Should be better I don’t know why I keep buying these, but the owner of my feed store says they’re still better than the plastic ones. If you baby them you can get a couple of years out of them, but that’s about it and they seem way to simple and expensive to only last that long. 2 important issues to recognize;1. These are not hanging waterers and2. Don’t even move much by the handle on the outside cover.There are two handles, one inside and one outside. The cover locks into a rivet at the bottom, and if you lift it by the handle on the cover all of the weight of the water is put on the rivet causing it to bend and fail. Hanging from the outside handle will only speed this process.Even with that problem addressed they still fail to hold the vacuum seal over time and releases the contents. The galvanization quality is poor as well and they will rust.It kills me when a simple product is designed to perform one simple function and in time it doesn’t…

Leaked.. That thing leaked all over my coop, no matter if it was leveled or not. The bottom seal was the problem , I resealed it with aquarium silicone (safe for food) and now it keeps water. I did not want to go thru returning and paying for shipping so I fixed it. I should have made one myself. Seller did send me shipping fee back to my account for my trouble.

exactly what it is. Very easy to fill and clean, however durring winter if not kept warm freezing breaks the seal and a new one is needed.
