Cheap Hog Waterer
"Last spring my son's 4-H pigs got sick and the vet recommended medicating their water for several days. This was a problem since they were on an automatic water fountain," says David D. Writsel, Washington, Ohio, who solved the problem by putting together a temporary stand-alone waterer.
"I bought a nipple waterer and drilled out the restricter. I screwed the nipple into the small hole of a rinsed-out 55-gal. drum, then hung the empty drum from the rafters of the barn from wires wrapped around either end of the barrel. I filled the drum with medicated water through the large fill hole on one end of the barrel.
"For less than $10 I came up with a 50 gal. hog waterer."
