Farm Innovators Heated Poultry Fount, 3 gal. is rated 2.1212 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works but no fun to use! I own 2 of these but only because they keep the water from freezing and there doesn't seem to be many other options out there. I read the reviews before I purchased the first. Believe what 99% of the people are saying, they are telling the truth. It works well, even at single digit temps, but is very difficult to handle. I fill through the plug hole on the bottom. Even a gallon puts almost too much stress on the flimsy tabs connecting base to reservoir. They will easily slip apart and seperate when carried or when flipped over. You WILL get wet at some point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps water from freezing. Used for three years ... still in great working condition. Don't bother to use the plug on bottom to re-fill, simply take it apart so I can give it a rinse. In general there is not a big selection of available heated chicken water containers I do so wish there were an easier filling option ... similar to Harris Farm Easy Fill. I also experienced occasional challenge some of 1 star raters did regarding complete spillage - it's not that the plastic is weak; in trouble shooting I figured it's the power cord and how/if it's held while turning over it can pull/twist off the bottom; it can occur if you are holding the cord too tight or if your turning the container over aggressively like flipping/swinging it over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does EXACTLY what it is supposed to do Daily use of product for almost 2 years. Durable, never a problem. As every reviewer prior has said, (even 1 stars???) keeps water from freezing. Has kept water in liquid state in coop when outdoor temps have hit -12 F. I find this very easy to clean and fill. (I am curious as to what technique is being employed by 1 star reviewers that results in their purported spillage.) I disassemble and clean, then reassemble, invert and fill. I carry the fount to the coop inverted, open the coop, flip the fount upright, hang it from a chain to get it off the bedding layer, and plug it in. I work a lot of 24-hour shifts and I like knowing that my chickens have the water they need, despite the cold. The low average rating this product has received might discourage some purchasers but I have found this fount to do exactly what it is supposed to do and do it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tips for Filling and Using 1. With the unit unplugged and the reservoir empty, securely fasten the reservoir and tabs into the slots on the red base. 2. Put a small piece of sponge into the rectangular opening near the bottom of the reservoir. This helps to minimize water spillage when turning unit right-side up. 3. Turn unit upside down and place on level ground. 4. Remove rubber stopper from hole on bottom and fill reservoir maybe 80% full. Replace rubber plug. 5. With one hand placed on the bottom of the red base and the other hand on the top of the reservoir near the handle, carefully turn the unit right-side up and place it back on the ground. If you need to then transport it to the coop, it’s best to support the bottom of the unit with your hand as you carry it to the coop. 6. Remove sponge. 7. Plug unit in.
