The JUG 4 hole automatic waterer is ideal for larger herds in feedlots, multiple pens or in the open. The JUG waterers act like a thermos with their super insulated polyethylene casing and is reliable in both cold and warm climates. (For severe climates, use the additional heat option).
The JUG waterer uses thermal energy to keep a warmer drinking environment which will allow for energy-free or energy efficient automatic watering. For Energy Free Models in marginal climates, you need enough animals drinking to keep water in the tank warm enough to provide heat energy (At least 15 head per drinking bowl.) Otherwise a small 65-watt heater may be added to make the JUG Energy Efficient. In either case it is primarily thermal energy, not electrical energy keeping the water fresh and at a constant temperature, summer and winter. The average electrical cost for a JUG Livestock Waterer is $10.00 for the Entire Season.
External Adjustment Screw will lower or raise the amount of water exposed to the weather.
Inspection Cover - The JUG has an inspection cover that can easily be removed for inspection and service of the float valve
External Drain Plug - The external drain plug allow easy draining of the water from the JUG tank. The JUG's design keeps the water free from feed or hay, but most water has iron bacteria which will leave a residue in the tank over time. It is recommended to drain and clean the tank periodically.
