FRESH CLEAN WATER. EVERY TIME!
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.

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 installed our drinking post this summer for our two warmbloods and 1 mule. I actually have looked forward to the electric bill each month to see the cost savings that the drinking post has given us. So far this winter our electric bill is averaging 300 kWh less then the same month last year when we were using a water tank heater. That is $30 of savings a month just from 1 tank heater! At this rate the drinking post will pay for itself in 2.5 years. It has been worth every penny! My animals love drinking out of it, getting a fresh consistent temperature water each time.

We have used these for 15+ years and can’t say enough about them. Talk about maintenance free. This is it.

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!!

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

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 �

I’ve had my drinking post watered in Northern Illinois for 3+ years, two horses, and it’s been a champion! I often say it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. What’s not to love? Easy, safe, healthy for the horses, time and money savings. Had to do some minor maintenance on it this year, replaced the bowl since the holder for a screw did eventually wear down. The maintenance videos are all well done, but I still called for some help and got the best customer service you can imagine. It’s deceptively simple but don’t underestimate it!

We've had ours for a couple years now and they've worked perfectly, 100% of the time. Worth every penny and then some for the peace of mind!

SO happy with the Drinking Post Waterers. We've had ours for three years now and couldn't be more pleased. Love that they don't require electricity and work even in the harsh mountain winters!

We installed a Drinking Post in November 2017 and have gone through two of the most brutal February’s we can remember in Montana. The only problem we had was when it was -32 temperature and -59 wind chill. The paddle froze open and that was my fault as I had it screwed down too tight. The DP is easy to install, uses no power and ours works awesome. I have had a couple issues with a horse that didn’t want to learn how to drink and Brad answered almost immediately with a solution. All of our other horses caught on to the DP in a day or two. We have used other automatic waterers and the DP is hands down better! We love our DP!

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 was skeptical that my mini’s would be able to use the watering post but after dealing with hot Florida summers, mold and hoses I really wanted to give it a try. In the beginning the ponies couldn’t figure out the paddle. I contacted Drinking Post and they sent out a much larger paddle (looks like a brick) and they took to it right away. I am happy to report that even my 6 week old colt has mastered the watering post.

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

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.
