Product Description
These dependable waterers hook up to any standard 1/2 inch NPT pipe to provide a limitless supply of clean water. Safely operates between 10-70 psi. Holds 2 pints of water and waters up to 175 birds. Bowl measures 6 1/2 inches in diameter and 2 1/2 inches deep.

Thread the valve assembly into the bowl (the valve assembly is completely assembled in its own bag) by turning it clockwise until it is firmly seated inside the bowl (there will no longer be any threads showing). Attach a garden hose to the valve assembly; an adapter (1/2 MIP to female hose- not included) will be needed to attach to the garden hose. NOTE: Make sure water is turned off during assembly of the garden hose to the valve assembly.

The 2500 Series Fountains operate on a gravity basis. **For proper operation, suspend plumb approximately 2-3 inches from the ground.

Valve Adjustment
The valve safely operates at water levels of 10-70 PSI. Although bowl water levels are automatically maintained and will remain constant with a properly adjusted valve, water levels may need to be adjusted. Turn the control tube cap counter clockwise to disconnect it from the post and remove the valve assembly. To increase the water level, move the control nut toward the spring. To decrease the water level, move the control nut away from the spring. When the desired water level is obtained, turn the lock nut against the control nut and tighten the lock nut with pliers. Reassemble the control tube cap onto the post by turning it clockwise. Reattach garden hose to valve assembly.

Disconnect the post at the control tube cap. (When the control tube cap is removed, spill or water loss will not occur).

Runs over
July 6, 2017
Provides plenty of water, nice simple design. Having a hard time keeping it from running over. Will work ok for a few days. Then start over flowing again. Should include a valve stem wrench with it. Not sure if I would buy one again just have to see if I can get it working right.

Merchant Response:Sounds like a defective unit. You can get a replacement just call 800-260-0888.

I was so glad to find this on the Internet. I had relied on the chick and adult waterer for my small flock and was amazed at the simplicity and ingenuity of design. In reading reviews, I could only suggest that the person experiencing leakage after a year needed to replace the valve core.

I thought the use of the standard pneumatic tire valve core was astounding. I know rust breaking loose from pipes may score the poly seal but for less than $1, it can be simply replaced. They are so easy to disassemble and clean. As I am about to return to a farm environment where I shall need to purchase new ones.

Great item. Had a little leak at first, but tightened the valve stem that controls the off/on. Works great now. Expanding with more chickens-just ordered a second one!

I have the small and large version of these founts. Both worked well for 1 year after which the valve will not turn off regardless of spring adjustment and bowl constantly overflows and floods the cage.

Much easier
July 20, 2012
Thanks, these make checking water a LOT easier, especially checking 5 coops when it's so hot out! I like being able to see for sure that there is water available to my chickens and that it is working properly. The only change I would make is to make the connector garden hose size, but that's just me.

We have used this waterer for our small flock of egg-layers for more than five years and it is still going strong. Very well made and a great design. Don't hesitate to buy this one! :)

I have been using the automatic waterers in my chicken pens and they work great. I have 2 waterers hooked up to a 55 gallon barrell. Excellent Product.

I have had these for 3 months now and it is absolutely the way to go. It is reliable, easy to clean, always stays at the level set and the chickens always have water on hand.
One thing I though might be a problem has turned to be a plus. We always have hot, dry winds here and I was concerned that the water would get too hot. As it turns out the breeze blowing across the water evaporates and cools it enough to keep it from getting too hot. I did insulate the pipe coming to it so the water in the pipe would not be hot going into the fountain.

Great product

We use these in outdoor pens that move and they work great. My husband had to find a way to hook them up but we originally bought 4 and 4 more a month later. I am guessing we will buy more in the future. They are worth the money.

Works very well!

I love this waterer. The chickens can't step in it, nor poo in it, and it gives them fresh water when they want. It doesn't work during winter freezing, so I don't recommend it in COLD WINTER regions, but I'm glad I have this. I just hook up a hose and hang it from a tree branch or hook. I even hook it up to my rain-barrel that comes off the coop, and don't need to hook it up to the faucet. (I live in Oregon, and drain it before severe frosts, and use a 2 gallon rubber bucket for those few days of severe weather).

Nice when working, but the spring loaded valve inside needs constant fiddling and replacement every 4-5 months.
