Energy Free Requirements

Thrifty King fountains are intended to be energy-free; however, a number of factors must be met for this to be the case:

  • There must be at least 10 animals that have the Thrifty King fountain as their only source of water.
  • There must be a good seal against wind between the concrete platform and base of the unit.
  • The water seal grooves between the base, and top of the unit, and between the top of the unit and the valve cover must be filled with liquid.
  • The supply water temperature must be at least 42o F. (This may be an issue for rural or municipal water supplies.)
