Also hold up well in sunlight, they'll fade, but 5yrs on mine and they aren't brittle and cracking yet.
The Best option Yet!
We are just starting with our poultry business and we have used a few different ways to supply our chickens with water. This one is by far the easiest and best option we have used, it is too bad we didn't find this sooner to have not wasted so much time, money, and energy on the other ones we have had.
What a great product! A huge time saver and it stays clean. I highly recommend.
Great Product- Options and Instructions Lacking....
I agree with the bulk of the other reviews that this is a very good solution to providing a consistent supply of fresh water to broilers. We have bought 5 units and by looking at You Tube videos and reading reviews we figured out how to best set them up. Decent instructions would have saved a lot of time. Small things like the right size drill bit or how to adjust the unit to keep the flow right would have been a nice touch. I will buy more as we have over 600 broilers. Andy at Purely By Chance Farm.
well made, and works great.
WORTH every penny!
We have about 40 broilers for the first time this year in a movable pen. We were using a 5 gallon vacuum-type, non-hanging waterer. Trying to level that thing out after each move was a total pain. This waterer solves every problem. FANTASTIC purchase; will be purchasing an adult drinker next for my laying hens. Worth every penny!
This waterer is exactly what is advertized and works great! i plan on using them for all my broiler tractors!
I also use these on pastured broilers. Very simple to use & setup. Bought one last year & was so impressed i bought two more this year.
Two Thumbs UP!!
These things are GREAT!!! they perform very well and keep the manure out of the water. I will buy more if my pastured poultry business grows.
This is an awesome waterer! Very happy with this purchase.
These water systems are great for small broiler batches. I use 2 waterers for 100 birds and that is plenty.
Great product and easy to use and setup.
Snaps together easily and works perfectly. I just wish shipping wasn't so much on this item, but it is big and bulky. Hard to fold a molded bell.
Love it will try chain. Needed a little better instructions with it but I think it it ok. Maybe not exactly how they mean but some written words would help. Chicks love if and less work for me.
what a work/hassel saver!!
These are a huge help! Chickens learned immediately and it saves us a boatload of time and work! Highly recommend!
I use these in pastured broiler pens and a movable eggmobile for laying hens. It is mostly trouble-free. Occasionally you will have to blow out the line if it gets clogged, but that is easily done by detaching the line from the bell waterer and blowing back towards your bucket, or other water source (or use an air compressor). Fill the ballast with sand instead of water and antifreeze. It is cheaper and you don't have to worry about antifreeze around your animals. Overall, a simple and effective system for watering poultry. I own 4 now and will continue to buy them as I need them.
this was my second one for the other side of my chicken coop. they all love it and don't have to go without water ever again. I set them up with a 35 gallon tank and now only have to add water once a week. I did hang mine with chain. now the only thing I need is a 12 volt heater to keep it from freezing in the winter months.
this is without a doubt the best most trouble free drinker I have ever owned. my chickens give it a two thumbs up.
The drinker is AWESOME!! I did what others said and got rid of the sting and used a chain right off the bat. I used a 15 gal tank and I now my birds never run out of clean water.
Great on pasture and brooder
I have reviewed this product in May on this site. Bought another 8 since. I use a gravity feed with 5 gal bucket on my pasture pens. I actually add two waterers to each pen because of the TX heat and also to have a backup when the chickens drink out the first 5 gal bucket. I agree with Dennis and use wire to mount instead of string. Cut included hose at an angle, drill hole in 5 gal bucket and insert to set up. Disassemble valve every 8-12 weeks and soak in bleach water to clean.
What a relief
We are now saving lots of time moving chicken tractors. No more worrying about picking up heavy waterers or cleaning out dirt. Happily recommend these to fellow poultry enthusiasts.
The best upgrade I have made for the chickens yet!!!
This broiler watering font works terrific!
The only improvement would be to ship with chain versus cord
I had to purchase a water regulator to reduce water pressure down to 3 to 6 pounds from the water hydrant
The broilers have grown more rapidly than ever with credit to this new water font!
Could not be more happy thank you!!!
Couldn't be more pleased!
This works great and looks great! I couldn't be more pleased. Waters my 75 broilers perfectly! Quick delivery at a similar price to competitors.
Fast shipping, easy assembly, easy installation. Adequate instructions. Includes the black supply hose. I use it with an outdoor mobile broiler coop. I simply drilled a hole near the bottom of a 5 gallon plastic bucket (water reservoir) slightly smaller than the supply hose. stuff the hose in the bucket hole and it works like a charm.
Multiple reasons this is the best waterer to get. For pastured chickens keeps waterer off ground and cleaner. Saves time moving pen and not having to reach in a take out waterer. Chickens spill way less water and you have to fill the water bucket less often. Easy to set up, easy to clean. Clean with a toilet brush and rinse.
All I can say is awesome!
Worth every penny. Easy to put together. Makes watering the chickens extremely easy.
All good, love these waterers
I have now used these waters for 3 years and would not even think to get a different kind. I have never had a problem with one of the waterers themselves, but sometimes there gets to be buildup in the line or my water buckets leak. But, the waterer performs as promised each time. Well worth the money!
Works better than the other brand of hanging waterer we tried before. Easy to set up and install. Good product. Highly recommend!
We have made the run around on automatic chicken drinkers. The Plasson Broiler Drinker is the best! Much better design than Kuhl bell waterers. Trouble free and easy to assemble.
Make sure you purchase the Saddle Connector for PVC installations. It does not come with the kit. Also, switch the hanging string for chain with a latch that you can move up and down as the birds age varies.
great product-- needs instructions!
product works great! definitely needs instructions with it- I would not have been able to assemble it myself-- thankfully, my husband figured it out!
This drinker has made our first attempt at raising broilers so much easier! Easy to assemble...easy to maintain. I would recommend!
Good trouble free drinker. The water flowing down the bell encourages birds to drink. Gravity flow is nice for all sorts of uses away from city water pressure. Suggestions:
Switch out water for sand as ballast. Switch the cord/string for hanging to something better suited like chain or higher quality braided rope as the one included frays going through the adjuster included with the drinker.
Good once I figured out how it works. Manufacturer needs to include instructions.
