We've been using this for about a week & so far, so good.
I didn't have any trouble regulating the water flow, as some have complained of, only needing to adjust it a couple of times immediately upon set-up.
I will say this, though - the legs on this are really lacking. They do not attach to the unit but rather, they depend on the weight of the water to keep them in place. I'm thinking about using Gorilla Glue to attach them, haven't decided yet.
As stated in directions & other reviews, you must have the unit level for it to function correctly. Common sense, really, and easily accomplished. We just eyeballed it, no problems.
I do flush it every so often to rid it of grit & debris that finds it's way in, which is to be expected.
Overall, a handy product that keeps the hens' water clear of poop.

Works great! Water tray at height stays cleaner longer. Less frequent fill intervals with large tank. Simple to fill. We love it!!!

I raise small batches (150 - 250) of broilers in the coop in winter and outside in summer. I have used double-wall, galvanized waterers for over 30 years and they never last very long. Found these and thought I'd give them a try; bought two on a test basis. They worked better than anticipated. I have read all the reviews here and wonder about valve problems because I have experienced none. They have worked so well, I ordered two more.

The first 2 days, my ducks drained all 8 gallons of water by playing in it. No biggie, I'm use to my ducks playing in their water. On day 3 it was still almost full. I really like the design. Top filling is SO much easier then the fill and flip ones I had. I am extremely happy with this waterer.
