Little Giant Baby Chick Poultry Fount is a dependable waterer that provides a limitless supply of fresh and clean water for turkey poults and baby chicks while still in broiler stage. The bowl is designed to be extra-shallow in order to prevent baby birds from drowning. It has a standard hose fitting which you can hook up to any standard half-inch NPT (National Pipe Thread) pipes. It automatically feeds water into the bowl and when the water reaches the maximum level it will automatically turn the water supply off to avoid overflow. This fount is made out of heavy ridged plastic for hefty use keeping the baby birds from easily ripping it off while the fountain stem is made of rust-resistant brass for longer years of service under hefty use. It can operate between 20 psi to 50 psi. It can also hold up to 1.50 pints of water and can water up to 200 baby birds.
Thread the valve assembly into the bowl (the valve assembly is completely assembled in its own bag) by turning it clockwise until it is firmly seated inside the bowl (there will no longer be any threads showing).
Attach a garden hose to the valve assembly; an adapter (1/2 MIP to 3/4 female hose - not included) will be needed to attach to the garden hose.
NOTE: Make sure that water is turned off during assembly of the garden hose to the valve assembly.
Turn the control tube cap counter clockwise to disconnect it from the post and remove the valve assembly.
To increase water level, move control nut toward the spring.
To decrease water level, move control nut away from the spring.
When the desired water level is obtained, turn the lock nut against the control nut and tighten the lock nut with a plier. Reassemble the control tube cap onto the post by turning it clockwise. Reattach garden hose to valve assembly.
Disconnect the post at the control tube cap. (When the control tube cap is removed, spill or water loss will not occur.)
