Drinking Post’s Sophistication

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” — Leonardo da Vinci.





The great mathematician, inventor and thinker Leonardo Da Vinci has given us the  perfect quote for spring-boarding us into an exploration of how the simplicity of design lends itself to Drinking Post’s sophistication.

The simplicity of a Drinking Post waterer is one of its finest features.  With only 3 moving parts, and no need for electric power, The Drinking Post waterer provides a simple solution to providing fresh free-flowing water year-round.


How does your Drinking Post achieve that level of simplicity and sophistication? It almost sounds too good to be true.  But actually, the technology is not that foreign to most of us.  An example may even be located right in your yard.

Most of us are familiar with a more common application of simple principle of water delivery: the frost-free yard hydrant or spigot.

Frost-free yard hydrants are installed to provide water during all seasons of the year. They are manufactured and installed in such a way that they will operate throughout the winter without auxiliary heat.

Frost Free Waterer

The same is true of your new Drinking Post waterer.  When the valve is open, water flows from the supply line, through the valve, up the riser pipe and out into the water bowl.

When the valve icloses, the flow of water stops, and a drain hole in the valve opens. The water contained in the riser pipe and bowl flows out into a gravel bed, leaving the Drinking Post empty and preventing ice formation.

Following Da Vinci’s thought “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication”, we can easily see how the “simplicity” of design and function leads to Drinking Post’s sophistication.

No more precariously hauling cold buckets of water over frozen slippery ground to the livestock watering trough. You won’t need for heaters in the water tank or trough.  Drinking Post’s sophistication elimintes the associated electric bills and risks of electrocution.  No need to break through the ice on your horse water trough or cattle water trough.

A Drinking Post automatic livestock waterer runs frost-free in winter without the need for an electric heating element.  Since the base of The Drinking Post automatic livestock waterer lives 18 inches below the frostline, water flows easily to the surface bowl. The water below the frost line stays at a mainly consistent temperature – around 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

Best of all – A Drinking Post’s sophistication saves money, time and labor.

Now that’s the kind of simplicity and sophistication we can all applaud. Get started with your Drinking Post automatic livestock waterer today!
