    I'm trying to come up with a simple automatic watering system, but am not the most handy so wondering if something like the following would work: Elevated 5 gallon bucket with tubing leading to PVC that has rabbit nipples attached. I'd run the pvc between the backs of the cages, so in theory I only need one piece of PVC per row. I can't find any plans for something similar on-line. Is it possible to directly attache the nipples to the PVC or do I need some sort of transition? Anyone have something like this? Thanks!

    Yes, that is very doable however you have to think about freezing whether and the PVC bursting because of it. I don't know where you're from or if that'll be a problem in your area. Also, I would make sure the nipples are slanted at at least a 45° angle.
    Just my 2¢
