Read my recent article for Countryside Magazine on how to make a nipple waterer for pigs out of PVC pipe. This design allows them to have a constant supply of fresh water without dirtying it up or trying to wallow in it! The design can easily be adapted as well for different sized PVC piping, or if you choose to go with a single stack unit as opposed to a double.
We will certainly be on the lookout for larger sized PVC on the cheap on local Craigslist ads so we can make another one of these with larger capacity. For now, the 4" double stacked waterer works just fine and the 8 gallon capacity is sufficient for the smaller feeder pigs! Happy building!
