Tri-Pod Waterer, 8 gal
- Capacity: 8 gallon
- Suited for: adults
- Height: 22"
- Number of birds: 100
- Waterfowl: yes
- Base sits 5.5" above the ground
Note: The exact number of birds to water is difficult to determine as there are many factors that influence intake; salt and protein levels in the diet, humidity, temperature, productivity (growth or egg production) and the birds ability to process feed and water.
How to Use
- Fill from top with a hose.
- Make sure valve is closed when filling.
- Once full, screw the cap back on and open the valve to enable the water to flow. Water will stop on its own due to vacuum seal.
- Water fill level is high so be sure to set it on flat ground to avoid spillage.

Great idea, but like several other have said, the valve leaks when filling and it's impossible to clean the inside of the tank well. I love Premier, they have wonderful customer service and I have been very satisfied with their products overall--- but this product is a miss. We switched to the 8-gallon galvanized waterers, and overall they are much easier to clean, fill, and you can put them on heated bases in the winter to prevent freezing.

Great waterer. I bought 2 of these in April 2012 and 2 in August 2012 since I doubled the amount of chickens I had. They work great. You need to be sure you place them on level ground. I need to water less frequently since they hold 8 gallons. Filling from the top is so easy and cleaner then anything I have tried.Have been using these for 5 months and am very satisfied. Would highly recommend.

I bought this waterer thinking it was the greatest one I had ever seen. However, I have now been using it a few months, hoping it will get easier to use, but it's just so much more work to fill than other ones. The valve at the bottom does not close so the second you unscrew the top lid and start filling, water pours into the bowl and overflows..all over the floor! I have to actually remove the bottom valve and have one of my children plug the holes while I fill it! What a pain! Also, the top opening is way too small..as others have stated, you can't get your hand inside to even clean it. I absolutely love all of the products I have purchased from Premier, however I am left utterly disappointed in this one. I paid dearly to have it shipped to Canada and feel like I just threw a LOT of my money away. Premier...please redesign this item.

Really like. Very sturdy and the birds quickly began to use it. I am going to switch all my summer watering stations to this model.
