BriteTap® Chicken Waterer
Clean Water Made Simple

Traditional chicken waterers are easily contaminated when dirt, debris and droppings fall into open pans of water.

The BriteTap waterer is different. It completely shields your flock's water from contamination, so the water stays sparkling clean and hygienic. No more poop-filled pans of water for you to touch or wash out!

The BriteTap waterer is fully covered. Chickens drink from special valves called poultry nipples located on the bottom of the BriteTap waterer.

Even chickens that have used a traditional waterer all their lives quickly learn to use the BriteTap waterer because they instinctively peck at the red water valves. Once one bird learns how to drink, the rest quickly do as well -- generally in just a few minutes.

The BriteTap waterer was a finalist in the 2012 Spark International Design Competition that recognizes product innovation and beauty.


  • Keeps water sparkling clean.
  • No messy pans to touch or wash.
  • Supports up to 16 chickens.
  • Proximity to the water tank prevents birds from perching on top.
  • Works for baby chicks, chickens, ducks, and other small fowl.
  • Clear plastic design and clean-out plugs make cleaning the interior a snap.
  • Doesn't rust like metal waterers.
  • Set up is easy, fast and doesn't require special tools or skills.
  • Easily attaches to Rubbermaid and Igloo brand water coolers that act as the water supply tank.
Create Your Own Customized Waterer

The BriteTap Waterer can be attached to a wide variety of plastic containers that act as the water supply tank.

  • Use a Rubbermaid or Igloo brand water cooler. Just unscrew the cooler spigot and replace it with the BriteTap waterer. Works on standard 2, 3, 5 and 10 gallon models.
  • Purchase a BriteTap Combo Pack that includes a BriteTap and a 2-gallon cooler.
  • Make your own waterer using a plastic pitcher, bucket or other food grade plastic container. Just drill and hole into the side of the container.
  • The BriteTap waterer comes with all the hardware you'll need to attach it to a water supply tank. For more information see the "Extended Information" tab at the top of this page.

Easier to water our chickens April 16, 2014
Reviewer: VICTORIA Goatcher from HEREFORD, AZ United States  
We got 2 water coolers and turned them into your great water containers. The water stays cleaner and the chickens really like it.

Brite tap chicken water April 16, 2014
Reviewer: Celeste ward from dexter, GA United States  
I have really enjoyed our chicken waterer. Our flock has taken to it quite quickly. It was easy to install and I really enjoy knowing that they have fresh, clean water. Celeste, happy customer from Georgia.

Love this! April 16, 2014
Reviewer: from Ashland, Virginia  
This has put so much ease in providing clean water to my chickens. Before getting the waterer I had to change the water at least 3 times a day and still could keep water clean. Now I fill the waster cooler and just check to see when I need to add water. The chickens adjusted quickly to getting their water from tapping, within 30 minutes. Thinking about getting a second one for my ducks!  So glad my animals can have clean water!!

Chicken Waterer is a great addition! April 15, 2014
Reviewer: Angel from OH United States  
We have 22 free range chickens and have always used the normal watering containers (red bottom, white top).  Our boys do all the chicken chores and DAILY they would come back in and say, "Gotta refill, mom.  It broke open... or it spilled...or it's all yucky already."  They LOVE this product.  We fill up our 5 gall igloo every two days and it stays clean and fresh and doesn't dump out!  It has made their life easier and I know the chickens love it too.  We have a small Coleman thermos in the coop and the larger one outside.  It took them a little bit of time to figure it out (2-3 days), but now they seem to get it.  

Only drawback I would say is that the plastic isn't as durable as I might like.  Due to high winds yesterday (45-50 mph) our large cooler was blown over and the device about cracked off.  It didn't because it fell on soft grass, but I can see it happening, so make sure your cooler is tied down properly.

CHICKENWATERER RESPONSE: Hi Angel, Your advice to other owners is sound. It would be a good idea for owners to secure the cooler so it can withstand the extreme weather you mentioned. The BriteTap is made of plastic that is 300 times stronger than glass. This same type of plastic is used in windshields on motorcycles and is very strong. The key issue is that water weighs 9 pounds per gallon. If you're cooler falls from a height of a few feet with 9-45 pounds of water in it and strikes the BriteTap head on, it puts enormous strain on it. Sometimes it survives. Sometimes not. Securing it, is a good idea.

Works great! April 14, 2014
Reviewer: Pamela Tidd from Fort Bragg, CA United States  
I attached the waterer to a ceramic water jug. One chicken started drinking immediately and the rest took awhile to get going. But they are all still alive so I'm sure they are all drinking. It sure is nice to have clean water.
