Ready For an Easier Solution?
Steve Lantvit from Sure In The Saddle discusses his personal experience with Drinking Post Waterers in Northern Indiana, right on Lake Michigan. For years they did it the old fashioned way dealing algae in the troughs, or manually breaking the ice with a hatchet. Or worse, implementing expensive heaters only to be used as toys for the horses.
- No more dirty, standing water risking the health of your livestock.
- No more expensive heating bills, or broken troughs from freezing.
- No more hauling buckets or hoses around.

Honestly the most efficient and reliable waterer I’ve ever used. Worry free and low maintenance! Customer service is excellent and I recommend to everyone with livestock if any sort. We’ve had ours for 4 years and have had zero issues with it! Love love the product!

I can't say enough good things about these waterers!!! It has literally saved me so much time, plus the horses love it, AND I no longer have lugging buckets around killing my back and neck! I love, love, love having the waterer! Even our new mini learned to use it within a day! They stand in line at their "water fountain"!! We love it, they love it!! ❤️😁

We Haven’t touched a hose for 2 years now. Fill a bucket next to the drinking post and see which one your horse chooses �

These are life changing! Say goodbye to scrubbing algae, filling troughs, frozen hoses, breaking ice, and worrying that your horse isn't drinking enough because the water got hot in the sun. We own a small farm/boarding facility and had 16 of these waterers installed and I couldn't be happier. They're practically maintenance-free and always work - even in the dead of winter. Not only do our horses love them (all but one learned how to use them in under 3 days…the dum-dum took a full 7 days), but they are also great for the goats. We're even contemplating modifying one so it sits just a few inches off the ground so the pigs can use them too! The Drinking Post Waterers are something that I now couldn't imagine being without. -Nicole Marts, Virginia

I am so satisfied that I now have 5. It is so great to have clean, fresh water year round. We have 25 quarters horses of all sizes and operate the waterers easily. Any time I need parts they are always available. Best thing about the units is they are simple and easy to work on if repair is needed. Our first unit was installed on 2014. Doug D. Sioux Falls SD

We installed one last year (2018) and it worked beautifully through a very cold, windy Pennsylvania winter. I just purchased two more for other pastures and can’t wait till the ground thaws to get them installed!! They have stood up to our horses kicking at them, chewing on them and trying to bite the paddle! The post did not get brittle in the cold like PVC does. Great work saving product!! No more cleaning dirty, slimy troughs and wasting water and electricity!!

The drinking post has made our life so much easier!!! No more carrying buckets or wrestling hoses ! We highly recommend buying this product. We trained our horses in 2 days exactly like the video says . It works!!!! It did take a few weeks to train the donkeys, but donkeys are stubborn that’s not a secret lol they love the waterer and actually use it for entertainment. Also customer service is amazing . All questions answered right away !! Very helpful and responsive. Thank you drinking posts for everything ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Angel - Michigan

Our drinking post has worked well in the -30 degree range here in upstate NY. We were’nt sure how it would hold up to the low temps and abundance of snow but so far no problems.

I installed two last fall nieghbors were cautious about them and cold weather 2 weeks ago we had negative 20 temp with minus 34 wind chill and they worked as advertised while my other waters were a solid block of ice. Those cold temperatures lasted 10 days very pleased and would recommend for anyone.

We don’t need a tank to clean, keep full and put a heater in during the winter. We have a clean, constant, frost free water supply that takes care of all of that.

Drinking posts rock! I live in northern Michigan...in sand...with big draft horses who try to knock them around. No issues. Negative twenty or so below zero, no problem. I own two of them going on 4 years. No problems.

This is my second review I’m leaving based on the unbeatable customer service. I needed a part on a day they were closed. Not only did they call back, not only did they meet me on a day they closed but I received the part for FREE!!! I’m blown away by this company AND their product. I’ve had it for 2.5 years and it works sooooo good. Never freezes in the winter and I have mine out in the elements. Quality Customer service is hard to come by these days... not with this place. THANK YOU

I LOVE my drinking post!! Think about all of the stress related to water for your horse, now imagine that gone. No more worrying about whether your horse has water, cleaning buckets or troughs, dumping toughs that could be a breeding ground for algae and mosquitoes, filling buckets, de-icing them, worrying about heated water buckets getting unplugged, etc. It was easy to install - my well guy hooked it up easily and with no prior experience. It was easy to trouble-shoot. When extreme cold weather hit, I had a problem with it leaking. I called Brad who talked me through how to fix it and I (with no plumbing where-with-all) fixed it in 30 seconds. I was very worried that my horse wouldn't figure out how to use it. The key is to 1. introduce them to it and you depress the paddle so that they get used to the sound and know it is where water comes out and 2. use the training paddle. I didn't use the training paddle and my horse wasn't using the waterer. The second I put on the training paddle and dribbled molasses in the bowl he got it IMMEDIATELY. The waterer is outside (under a barn overhang). When I stable my horse overnight in a stall I use a bucket. I've seen him come out of the stall and go to the drinking post rather than drink out of his bucket, he likes it that much. Honestly, I don't know why all horse people don't have one.

We installed the drinking posts two years ago. This last weekend was beyond cold in Ontario Canada. (-41 Celsius) unfortunately the anchor for the paddle broke right off the bottom of the bowl. HOWEVER, System Fencing, (Dealer) had the bowl in stock and less than 24 hrs later we were up and running again. So easy to fix and replace even in this temperature. Thank you for an exceptional product! (And calling me back even though I didn’t need your help after all in finding my closest dealer).

We currently have 8 drinking post automatic waterers for our horses. We have one in each of 3 paddocks and 1 in each of our 5 stalls. Installing the drinking post automatic waterers was the best decision we made when building our barn and paddocks 4 years ago. A special shout out to Brad at drinking post who's customer service is above 5 stars - he is always there to help with any questions and goes above and beyond the call of duty to help with questions, etc. I highly recommend drinking post waterers to everyone I know. They are maintenance free except for the occassional cleaning of grass that horses sometimes leave when they take a drink. I love these waterers!!!

Excellent customer service! We had some trouble with extreme weather this year and Brad Piper called and helped us immediately! Thank you so much

we installed a drinking post waterer in the fall, and it has turned out to be awesome! I highly recommend having it! Customer service is top notch, too. We had issues with freezing in extremely cold temperatures, and they got back to us immediately and resolved the issues!

I was worried about freezing up in the open paddock with temps negative 20 degrees F in the winter. Nope! Care FREE all winter long!! Hallelujah!!

We ordered about 5 or 6 last year they were easy to install had some hiccups getting them them to work at first but due to the great customer service that walked us through all the trouble shooting and making sure we had everything we needed they are all working great it's the first winter with them they aren't missing a beat would highly recommend plan on buying a few more

Have had them for over 9 years. Love them! Wish I had installed in my pastures too! Great customer service.

We installed DP two years ago in both our barn and pasture. Couldn't be more happy. We had a terrible long winter in the PNW and midst the ice and snow the DP's never failed. Such a gift not to have to plug in water heaters and deal with breaking ice. We bring in new horses for training and it has been amazing to me how quickly they learn to drink from the DP. Thrilled with our product and the help and service we have received.
