Where to locate the Mains Pressure Chicken Drinker?

Just like you, poultry loves cold refreshing water. So even a Mains Pressure Drinker needs to be located in a shady place to avoid the water getting hot. Depending on how large your flock and chicken run are, you may consider a second Dine a Chook Chicken Drinker in another position elsewhere in the run, so your birds have access to water in different locations.

Does it require maintenance?

Generally no. However, you should clean your Lubing Drinker Cups every week or two to prevent gunk from building up. Just squirt them out with a hose!

How to install the Automatic Mains Pressure Drinker - Twin Cup

The best part about the Dine a Chook system is we have made everything so simple. You don't have to be confident with pipes or plumbing because all you need to connect this system is a good quality garden hose. Once you have a water supply available in your shady spot, follow these simple instructions and your Automatic Chicken Waterer will be up and running in 15 minutes or less.

  1. Connect the outlet piping supplied to the base of the water tank
  2. Fit the Lubing Cups
  3. Determine the reach height of your smallest bird - the Lubing Cups should be about eye-level - and mark the mounting height for the header tank
  4. Fit the tank to the mounting bracket
  5. Fit the nylon inlet valve
  6. Slide the stainless steel clamp onto the garden hose, fit the garden hose firmly onto the nylon inlet valve and clamp securely into place

*Critically Important - Always monitor for the first few hours so you can ensure the smallest bird in the flock can access the water in the Lubing Cup. If the bird can not access the water slightly lower the position of the system. Congratulations. You now have the best automatic mains pressure system installed in your chicken coop: Genuine Dine a Chook.    

The Dine a Chook Difference

We had chickens long before we started Dine a Chook, and we still do! We understand the problems that backyard chicken keepers face and our goal is to provide solutions.

That is why Dine a Chook Chicken Feeders and Drinkers stand out from the competition: Our products have been extensively tested in Australian backyards, including our own! Our patented innovations and unique design features really work to make backyard chicken keeping easier.

We know how important good coop management is. A clean, dry coop, and uncontaminated feed and water, are essential for poultry health. Our Feeders reduce waste, keeping feed dry and off the floor. And our Waterers keep water clean and prevent spillage.

Dine a Chook Feeders and Drinkers are made in Australia, supporting Aussie jobs. And we use genuine Lubing Drinker Outlets from Germany because they are the best for poultry. Our products are built to last and come with an exclusive guarantee. Tested in the harsh Australian climate, don’t run over them with a tractor and we bet you won’t need to buy another Feeder or Drinker again!

FAQ

Q. Will the tank deteriorate in the sun? 

A. You should never put a poultry feeder in direct sunlight. The main reason is that poultry need fresh, cool water. So you should position your tank in the shade for this reason

Q. How does the tank work? 

A. The horizontal ball valve refills the tank as the water drains, similar to a toilet cistern. The process is automatic.

Q. Can I connect to the mains or only use a hose? 

A. You can connect to a tap, the mains or use a garden hose.

Q. Does the tank develop algae? 

A. The tank is designed to block out UV so as to inhibit the growth of algae. 

Q. Do chickens need to press down on the float in the Drinker Cup? 

A. No. Our upgraded floats automatically fill the Lubing Cup with water.
