A Heat Free Waterer With A Difference
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

While doing some research on different styles and designs of heat free systems for waterers, I came across one that utilized the natural resources available to keep the water valve and plumbing free of ice without using electricity to power a small heater near the water valve. This product has three main features; an open drinking area, no required heating device, and a easy and wide access to the plumbing.

So how is this waterer different than their competition? When the underground pipe is laid, most designs have the water pipe coming up through some type of heat chamber. Then the waterer is placed on top of the chamber. Now this is where the installation starts to be different. Once the hole has been dug and the underground water pipe is laid, the heat chamber is placed in the hole and then the tub is placed inside the heat chamber. How deep it is installed depends on what type of livestock you are going to be watering. For large animals, the waterer will be higher so the animals will not step in it and hurt themselves. While smaller animals need it low enough so they can drink out of it.

Another difference is in their design, there are no access doors or seals that could freeze open or shut so there will not be any air leaks. As long as the tub is full of water, the water valve and plumbing will not freeze. There may be a thin layer of ice that may develop on top of the water, but that will be easy to break up so the livestock can get to their water.

The tub itself is made out of UV inhibited polyethylene. With a round design, the black coloring and the thick walls, this waterer is very durable and should last a very long time. Some waterers need to have concrete poured, with this system you can use concrete, but it is not necessary. They suggest that if you are going to use concrete, wait until the ground has settled after installing the waterer. If you are not going to use concrete, they recommend a 12” layer of gravel be laid down before the livestock is allowed to use it. They also recommend that the area where you are installing the heat free waterer should be well drained or have drainage tiles, because the dryer the area the better.

Cleaning seemed to be very simple and straightforward, you remove the bolts holding the tub, lift out the tub, using the existing water swirl it around several times then dump the old water. Place the tub back into its area and allow it to refill with water. I thought that sounded simple enough and this waterer seems different enough that when compared to its competition, it should stand out.
