Richard H: We recently installed our second set of Behlen waterers bringing our total to eleven. We auger a hole at the center of the installation site. Then ditchwitch a three foot trench to lay pipe and electric wire. We insert a 1' steel culvert cut to 3 1/2' length set on bricks so the pipe and wire can be brought up the pipe (between the bricks) without fear of damage. We also use a "spacer" like in wells to keep the pipe and wire away from the sides of the culvert. Form and pour a concrete slab to the top of the culvert. We made ours about 8" thick. Hammer drill the four corners and attach the unit with lags. The connection is easy with an electric junction box already attached within the unit. We put a shutoff valve in each unit in case service is needed and attach with clamps to the hose provided with the unit.

The new units have some improvements which we like and they all work well for us. Our units are shared between several paddocks and fields and provide for about 120 horses.

Hope this is helpful.

Joseph L: I like the waterer. To hook it up I just put a plug on it and pluged it in. The water just hooks up with a hose and hose clamp. I poured a concrete slab with a couple bags of redimix and put bolts in it to mount it. Nov 19, 2013

Karen T: This is not a self filling water bucket, you have to change and add water yourself. You simply plug it into an electrical outlet. Nov 30, 2013
