Household pets and farm animals alike need access to fresh drinking water at all times. Lixit water nipples offer a safe, clean, and convenient method for watering dogs, pigs, goats, sheep, and more. The self-service waterer works by releasing water only when the animal licks the control lever; the water shuts off as soon as the animal stops licking. In order to avoid water waste, the amount of water released from the control lever can be regulated using one of the included orifice discs. Water pressure can be adjusted from 5psi to 100psi. The Lixit L-70 screws directly onto standard 1/2-inch pipe fittings and can be installed horozontally or tilted at a 45-degree angle.
Installation: Apply thread sealant and install your water nipple tilted downwardly in a 1/2" pipe filling about shoulder high to the animal. Adjustable Water Flow: Before installing, remove filter screen and preset the desired water flow by inserting the appropriate flow control orifice. Use without an orifice for under 10 psi pressure; use the large hole orifice for 10-60 psi pressure; use small hole orifice if over 60 psi pressure. Animal Training: Remove all available water, then show the installed water nipple to the animal by moving the nipple control and letting water trickle out. Most animals will immediately start sniffing, nuzzling, and licking the hollow, water-filled nipple control and learn to drink from it. If not, wait until animal is thirsty and demonstrate again. During the waiting period, leave the nipple loosely attached so water will seep past the threads and slowly drip. The dripping water will attract the animal back to the nipple for self training. Tighten securely when training is assured. 5-Year Warranty.
