Can you connect this waterer to a yard hydrant or will it cause a backflow issue?
Best Answer: In reading the answers, a lot of people do not know the difference between the terms water tap and hydrant. A tap has the twist knob and a hydrant has the lever that you raise to release the water. The hydrants will suck water back out of the line once turned off, which may be why emwinter asked this question. My waterer is connected to a hydrant and there is no backflow problem. Even if I turn off the water source, the waterer stays full, probably because the float closes the water intake hole when the waterer reaches the top.
how big is it?
Best Answer: It is very deep. I don't know what the measurements are but I liked that compared to the other ones I have purchased because the water doesn't come up to the top so no overflow. I have had no problems with mine. I purchased 5 of them and they are used in different parts of pastures and corrals. I even have one I with my cows.
Does the waterer come with the hose?
Best Answer: No it didn't. My barn manager supplies the hoses for us.
One extra I bought at the hardware store was a valve that goes between a hose and faucet. I put it between the waterer and the hose so I can turn off the water for cleaning easily.
How does this water bucket attach to the fence?
Best Answer: It's really easy. It has a metal L bracket on each side of the bucket back. They don't show in the picture on this site. Each bracket has a keyhole slot or two. You can have them facing up to mount on a wall in a stall like I did, or down to hang over a fence. They are adjustable in and out so if your fence rail is wider than normal you can adjust them. If you look closely at the picture on this site you call see three screws on the top sides at the back. These not only hold down the cover over the fill valve, but double as the back and forth adjustment of the L brackets. It's really a nice bucket. Like I said I use it as an automatic waterer in a stall. I have a 8 year old Thoroughbred mare and haven't had any problems with it. Just make sure you remove the cover over the fill valve now and then and scrub with a brush as crud can build up behind the cover and around the fill valve.
Buy it! You won't regret it!
