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.

Works great the only complaint I have is that the Nipple waterers are not red. Hung for two weeks without one chicken using it. Colored the nipples red and instant success. Why not make them red instead of yellow?

Works great. Chickens caught on quickly.

This waterer has a great design and it's tough. I love the way the nipples are set in so that they don't get in the way. I was worried the chickens wouldn't use it, but I took one chicken and placed her beak on the nipple a few times for one day. I then took the other water source away. The chicken almost immediately started using the nipples and all the other chickens followed suit. My grandson reaches in the run to remove the lid for me and I fill it from above with the hose, which means I don't have to teach in with a full bucket. My hens now have constant clean water. I'm getting the smaller versions for my baby chicks.

This is the first time we've used this type of waterer and we love it. It's easier for the kids to manage and cleaner than traditional waterers. Highly recommend these to folks. May not be great once winter rolls around again but we'll see.

At last. A nipple water drinker that is realistic to use. Bottom mounted nipples mean you cannot set the bucket down, full or empty. The recessed nipple design eliminates that problem, as well as the mess chicks can make of open water designs that fill with pine shavings and poop. My chicks love it, and so do I.
