Installation tips : )
- You can use a step drill bit or a spade wood drill bit but with both be careful on how much force is applied.
- A good measurement for installing your float system is to measure between 4-6 inches depending on how much water you want at one time and the weight of the bucket itself if you going to have it suspended in the air.
- In the colder winter months, you can add a small water heater that you can get from most pet stores to keep your animals water from freezing.
- A quick way to sterilize your system and keep you birds in good health is to use a capful of apple cider vinegar. (1 oz to 1 gal of water)
