For shipping purposes, the pipe assembly comes in two pieces. This video will show you how to glue them together so the drinkers aren't crooked!
1. Clean Water
The importance of providing a steady supply of fresh water to our chicken friends can not be over emphasized. A freshly cleaned and filled open pan works great until the first bird takes a drink. Any open water dish will quickly become contaminated with dirt, snot, poo and the likes, making it a vector for disease. A properly designed “reservoir, pipe, drinker” type of waterer is considered to be a “closed system” that minimizes or eliminates dangerous contaminates.
The use of automatic poultry drinker nipples is probably the best choice to reduce the spread of disease through drinking water.

The benefit of using this approach to fill an automatic poultry water system is that it leaves your garden hose free for other stuff. For more info please visit us at www.autowaterkit.com
