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.

This is the only nipple watering device I have found that does not drip and leak. I have just bought my second one. Three gallon is a good size, and even though hanging in the sun I have no algae growth. No dust gets inside either. My girls have one in the coop and one in the run. Good thing, too. It hit 101 degrees here yesterday!

Very nicely made nipple water container. Hook and rope included comes in handy. Will be great for my birds to have clean water in warmer weather. Birds were very easily taught to drink from it by just tapping on nipple.

I have replaced all of my waterers with this one. I did drill a very small hole in the lids due to suction being made as the chickens drink water and no air getting into the bucket. Small little hole fixes the issue. Easy to clean also. I love being able to sit the bucket on a flat surface to fill.

So far my chicks do not love it but I do! I have various size of chikens so must put a rock under for the smalest ones. Easy to fill and much more pleasant for me
