Cup waterer gravity flow?

Post by abelkrista » Sat Oct 05, 2019 11:00 pm

We have a cup waterer with fresh water (pressurized) in the summer. But winters are cold and hoses freeze in the barn. Want to get away from 15gal heated buckets that they tip or get disgusting with wash back. Do the cup wateres work on gravity flow?
Which type? We have the type they push a button and it fills but what about the type with a float?
And if you put them in a barrels t (30, 50etc..) how do you secure them so they don't rip them off?

Hoping maybe I can use one in a 80gal water Trough with heater till farrowing then In barrels with de-icers/heaters this winter during farrowing/nursery when each will need to be in a separate pen and space gets tight.
Thoughts?
