All good. The sheep love it and it seems to work. I just put them in with little effort, but we’ll see how long they last. I suspect they will perform well due to the fact that the filling mechanism is protected from them messing with it.
The instructions could be a little more detailed… like how to access the float system, but it wasn’t rocket science.

I was excited to give this a try but was definitely disappointed.
Cons: instructions come in Spanish, hard to assemble, hard to access float area without something to pry off cover, chickens stand in the water and poop in the water so you have to dump it every day (defeating the reason I bought it. plus, it has made a mud hole from dumping it every day), edges are sharp and I have been cut multiple times when I dump/clean it, the float is finicky and doesn't work all the time (we use a gravity water system so this may not be an issue for some), hard to clean (especially the float area because you have to have something to pry the cover off with).
Pros: heavy-duty, won't tip over, holds a decent amount of water.
I do NOT recommend this with chickens. Maybe it would be good for a dog or an animal that won't stand in the water and poop in it.

Came with very little instructions and the instructions received were only available in Spanish. Float was/is inoperable. You need to be handy in order to figure out how to get the float to work. We couldn't.

Okay, it is not a bad product but the idea of a continuous water supply sounds good but is not practical. Water gets dirty and I have to dump it and flush it out because I don't want my animals drinking dirty water. I unhooked the water supply and manually fill it up daily to keep water fresh. Would give it a higher rating if it came with attached legs which are much needed. Wish Premier 1 offered the leg attachment options.
