Energy Free Frost-Protected Ball Waterers

How does a ball waterer operate?

Water comes from the ground at a temperature of about 10 °C and fills the drinking containers until the balls seal off the drinking holes. Whenever animals drink, the float valve allows the consumed water to be replaced. The energy of the replacement water flowing in keeps the water warm when it is cold, and cool when it is hot. By means of the special ball-valve system, and without any additional power requirements, fresh, clean water which is free from algae, is provided at both -30 °C as well as +30 °C.

  • While the animal is drinking, the ball rolls away
  • Water supply must come from below frost level
  • Water pressure: 1 to 5 bars
  • A minimum of 5 animals guarantees frost-free operation down to -15 °C, or with 15 animals down to -40 °C
  • Prepared for connection to 1/2” water line
  • The ball waterer should be positioned, slightly raised, on a 15 cm thick concrete platform, each side of which is 30 cm wider than the drinker itself
  • Large drain openings allow regular, quick and complete cleaning of the trough
  • Capacity 71 l
  • 25 - 40 animals
  • Water flow: 25 l / min at 5 bar
  • 1/2" hookup with flexible tube, l = 30 cm, IG/IG


  • Simple and easy draining to the side
  • Easy float adjustment, fixing possible
