Big suspension drinker working on the ballasting principle. As water is taken, the load lightens and the valve system lets water in again. This drinker is ideal for up to 300 chicks, or 150 layers, or as a home-breeder waterer. 10mm water connection. Adjustable water level. Dish diameter is 37cm and height is 55cm overall. Working pressure from 0.2 to 0.5 bar (3 to 8 psi).
Big lid for easy filling. Big carry handle. Handle also features small locating lugs to prevent slippage off-centre when suspended. UV-safe. Dimensions: 60cm high x 17cm diameter. From Europe. Optional legs clip into bottom of drinker, raising it 10cm.
Usual Crown Green & White ball-type drinker, with addition of three sturdy extendable fold-away legs.
The two smaller Crown Green & White drinkers are simple press-fit onto the base, but the larger models twist-lock for positive attachment. This makes them easy to carry and shift, using the wire handles attached. Also the larger sizes have a flat top which serves to stand the drinker upright on when filling. Ball-type drinkers prevent chicks standing in the trough.
The Converter is Crown�??s answer to watering various age chicks with the same device. It can be set up with a low roof, legs folded under and an anti-drown ring which serves to reduce the depth of water to prevent chicks drowning. For older chicks the drown-ring is removed, the extendable legs are folded out, and a tank extension is added to lift the roof to a more suitable height. This all makes the Converter a very versatile drinker. Trough is 24cm diameter. Delivery tube 1.5m with standard Crown float assembly and pipe connector. A handy feature is the small clip on the roof which secures the delivery tube out of the way.
This drinker has the benefit of being able to be filled with a hose or bucket in the top, directly into the inner tank, whilst the drinker is on the ground. The white top-cover is then locked into place, allowing the drinker to be carried or suspended. This system is far more convenient, especially with a large capacity drinker, than having to fill while inverted. Alternatively by removing the 9-litre inner liner, the unit can be used as a 13-litre conventional �??straight�?? drinker.
This drinker is large and heavy duty. The base secures firmly to the water container. It can be carried, or suspended, by the strong wire handle. The big feature is that it can be filled in-place, without having to disassemble. To do this you will firstly have to close the two small water outlet valves at the base. The lid can then be unscrewed and the water container filled with a bucket or hose. The cap is then screwed firmly back on and the valves opened again. The drinker is then back in operation. Dimensions: diameter 41cm, height 40cm. Instructions included.
