Horse Waterer Installation Instructions

Join Steve Lantvit as he installs SIX new non electric Drinking Post Waterers for his cattle in ONE DAY! It does not get any quicker or easier when it comes to installing new waterers. Drinking Posts patent pending design makes installation quicker and easier than ever. To install a new horse or cattle waterer, simply connect you incoming supply line to the base of the Drinking Post, install a bed of washed rock underneath the installation point, and back fill!

In this video, Steve is installing his new Drinking Posts for use with cattle, so he has chose an installation height of roughly 17 inches above grade. For use with horses, simply install a bit higher with 36″ above grade. For sheep, goat, hogs and shorter animals install with ~ 12″ above grade. This frost free automatic waterer will work with virtually any large animals.

  • No electricity is required to keep from freezing

  • Once installed, zero carrying cost to have a waterer sitting ‘action ready’

  • Does not require a solar panel

  • All that’s required is a pressurized water line
