How to Use
Hang the waterer at your preferred height in the coop or poultry pen. Attach the 3/8" tubing to the top inlet, the other end attaches to an elevated waterer source, we use a 4 or 5 gallon bucket with a 3/8" outlet that's threaded into a hole in the bucket. Use a short hose to prevent too many twists in the water's flow.
Loosen the threaded washer at the top of the water to allow the height control piece to be adjusted. Tighten washer to lock in desired water height.
Use correctly sized hoses for best performance. Too small of hoses may be difficult to remove from waterer, causing stress on plastic inlets.

So far works great and is a great price compared to similar products. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is the height. The whole unit is close to 2 feet high; this means it hangs dangerously low in a two-foot-high pasture shelter. I don’t see any reason for the bell portion to be more than a few inches high. The extra height doesn’t seem to add anything. I would suggest offering another shorter version for low-profile pasture shelters. I am working on after-market modifications for the ones I have to make them shorter.

Very nice! Improved design compared the the old bell type with the balance weight that had to be filled with water. Easy to adjust level of water and height.

I was looking at the plasson drinkers when I found this. Costs less. Easy to adjust. I currently have it in my ducks mobile pen. Soon will be getting more for my chicken tractors.
