The water in a drum or container should be no higher than 30 cm above the 4007 water cup, these are low pressure devices.
Genuine and original Lubing chook drinker. No alterations are made to our red lubing cup drinkers. Our red lubing cup drinkers come with original yellow float tongue becuase that is how they are designed and they work well and have worked well since we introduced them over 15 years ago. Water should not be high as there is no good reason to have high water in the cups, the chooks do not care how high the water is just that there is water available all the time.
When using this in your chicken coop you should allow the chickens to peck down into this drinker nipple to drink. Don't Mount this or other Chicken drinkers too low. Too low means damage and mess can be made more regularly, and in the case of nipples a more difficult time trying to drink. Chooks should make some effort with feeders and drinkers, but both should be easy to use and access. So put this drinker at about half way between chook eye height (alert eye height) and the chickens back or sadlle , of your smallest chicken. We have found that many people put poultry waterers too low and then tell us of problems of dirty water and clogged systems in their chicken waterer. Poultry have to drink, yet but its easy for you if you make it more difficult for your chooks etc to make a mess of the lovely Bellsouth Chicken drinkers you have bought, installed, and maintain for them.
