Quick Clean Bucket Waterer, 5 gallon
- Capacity: 5 gal
- Approx. size: 18"H, 13" pan diameter, 2" pan depth. 5" legs
- Suited for: adults
- Number of birds: 60
- Waterfowl: yes
- Can it hang: no
- Legs, sold separately
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
- Remove lid
- Add water
- Refill with hose or bucket
- Use optional legs or set the waterer on blocks
Note: It weighs 40 lbs when full, which is too heavy for most to carry. It must be placed on a level site and make sure the valve system is clean.
Cleaning: We suggest periodically dismantling and cleaning the unit to prevent hard water and algae build up from obstructing the float system.

Best water bucket we have ever had.

Initial reaction is this waterer should work well for our baby chick room. It’s a little weird putting it together. Somewhat counter-intuitive but once you get everything in place looks good. The legs weren’t included in shipping. So far no product from Premier has shown up with all the parts.

Love this waterer.
As many others comment on various online sites, the 2 piece float tends to fill with water and then the unit does not work.
We have a large flock and 5 of these units. I was about ready to look for another option because the floats had to constantly be emptied (unless you want to use aquarium silicone to seal the seam, which I never got around to doing.)
My husband told me to just put some cork in the the float (purchased some cork from Ikea, cheap) and no more problems. The float does not sink when it fills with water, because cork floats!
Only gave 4 stars because the mfg should design the float to work without consumers having to fix their flaw.

I tried rebuilding it several times now. The float was filled with water, Soni emptied that and put the lid back on, but had no success. I have never created such a level surface, though that is also not replicable in the field. I had high hopes for less frequent water refills, but couldn’t get it to hold water for more than 20 min when it emptied onto the ground.
