    Buy it N.O.W!!!!!

    Review by on Sep 12, 2016

    This is our second Plasson waterer. These are time-saving and low maintenance-- two things critical around our little farmette. We use one for the laying hens, the other for meat birds in a chicken tractor twice a year. Well worth the money. Start small when drilling the hole in the 5-gallon bucket and really force the supply line into it. I cut a small angle on the end of my tube to get it started through the hole. No leaks at all.

    All agree

    Review by on Aug 21, 2016

    Just read the other reviews here like I did and you'll be a happy owner of a new plasson bell waterer. Wish I'd started with one of these years ago. Beats all other systems. I'll never go back. I've used double wall metal, top fill plastic, drip, cups, open troughs.

    Awesome product

    Review by on Aug 5, 2016

    Should have bought these years ago. Never been so excited about a chicken waterer ever. These things make my job so much easier since I don't have to lift a five gallon waterer every day. Works like a charm.

    good product

    Review by on Jul 18, 2016

    We now use 15 or more of these "drinkers" for our pastured broilers, ducks and turkeys. Very reliable and easy to use.

    Working Great!

    Review by on Jul 17, 2016

    I've used these drinkers for a few days in my brooder that has 600 chicks in it. So far there has been zero issues. No overfills. Easy to clean, I drain them in to a five gallon bucket. Sometimes it takes a couple dumps to get all of the debris out. I hope they work as well in a pasture setting when the chicks go out to tractors next week.

    excellent product

    Review by on Jul 15, 2016

    First saw one of these in person at my brother-in-laws place. It went together well and worked exactly as advertised so I had to get one for my own flock. I only wish the 1/4" union that goes in the five gallon jug was included.

    Excellent - easy

    Review by on Jul 3, 2016

    Paid a little extra for the Plasson product and heartily pleased. Easy to set up and works perfectly. Almost didn't buy because the last time we used bell waterers we had a horrible experience.

    Love This Thing!

    Review by on Mar 8, 2016

    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!

    Review by on Oct 3, 2015

    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.

    Great Product- Options and Instructions Lacking....

    Review by on Jun 22, 2015

    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.

    WORTH every penny!

    Review by on Jun 3, 2015

    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!

    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.

    Great Waterer

    Review by on Jul 31, 2014

    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.

    Review by on Jul 23, 2014

    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.

    Review by on Jul 14, 2014

    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

    Review by on Jun 8, 2014

    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

    Review by on Jun 6, 2014

    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!!!

    Review by on Jun 6, 2014

    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!!!

    Review by on May 1, 2014

    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.

    Best waterer...period!

    Review by on Mar 23, 2014

    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.

    Good product

    Review by on Apr 14, 2013

    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!

    excellent product

    Review by on Apr 3, 2013

    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.

    Trouble free

    Review by on Apr 18, 2012

    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.
