Bucket Nipple Waterer

It's common for a bead of water to hang off the nipple and occasionally drip. This is common with all types of poultry nipples. When testing this waterer, the drips were not bothersome to neither our birds nor us.
Clean the drinker once a month with chlorine. This is important to keep the nipples clean. Make sure there is no chlorine left in the nipples after cleaning.

In use now for a couple weeks. So far so good. Item seems to be very well made. Nice to see some quality for a change.

Love, love, love these waterers! I cant speak to durability. But they seem like very strong containers compared to others I have seen.
I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on other styles before getting these. Always having clean water without debris in it is great for the birds and ME, so I don't have to constantly empty the trays out.

So far so good! The chickens took to it right away. I'm a first time chicken owner, so I'm trying to make the best educated decision for chicken products. etc. I REALLY researched for months for a good water and couldn't decide the best one to use. Thankfully I came across a YouTube review were a gentleman had ten different waterers and gave a review on each one. This was the best and he explained why: water doesn't get dirty, it doesn't leak and when you set the bucket down you don't muck up the nipples on the bottom. I found he was right. I'd highly recommend this product!

Great product, keeps clean water available 24/7 for my RIR'ds. I just add ice every day during these warm months.

So far, this is a very effective waterer. It does not drip. The nipples do not reach the ground if you put it on a firm surface to fill up the water. This prevents damage to the nipples and makes this item much better than my previous waterer.
The opaque plastic keeps algae from growing inside the waterer. The cover is easy to remove. Filling this is super easy.
It was very well-packaged to prevent damage and it was free shipping.
Love it and highly recommend it!!
