The cover on the DuraMate automatic waterers prevents a thorough cleaning of the unit, you have to take it apart to bleach that area. I want something that can be lifted off the pipe panel, cleaned and easily reinstalled, yet won’t get torn down by the horses.
It would be a miniature version of the water tanks on the Virginia Range.
