I like that. I don't have electricity in the Pig Palace, I just use a blue barrel and a hog nipple. We just raise feeder pigs, so can choose what weather we want to be out there taking care of pigs. Videos are hard for me to watch, my internet is sketchy, but I liked what you posted.

Virginia is for Pasture Farmers!
So you suck on one end to get the siphon going, yeah? Do the nipples eventually wear out and put out too much air and stop the flow or?
Will you cover the tank and insulate the pipes?

It is all ran by a small pond pump. Never had an issue with the nipples. The shut off valve is to add pressure to the nipples so they shut off when pigs stop drinking.
