Nipple Drinkers are by far the best option for ducks, geese and waterfowl in order to prevent contamination and fouling of the drinking water. While an Automatic Duck Drinker will provide reliable water, many breeds of waterfowl also require a larger body of water for good health.

It is recommended that the highest possible quality of garden hose is used for installing your drinker in order to ensure it will withstand constant water pressure.
How to install the Mains Pressure Duck Drinker
The most difficult part of installing a Dine a Chook Automatic Drinker is getting a water supply in the coop. Once you have that, installation is a breeze!
- Connect the outlet piping supplied to the base of the header tank
- Fit the Lubing Cup outlet
- 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.
- Fit the tank to the mounting bracket
- 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.
- Go turn on the water and check that the tank is filling and water is released when you gently press the Lubing Nipple.
NB. Ducks and chickens need access to water 24/7, including where they roost as well as outside of the coop. 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.
