1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

In time, I'm told, all good things must end.

I have an old watering bowl that accepts 5 gal (home delivery style) 'jug'.  I bought it several years ago, probably at WalMart <??>  Originally it came with a 4 gal jug - just like the home delivery types, just smaller.

The waterer I have now has cracked ... and all the water runs out (I'll try super glue, but that's a patch if it works at all).

Amazon, Chewy, WalMart, PetSmart, PetCo, TSC all have the same type - that require the use of their jug.  Ain't going that way, with our winds those just end up on the ground (off the porch) all too often and I'm not buying one every couple of months.

Is anyone aware of an automatic dog watering station that will accept a standard (5 gal) home delivery water jug??

I have spent the last day hunting around thinking surely there has to be something out there, and there might still be but I couldn't find it either. Seems DIY might be your only shot. Of the DIY ideas this one seemed the easiest.

Seems silly there isn't something out there, but might have more luck looking for livestock waters. Might be something out there that would be large enough and capable of screwing on. Not really sure.

Thanks for looking, Jenn. The one I have was designed for a replaceable jug so I was surprised that I couldn't find anything now.

Super glue has taken it from a stream to a couple of drops a minute - if that - but I know that's only a temporary fix. As I was glueing it, I was looking for anything that would identify it - manufacturer, etc - but no such luck.

While this one looks appealing, sorry guys, I'm not spending US$235 for a watering bowl!

I'm taking a fellow resident (lives a few miles down the road) up to Alpine on Monday, I may take a side trip up to Ft Stockton (Big City ) and see what I can find at the real brick and mortar stores there.
