This waterer is ideal in theory, the cover keeps the water relatively cool and free of chicken feces, and should provide continuous water, however, mine failed after about a week of use. The auto fill/stop mechanism is not working-it fails to stop and continues to overflow as long as the water is turned on. I've also had a good deal of trouble with water leaking at the plastic hardware provided to attach the provided black hose to the waterer. I've applied plumbers tape to all joints and checked the gasket, but it still leaks.
I've tried calling Fleming Outdoors' 800 number during their listed business hours several times but the call rings with no answer or voicemail.
I'm hoping they will send me a functional replacement free of charge.
