I have two. I use them with my chickens and goats. I do raise them up on block to keep the water cleaner for the chickens and easier for the goats to drink. It can be a little difficult to clean; I just sweep out with my hand and refill. I have trouble tightening the connection without a channel locks, bur that's acceptable. No more hauling water with a bucket.

About 25 years ago I fabricated automatic waterers for my horse barn. I was tired of the maintenance involved and expense of keeping the manufactured ones in service. The top of the waterer box I had laser cut to fit the configuration of the waterer pan. Reworked the inlet and float to come through the bottom. Power inside the enclosure provide means of heating. First I used magnetic oil pan heaters, but now simply a 75 watt bulb. The waterer serves two stalls. In time I replace the pan. This is the third time I have replaced the pans. Although the pans have doubled in price since the start, in has been far more economical and less maintenance than the manufactured ones I used to use. Please continue manufacturing this product. The next owner of my ranch may need them for replacements. Ha!

This is a great waterer. My only recommendation is to have the edges either rounded over, or filed smooth. I am using these for my chickens, which have taken to it as the preferred water source. My goats are also more inclined to use this to any other water source available to them. Any time I notice that they are getting some dirt etc. in them, I just dump, swirl and set them back in place.

During lambing season, this newly purchased waterer has eliminated a time consuming job of keeping fresh,clean water available for both ewes and lambs. We have placed one in the birthing field and one in the nursery field to accommodate nearly three hundred Katahdin hair sheep. We have been shepherds for only five years, but this galvanized Kane Waterer deserves a five-plus-star rating from both sheep and shepherds !

I like the construction but as stated in the other reviews a deeper pan would be nice. However, ours plugged after a few months. I couldn't find any instructions online for how to clean it so after I tried to push a needle into it to clear it, I made the mistake of taking it apart. The orifice for the water is very small which may be necessary but the problem is that the float valve assembly is extremely cheap and the hinge for it only connects to a plastic dome that then has a friction fitting to a brass nipple. I'm not sure it will go back on and stay. If you do buy one and it clogs, reach under and lift up the float valve and then push a needle into the orifice from the outside to clean it. This may be the best automatic waterer on the market but it's not well made.
