Have owned the water cooler style and love it..should have bought more of them !Date published: 2016-07-23Rated 5 out of 5 by BarbaraJ from Very efficient AND attractive! This product is a great addition for my aviary community. I particularly like the open top that captures and filters rain water.Date published: 2016-06-12Rated 1 out of 5 by 12345 from refillable top I love all the features of the product, but I cannot get it to hold any water. I have taken it apart several times, reviewed the instructions, put it back together again just to have it completely leak out entirely overnight. If I am doing something wrong I would be happy to know what.Date published: 2016-03-10Rated 3 out of 5 by Doug74 from Feeder & Waterer Feeder is great but watering device leaked out in just a few hours. Filled 3 times and hoped my birds would not lose interest. Finally flipped rubber washer over and leaking stopped. This type of waterer doesn't do well on a windy day either. Leaks when tilted by 10 to 15 mile gusts. I still use it but in a sheltered spot.Date published: 2015-10-13Rated 3 out of 5 by Kathleigh from Not sure yet I've had this up for a few weeks and have yet to see a bird visit. Easy to fill and I'd love to give it a 5 star rating- will report back if there is any news...Date published: 2015-08-24Rated 1 out of 5 by clydesdad from Needs protected area When the wind blows the entire waterer drains as the basin empties continually as it swings. We've yet to see a bird approach the waterer even when it is full and not swinging---majorly disappointed in this purchase.Date published: 2015-08-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard from Easy to fill I bought this a week ago and I haven't seen any birds yet! It may be because we have had a great deal of rain lately!!Date published: 2015-07-31Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from What a surprise I just received this waterer a couple weeks ago. I have had a bird bath and a home made waterer before, but this thing is the bees knees. It is almost as popular with the birds as the bird feeders. All kinds of visitors all day long. I haven't had any rain since I put it out but I have used the top fill feature and it works like a charm. I might get another one for the other side of the house.Date published: 2014-07-04

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is the importance of providing water for wild birds?
A: Wild birds need fresh, clean water just as much as they need seed. Birds stay healthy by using water not just for drinking, but also for bathing, cleaning their feathers and to remove parasites. Waterers are better options than bird baths because they provide birds with fresh, clean water that prevents dirt and debris from contaminating it. In hotter climates or seasons, providing water for birds makes it easy for them to have access to a water source and retain their energy. By adding a water source, you also can attract a larger variety of birds to your yard. You may even attract more colorful birds that don't eat seed, but are in need of water!
Q: Will adding a waterer attract a larger variety of birds?
A: All birds needs water to survive, so not only will you attract birds that regularly visit your seed feeders, but you may also attract insect and berry eating birds that you may not see at your seed feeders.
Q: How do I clean my waterer?
A: It's important to keep the water you offer the birds fresh. Empty out any old water after a few days and replace with fresh water. Clean the waterer every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution. Be sure to rinse thoroughly before refilling and hanging for the birds to enjoy.
