Using only top quality PVC Fittings, this drinker attachment uses a commercial grade lubing cup and is permanently glued with high grade PVC cement and will never leak. Unlike other yellow-tongued lubing cups on the market, these will have a decent amount of water in them all the time without running dry or overflowing.
Developed specifically for the needs of backyard chickens this assembly is GUARANTEED FOR LIFE by Dine-a-Chook! Should there be any issues, please return to us for an exchange or full refund.
This drinker attachment has a 3/4″ Male BSP Thread – 99% of drums on the market have this thread. Our preference is the dark green Maze 100L water tanks from Bunnings (which are around $60. As it holds a large amount of water it will be slow to heat up and doesn’t go mouldy. You may need to drill out the bung hole on your drum before installing this fitting, and then you are ready to go).
Once setup, this system only needs a quick top up to refill the water container as the level decreases. In summer, dependant on the size opening of the drum, you could easily dump in a whole bag of ice from the local petrol station to keep your girls in fresh, cold water even on the hottest days.
To keep the unit clean – Hose Directly into the cup every 2 weeks. You will not damage the cup.
