How to install your Automatic Mains Pressure Drinker

Don't worry, our Automatic Waterer Systems are designed to be installed with nothing more than a standard garden hose. You don't need to worry about messing around with pipes or PVC cement. We bet that even the most reluctant DIY-er can have this system up and running in under 20 minutes!

  1. Connect the supplied outlet piping to the black Header Tank.
  2. Nipple outlets should be installed so birds reach up at around a 45 degree angle. Measure the ideal Drinker height on the basis of your smallest bird and install the mounting plate for the Header Tank accordingly.
  3. Fit the nylon inlet valve.
  4. Run a high quality garden hose (12 mm) from your water source to the Header Tank. Slide the stainless steel clamp onto the hose, push the hose onto the inlet valve and clamp securely in place.
  5. Turn on the water, check all connections and monitor your birds to ensure even the smallest one in the flock can access the water. If access is an issue for smaller birds, you can provide a step (e.g. a paver) or lower the height of the system.  

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.

Q. Will the Header Tank deteriorate in the sun? 

A. Poultry prefer cool water. Even in an Automatic Waterer, the water reservoir will heat up in the sun. For that reason, even a UV treated waterer should always be positioned in the shade.

Q. How does the Header 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. What type of birds can use a Nipple Drinker? 

A. Nipple Drinkers are ideal for ducks and geese, which tend to make a mess of the drinking water. But chickens, quail, pigeons, other poultry, aviary birds and game birds can all use Nipple Drinkers.
