Product Reviews by Customers

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I love this product. I have two installed one in each pasture with a garden hose. There are no problems whatsoever. Cleaning them is a breeze...just unscrew the plug, drain and wipe out. Saves on water and scrubbing out a huge stock tank.(been there done that) Always provides clean drinking water for our boys.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wonderful! I have seven of these and LOVE them! They are tied into my irrigation system, with s/s hoese for washers, and run for three seasons. Never any problems with them running. In fact I'm now looking for 2 of the shorter ones for my low slung dogs. June 15, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 Great Product Although we have to take the float cover off (4 screws -- very easy to remove) and adjust the float. This was because the screws that hold the float had come loose during shipping. Since then the product works great. We put an adapter on ours in order to be able to hook it up to a garden hose. Very easy to do. We like the product and are ordering another. May 8, 2009

NICOLE D on Aug 26, 2014
Great product- - However, the drain plug at the base of waterer leaks. We found that the company needs to send a larger O ring for inside the bottom of the drain plug, then it works fine!

I have used these waterers for serveral years. The only reason I am having to replace them is because we have hard water and the connections get corroded and start leaking but that has nothing to do with the waterer it self. They are a little difficult to clean because they are so deep but not too bad.

Can you connect this waterer to a yard hydrant or will it cause a backflow issue?
emwinter on May 20, 2015
Best Answer: Works fine with spigot. We have 3 hooked onto 2 spigots, using a "Y" to split the flow between 2 waterers. No backflow issues yet. But don't turn handle up any higher than necessary to keep waters filled. If you do,connect- ors can leak,no matter where they are along the line.

how big is it?
A shopper on Jan 3, 2015
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?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2014
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?
Kathy Z on Feb 14, 2014
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!
