Broken bobber
The bobber broke shorty after purchasing when installed. The rest of the item is great.

So Far, So Good
Some reviews mentioned that the Fortiflex Over-the-Fence Waterer leaks after installation. As yet, there are no leaks - - hooray! It would be a useful feature if the bucket had a one-step-connect to each side for accommodating the fact that not all installations will be easy from the one side of the bucket. If the bucket was made with a hole to each side, the hole to be used could be a punch-out hole. The unused hole would remain covered.

This is one of the poorest products I have ever purchases
I am still in the process of having all the missing, broken parts sent to me. Everything leaks, very poor quality hardware, no instructions, etc. I bought 7 of these and after 2 weeks I have one that only drips a little so I am using it. Once this is closed I will up date my review. Right now I say run, run far away!!!But the bucket is pretty.

Reviewed this product 12/13
My 1st review in 12/2013 the buckets were a couple month old and working out fine. Since that time I had 2 of the buckets break along the top rim. Both failed within the same week this past June. I am not sure if I will replace using the same product.

Very Good Waterer
I had been thinking of buying this type of waterer for some time.Finally broke down and bought 4 of them a couple months ago.All are still working well and have cut down on my cleaning time greatly. I would have liked 3 features; left or right water inlet, flush bottom drain, 90' angle water inlet.

This watered is great, it has a drain hole to aid in cleaning
The only issue I found is that the plastic nut that holds the drain in is very weak.
July 10, 2013
Wish it worked better
Float worked for about 4 days, then even with multiple adjustment attempts, just allowed water to dribble over the top of bucket. Very dissapointed.

WONDERFUL!!!!!
I searched the net over and over and couldn't find a better deal. This has the good rubber/plastic material that resists craking. It came with an extra large hole in the bottom with a really nice plug. Usually you get a flimsy rubber plug on these and this one had a really nice plastic one instead. It was very easy to put together even with only one good hand to use. I will defineately be buying more from horse.com. Thanks for having such a nice, user friendly product.

The ones I have currently are metal (which doesn't really hold up), and too small for two old boys that drink a lot.

easy to mountand high volume
NICOLE D on Aug 26, 2014
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.
KIM M on Jun 18, 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!
Jon H on May 22, 2014
Good quality very affordable water, horses love it too.
PEGGY K on Apr 30, 2014
I like this waterer the best it never overflows and the floater works perfect , the others I try the floater moves and it needs constant adjustment ,a waste of water

Can you connect this waterer to a yard hydrant or will it cause a backflow issue?
emwinter on May 20, 2015
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?
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!
Is this a bottom fill waterer or does it fill from the top?
A shopper on Dec 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It fills from the top. We've been very happy with our purchase!
How many gallons of water?
H L on Aug 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It holds a full 5 gallons. It's a very sturdy and functional waterer that I will buy again!
I What does the inside of the fortifeflex water feeder valve look like? I feel like I am missing a part....
Eva K on May 2, 2016
