How to install your Automatic Poultry Drinker


We recommend installing your Automatic Poultry Drinker in a shady spot, as all birds prefer cool water. Follow the steps below for easy installation, after securing a water supply at the spot of your choice.


  1. Connect the outlet piping supplied to the base of the header tank
  2. Fit the Lubing Cup outlet
  3. Determine the reach height of the smallest bird to work out the height of the Lubing Cup from the ground - this should be eye level for the smallest bird. Now mark on the timber frame where the mounting plate for the tank will be and install using the screws provided.
  4. Fit the tank to the mounting bracket
  5. Fit the nylon inlet valve. Now slide the stainless steel clamp onto the garden hose, fit the garden hose firmly onto the nylon inlet valve and clamp securely into place.
  6. Go turn on the water and check that the tank is filling and water is releasing into the Lubing Drinker Cup.


NB. Poultry should have access to fresh water at all times. This may require the installation of more than one Poultry Drinker depending on the design of your coop.


*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.

Dine a Chook Feeders and Drinkers are built to last and come with an exclusive guarantee. Don’t run over them with a tractor and we bet you won’t need to buy another Feeder or Drinker again!
