7 Gallon Waterer and Base Heater and Thermostat Combo
This package includes a 7 gallon all poly top-fill fount; a galvanized AEB Automatic Electric Fountain Base, and a preset thermostat, which automatically turns power on to the heater base at 35 degrees F and turns it off at 45 degrees F. This tough combo will last for many seasons of use.
The 7 gallon fount has the following features:
– 4.5 inch (11.4 cm) opening that is easy to fill and permits cleaning the inside of the tank.
– Two built-in handles permit fount to be carried – even when full.
– Seamless tank will not leak.
– Tank is marked in 1 gallon increments for medicating.
– Tank and trough readily clean. No soldered seams where pathogens can hide. Trough can be removed from tank to further assist cleaning.
Note: The heater base will keep your founts open with temperatures in the single digits in a sheltered area. The AEB is not designed for outdoor use where there is apt to be single digit temperatures (or colder) with a wind chill.
*This waterer package is best used for chickens 4 weeks of age or older.
