Inspired by our dog, Tex, this Waterer was designed to keep water fresh and cool in the heat of summer. The turbulence caused by the nozzle prevents algae buildup and mosquito growth which is better for your animal’s health. It also helps prevent water from freezing in the winter.
You can use Cowboy’s Self-Cleaning Pet and Livestock Waterer manually or attach it to a water timer for periodic filling and flushing. Attach to a drain hose to direct overflow to your trees or shrubs.
The Waterer provides your animals with access to clean, fresh water all day long. Your pets or animals will be healthier and better hydrated.
When attached to a timer and adjusted properly, the Waterer:
- Eliminates the need for daily cleaning (may need to remove large debris, leaves)
- Flushes debris and replenishes water
- Keeps water cool in the heat of the day while you are away
- Circulates water to reduce or eliminate freezing in cold weather
- Significantly reduces or eliminates algae
- Eliminates mosquito larva
- Eliminates smell from stagnant water
- Reduces risk of illnesses caused by stagnant or contaminated water
- Conserves and reduces water usage
- Drained water can be routed to flower beds, shrubs or trees by attaching a drain hose to the rear of the pail
(a 3′ drain hose is included with purchase)
The reduced spray head only allows 2–4 gallons of water flow per minute (average unrestricted water hose flow is 12 GPM).
Running the Waterer for 3 minutes to flush and clean the pail will use about 12 gallons of water compared to 36 gallons if you run a standard hose for that same time.

Frequently Asked Questions
How is this different from my normal water bowl?
This is a self-cleaning pet and livestock waterer. It connects to a garden hose on the side of your house and has a specially-designed, reduced fitting that sprays water along the bottom. As the water rises it flushes all the debris up off of the bottom and it goes out of the drain. You can connect it to a timer and have it come on 2-3 times each day to give your pets or animals fresh water and clean the bowl on a regular basis.
What types of animals can I water with this product?
This waterer is a 20-qt pail and is about 12 inches tall. It is ideal for pets and small to medium-sized livestock. It is great for dogs, goats, sheep, pigs and other medium-sized animals.
How does the self-cleaning feature work?
The pail attaches to a standard water hose, but because the nozzle on the inside is reduced, the water enters the pail at a high rate of speed, creating turbulence that helping to clean the pail and flush debris out of the drain. Regular washing of the bowl will still be required, but this nozzle will reduce the amount of algae buildup compared to a normal water bowl.
Can I water my horses or cows with this product?
This waterer is probably too small for broad use with large animals, but you might be able to fasten the pail to a post or inside a stable to water a single horse. The concern would be to keep the pail from getting knocked over and keeping it filled when watering large livestock.
How does this product save water?
This product will reduce the water usage whenever watering your pets. Average water pressure is about 10-12 gallons per minutes. The designed fitting in the bottom is reduced so you don’t have to turn your water on very high. You just barely crack the water faucet open and it will create strong turbulence while putting out somewhere between 2.5 to 3 gallons per minute.
What are some benefits of the Pet & Livestock Waterer?
There are numerous benefits to this Pet & Livestock Waterer, Once it kicks on, it will fill the pail and flush out any debris off the bottom.

Is the water timer included?
No, the water timer is an optional accessory and is not included. The waterer can be used with or without a timer. If you’d like, you can attach a water timer to your faucet to automate the watering process and set the frequency according to fit your animal’s needs.

Is a drain hose included?
