Installation tips : )
You can use a step drill bit or a spade wood drill bit but with both be careful on how much force is applied.
A good measurement for installing your float system is to measure between 4-6 inches depending on how much water you want at one time and the weight of the bucket itself if you going to have it suspended in the air.
In the colder winter months, you can add a small water heater that you can get from most pet stores to keep your animals water from freezing.
A quick way to sterilize your system and keep you birds in good health is to use a capful of apple cider vinegar. (1 oz to 1 gal of water)
