    workd great

    Review by on Jul 11, 2016

    We have 2 of these and have had little problems. Just wish you could get the drop cup for under the nipplers due to a wet floor. Other than that they work great

    I wish I had gotten this item when my chickens were chicks. They don't seem to want to use it. I've tried all sorts of ways to get them used to it, but to no avail. I just got some baby guineas, so will try it on them to see if I can get them to grow up with it.

    Good but LEAKS

    Review by on Apr 21, 2016

    The set up is nice but the bleed valve leaks no matter what we do to it. QC others have complained about this so what is the FIX?????

  • 3 Stars

    Meh, it's alright

    Review by on Apr 7, 2016

    The system in general works fantastically; however, the air bleed valve leaks horribly. I had to put epoxy all around the air valve to keep it from leaking. Still not sure this is a 100% fix, but hopefully it will slow the leak enough to make the system viable still.

    Perfect poultry watering system.

    Review by on Jun 25, 2015

    Extremely easy to set up. Took only minutes. Very sanitary watering system for poultry. My 15 chickens took to it immediately with no training. I used to use the fountain and base watering system that would end up with chicken feces in it. Yuck. No worries at all with this type of watering system. I would recommend it 100%. Thank you for such a great product.

    Much safer and cleaner

    Review by on Jul 3, 2014

    The chicks love getting their water this way and it is much cleaner than any ground-based waterer. The connection to a 5 gal plastic pail is simple and the set up of the waterer in the run is easy to do. It was so good, I got another set up for the other end of our yard.

    Fabulous time saver!!!

    Review by on Jun 26, 2014

    I got this set up for my hens and for my husband's pheasants. We both love it! It makes it so easy to water our birds! It is easy to take apart the tubing needed when I am changing water! It is also easy to check or add water from outside the pen since the bucket is outside the pen and the tubing runs into the pen. I recommend these to all of my chicken-raising friends!

    not female friendly and needs tweaking

    Review by on Jun 9, 2014

    Oh what a great idea, if only it didn't present problems! First the bucket adapter leaks. Still trying to solve that. Next the bleed valve is difficult to turn. Even the husband says so. Most annoying is the tubing can't be disconnected from the bucket once you put it on. If I want to change out the water to medicated or something, I have to carry the whole assembly outside to empty it. I thought I could just pull the tubing from the bucket adapter and drain the lines and refill. That's not the case. Even my husband can't get the tubing off. This is looking like a big pain. Maybe he can figure something out to make it more user friendly.

    Easy to set up, chicks took to it immediately.

    Review by on Jun 6, 2014

    The waterer and the adapter to connect the line to a water bucket were easy to put together in a few minutes. It would be more convenient to package them together as an integrated product. I was surprised by how quickly the chicks took to getting their water from the nipples. I like not having to keep a ground-based waterer clean all the time.

    Great product.

    Review by on Apr 27, 2014

    This product works great. Really easy to set up. Had my month old chicks using it in 10 minutes. I ended up using a 5 gal bucket with the adapter and it was super easy to get set up also. All in all a great product. Also ordered on a Wednesday and had my package on Saturday, without paying an arm and a leg for shipping.

    a little messy

    Review by on Sep 19, 2013

    Installed the 4 nipple system inside the run for my 4 pullets. Thought they were not using it because I hung it too high, so I lowered it a bit, and left for work the next morning with no sign of them using it. Thought I would come home to dead chickens!! But when I got home they all showed me right away that they knew how to use it. I was hoping however that there would be no water in the run from it, but it is quite messy when they peck at it. It also seems like they are twisting their necks in a weird way to access the nipples. Maybe I should try it higher again? Is it ok to use ACV with this system or will it harm the metal?

    Handy Waterer

    Review by on Aug 27, 2013

    Bought a couple of the 4 nipple waterers and they are ready to use right out of the box. I priced the parts at the local hardware store and I can't buy the pieces and build myself cheaper. Great product!

    I love it!

    Review by on Aug 21, 2013

    After seeing this product I couldn't wait to buy it. I was using the large plastic waterer but the mosquitoes kept getting in it...yuck!! This product was so easy to set up and the girls (6) all love it!! I showed 1 how to use to and the others had to try. With the bucket on the outside of the run filling it is a breeze. Thanks so much for making such a great product. Oh, my comet laid her first egg under it.

    Review by on Aug 7, 2013

    I set up the poultry hanger for my flock of 21 hens. I had a 5 gallon igloo water cooler on wheels, so I used that for the bucket. The igloo was thick- almost an inch thick when I drilled the 1/2 inch drill through. I bought the 1/4 inch adapter same time as the poultry hanger, but had to go to the hardware store to get an extension for the 1/4 adapter because the igloo wall was so thick.

    The gentleman at the hardware store helped me and go the right copper adapter, and a silver metal one and more washers. I brought in the poultry hanger with me so he could see exactly what I needed.

    It's working ok. I'm wondering at what point will the nipples freeze as autumn comes. I like the versatility of being able to set it up in the henhouse in the winter where it should be warmer. Right now it's hanging on the fence in their courtyard. I'm glad I bought it although in the hot summer afternoons they still like the pail of cold water. Early mornings and before bed in the evenings is when they use the hanging waterer.

    Hoping the bleed valve stops leaking

    Review by on Jul 12, 2013

    Bought a transparent bucket as suggested by another reviewer. We had a bit of trouble finding a spigot for the bucket, luckily we stumbled on a spigot used by home wine makers. Unfortunately, when we filled the system with water, the bleed valve has an ever so slow leak. Hung the waterer outside the coop until we can address the leak.

    Chicks immediately find nipples and have no problem drinking. Saves tons of time not having to clean out water bowls/troughs and my birds always have fresh clean water. I have used the Tube Waterer for game birds, ducks and chickens. Great product!

    Chickens like it

    Review by on Jun 13, 2013

    The chickens were using it minutes after it was installed. The only downside is finding the 1/4" nipple bulkhead fitting to connect it to the bucket. Wish it came with it. Also why the 90 bend to the valve? I'm thinking about cutting it off and adding an inline ball valve to make cleaning easier.

    Review by on May 3, 2013

    Well-engineered product. I appreciate the thought put in on this product especially the bleed valve used to get the air out of the line. Use a semi-transparent bucket and you can see when you need to add water.
