To fill, simply hold the reservoir upside down and pour water in through the wide opening. Once filled, screw the base back into place and flip the unit so it's right-side up.

RESPONSE FROM PERKY-PET
JULY 18, 2013
Thank you for taking the time to submit your online review of the Perky-Pet® Water Cooler Bird Waterer (model 780). We are sorry to hear that the birds have not yet found the new waterer.
Birds are creatures of habit and can take some time to adjust to a new feeder or water source. Also, it may take longer for them to find it if they have multiple other water sources. We recommend, just as you have done, hanging the waterer close to other feeders.
We hope this information has been helpful. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973).
