An automated watering system is the sensible, sanitary way to provideplenty of fresh water to your stock. The interchangeable Nivek system components make up a simple-to-install system for small stock operations of any size. The "Snap" bracket and trouble free Nivek fount are at the heart of the system. By eliminating the major constraint of hand watering, Nivek allows you to spend more time raising healthy stock.
Set Up Information:The fount is designed to be used with the snap bracket and attached to the cage. The fount requires reduced pressure in the range of zero to 4l lbs per square inch (PSI). It will not work on household pressure which is typically in the range of 25 or more PSI. To reduce pressure use either the pressure reducing tank which feeds by gravity or the pressure regulator.
Troubleshooting Tips:Founts should be cleaned periodically to remove scale or hard water build up. Depending on the hardness of the water, this is typically done once every one or two years. Simply place the founts in a container of apple cider vinegar overnight. Rinse well, and put back into service.
If a fount is dripping from the tip, there could be a small particle lodged on the O-ring. Simply disassemble the fount, rinse well and reassemble. Using a good quality micronic filter such as the Nivek Filter unit.
