Poultry Nipple Ten Pack For DIY Bucket & PVC Chicken Waterer Projects

  • Ten (10) poultry nipples for use in DIY chicken waterer projects.
  • Can also be used to replace the poultry valves in the BriteTap Chicken waterer.

Poultry Nipple Construction

  • Made of sturdy Polyacetal thermoplastic and stainless steel.
  • Poultry nipples disassemble for easy cleaning and removal of mineral build up.

How To Properly Install Poultry Nipples

  • Drill a hole using a 23/64" (9mm) drill bit.
  • If installing into PVC pipe, an optional step that improves the fit of the BriteTap poultry nipple is to tap the hole using a standard 1/8" - 27 threads per inch NPT (National Pipe Thread) tap. To do this, draill a 11/32" pilot hole and then tap to create the threads.
  • Wrap the threads on the top of the poultry nipple with 2-3 turns of plumbers tape (Also called Teflon tape). This is sold in hardware and plumbing supply stores.
  • Insert the poultry nipple into the hole and tighten using your hand or a wrench.

Poultry Nipple Usage

  • Install poultry nipple on low-pressure tank fed systems. Do not attach directly to high-pressure main water supply lines or garden hoses.
  • Use one poultry nipple for every 8 birds in your flock. Use a minimum of two nipples regardless of flock size to provide a back up if one poultry nipple should clog.
  • You do not need nuts to fasten poultry nipples to your water supply tank.
  • Poultry nipples can be use for baby chicke, chickens, ducks, guineas and other small fowl.

Poultry Nipples September 17, 2014
Reviewer: Susan from CONCEPTION HARBOUR, NL Canada  
Great service. Got a little frustrated figuring out the order and decided to wait til another time but it all got sorted out on the backend, an invoice came, I paid it, and the waterers arrive very quickly.
They are an excellent product. I don't know how I survived with out them, especially with chicks.

Poultry watering nipples September 8, 2014
Reviewer: Michael R Eaton from Galt, CA United States  
They work very well and it didn't take the girls long to figure them out. I designed my own setup - a rectangular cooler with automatic valve inside feeds a length of 1.25" PVC with the nipples threaded in. Improvised bulkhead fittings manage the transitions in and out. Since my chickens vary significantly in height I ended up modifying with a couple of ells that drop the pipe 4" at the 3/4 point.

Poultry Nipples April 23, 2014
Reviewer: Trevor from Leduc, AB Canada  
I'm very pleased with these waterers -- they work great and don't leak.  They come with good instructions on how to drill and thread PVC pipe for an extra secure fit.  Also, there was no duty on these coming in to Canada because the company correctly filled in all the import class information.  Thank you!
