SKU: 1412 Category:

This simple hanging drinker is suitable for adult chickens- ducks and game birds. Each drinker comes with two metres of 6mm bore tubing- a saddle connector for 20mm or 25mm alkathene pipe and a hanging strap. All of these items (or equivalent alternatives) can also be supplied as spares- and the unit comes with eight feet of hanger cord and an adjuster. The drinker works when water trickles from a low pressure  header tank into the black stem at the top of the red cone. A series of narrow holes allows the water to run down the outside of the cone and gather in the trough- where it is easy for birds to access it. The fact that this item is supsended above the ground means that its height is adjustable and versatile- and every bec 75 drinker comes with an inbuilt filter element. we also supply spare stems which are fully assembled- filters and main springs- as well as inline filters which can be fitted to 6mm bore tube running from header tanks. For small scale operations which only require one drinker- we recommend that you consider buying our outlet for water drum for 6mm bore tubing. This handy fitting will allow you to connect the drinker straight to a bucket or any other similar water tank. It is important to remember that the valve stem assemblies on this item are not frost resistant. If the temperature drops below zero degrees- the water will freeze and burst the plastic valve stem. We recommend that you either use this item indoors- or empty all tubes and drinkers during periods of prolonged sub-zero temperatures. Various spare parts are available. Diameter of trough 21.5cm VALVE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS Insert the black valve unit into the top of the cone- valve downwards. Before inserting the valve into the top of the cone- check to ensure the top and bottom caps (part nos 412767 and 411822) are not loose. Push the black adjuster collar down until it locates into the threads. Care must be taken not to cross the threads. Continue screwing in a clockwise direction until the ratchet is reached. Normally- eight clicks give a starting point for adjustment. Level can then be controlled by rotating the adjuster collar clockwise for more depth- anti-clockwise for less. B.E.C. 75’s should be installed and filled at least 24 hours before introducing the birds to ensure that they are working correctly. If a unit overfills- carefully dismantle the valve and check for any dirt or contamination. Reassemble and retest.
