How To Install The Mains Pressure Poultry Drinker

Do you want a Mains Pressure Drinker that you can install in 15 minutes? Look no further than the Dine a Chook Automatic Chicken Waterer. Once you have a water supply to a shady spot, you'll be up and running in no time! 

  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. Your chickens need access to water 24/7, including where they roost as well as outside of the coop if they free-range. Consider the location of your Drinker carefully in order to ensure consistent access to water. All Drinkers are best installed in a shady spot.

*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.



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 – in New Zealand and Australia, alike. 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 backyards including our own! Our patented innovations and unique design features really work to make 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, for quality you can trust. And we use genuine Lubing Drinker Outlets from Germany because they are the best for poultry. 


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!


As a family business just over the ditch, the most important thing to us is our customers. Need help with an order? Want chicken keeping advice? If you have a question about your flock, contact us!
