Automatic Water Bowls
The BOWLS come in three sizes. KING SIZE BOWL can provide water for 300 mature birds. GAME SIZE BOWL can provide water for 200 game birds. BABY CHICK SIZE BOWL can provide water for 250 baby chicks.
Each BOWL includes a durable plastic bowl and one complete brass assembly. The BOWL is will not rust or corrode and should not be harmed by most medications. The brass valve assembly that comes with the BOWL is made from solid brass and attaches to standard 1/2 inch pipe (NPT thread). The brass assembly can be easily disassembled for cleaning. To connect the water bowl to your garden hose there are two options. You can purchase the proper garden hose adapter and 1/2 inch pipe at your local hardware store, or use one of our MOUNT KITS, either the TRIPOD KIT or the WALL MOUNT KIT. Each MOUNT KIT contains both the mount and the necessary connections to enable you to directly connect the waterer to your garden hose.
The BOWL GUARD acts as an anti-roost device, and it helps prevent debris from getting into the water. Install it above the bowl.
We carry replacement parts for the bowls. The COMPLETE BRASS ASSEMBLY is identical to the brass assembly that is included with each of the water bowls described above. The REPLACEMENT VALVE come in packages of 5, and each is just the valve portion of the brass assembly.
Use the VALVE TOOL (sold separately) to remove and replace the valve.
I want something that can be used off a gravity feed line from a 15 gallon water tank. Will this work off of a low pressure water tank like this?
The bowl operates within 10-70 psi. So it should work if your water pressure is between this range.
re: the automatic water bowls:
1. How do you clean out dirt from the bowl once it is set up (tripod) or mounted (wall)?
2. the wall mount kit: how wide is the portion of the bracket that screws on to the wall? Am wanting to mount on a 2 x 4 and wondering if that will fit.
There is a brass assembly that has a quarter turn twist off piece so you can get the bowl off. Same with either mounting choices. The wall mount kit is a little wider then a 2x4. One set of the lag screws provided is more then sufficient to keep in place though.
How tall is the waterer?
The King size Automatic Water Bowl (sku #4YKB) measures 8-1/2" diameter, 2-3/4" deep, holds 1-1/2 quarts. The king size bowl is recommended for mature birds.
In the video he used a valve kit for the bucket is this provided in the wall mount kit or do you have to purchase separately. I do not see it listed as a separate item to purchase? thank you
The wall mount kit is in the picture. This kit includes; 6" pipe, 2 brackets, end piece that attaches to pipe, and the nuts and bolts to attach product. Instructions included. also hose adapter
Is the gravity feed kit for this waterer come with the tripod kit or the water bowl, or do I have order the gravity feed hose and valves separately?
The fittings and tubing needed to connect to a plastic bucket, are only included in the tripod kits. These parts are not available separately.
Worked perfectly for meI bought this last spring(March 2015), and it worked perfectly. I had to adjust it a couple of times through the warm seasons, but that's to be expected. Sand and dirt get blown around when it's windy. Cleaning out is super simple too. Make sure you watch the video and do the same. I shut it down and drained it for the winter. Now I know how much i like it, lugging out 5 gallons of water all the time sucks. I would highly recommend this water.
water bowl.I bought this water bowl last year but with freezing weather at the time, I didn't get around to hooking it up until this spring--too late for a refund. No matter what I did, I could not get it to work. The float would not adjust to a height appropriate to stop the water flow, and I also could not get it to stop squirting through the connections. A grand waste of money.
