Currently have 2 of these waterers...really love them. Large capacity..gives ample water in warm weather. Sturdy legs keep the crud out of the water bowl (just needs a little swishing). We ran an extra garden hose drop w/PVC shut-off above the waterers to eliminate moving filled units. Only real design issue... top opening needs to be larger to make cleaning easier. Our large combed roosters & hens have been able to use them easily. Will be ordering more soon !!

Seemed like a good idea but it is hard to fill- must be taken out of coop so water doesn't run all over. It is very hard to move when full. Has to be on level ground. Can't scrub out the inside.
The birds do seem to use it just fine but just hard for me to use it. Our water gets really smelly inside this container. Not like the metal ones.

I thought this water container would be great. It works great ounce it is full and the lids back on it but getting it to filled up is a pain. The valve at the bottom doesn't close and water goes everywhere. I have to take the thing out of the chicken coup to fill so i don't make a mess.

Really like this Waterer. It took me a few days to figure out on how to get the vacuum seal to work (my fault for not reading the instructions)but now it works perfectly. Good deal and good performance. Thanks.

I love the capacity and ease of filling, but don't like having to dump it to clean the bowl. Be sure it's level or you'll have over flow. The water valve is a little tricky at first. The chickens love it, but the bowl needs to be cleaned frequently.
