We put the water tank in the barn and put new PVC in so it will be easier to water the poultry. I really like this type of system. It use the weight of the water to stop the flow of water into the little bowls. Since the fittings to the waterers are brass if it freezes they will not break, however the PVC plumbing can and will. I was a little behind last fall and broke a pipe. We made it so the whole system can be drained for freezing weather. Well at least during most of the year I will not have to haul water 3-4 times to all of the animals. Later we will hopefully be able to bring a waterline from the second well to make the system more automatic and put a faucet near or in the barn.
