    I bought this fo my chickens and have it connected to a rain barrel. It is easy to clean out however I find the plug to be a bit finicky-it needs adjusting to ensure that it doesn't leak and can be sticky. I sprayed it with food grade silicone and this seems to help!

    I think this is a really good product for some. It was much larger than we expected. We needed this to be attached inside our outdoor kennel, but we could not get it to stay attached to the chain-link fence. So although, this product did not work for us, it's still a good product and work as intended.

    Not quite as sturdy as I was expecting. We'll see how it holds up to everyday use. Fast shipping. Good folks.

    Quick shipping. I have a horse ranch we built 15 years ago using the traditional metal waterers. Over time they rusted and I wondered how good the water could be for the horses. As they wear out, I've been replacing them with this waterer. I have been happy with the drain feature which makes it so easy to keep the bowl clean. i wish that the attachement for the water connection was on either side instead of just one side. We adapt them as needed by drilling a hole on the other side. We haven't been plugging the first hole, just set the float so that the water doesn't fill to that now open hole.

    This is absolutely the WORST product I've ever bought from Smarthome and they should stop selling it. First of all it is totally cheaply made of plastic. The product is not uniform at all warped and all three of the valves leak, regardless of tension. The drain does not appear to be sized correctly as it does not fit snugly inside the recessed sump. Out of the box, the silver valve cover broke in two places basically the tabs that hold the cover in place which I was OK to overlook. Once installed, the leaky drains and drip on intake were not to be overcome. I wasted about an hour trying different configurations of the gaskets and different pressures of tightness on the drain and valve only to give up and send it back, and I NEVER return products. This one just made me made about what a RIP OFF it was. I'd rate this ZERO stars if I was able. Poor does not adequately describe what a piece of junk this is.
