Water cooler By Retired

Purchased two of these watering devices. The jugs became brittle and broke after the first year being out in the sun. No birds were ever seen at them even though we had a brutally hot summer. Was a total waste of money for me.

waste of $$$$ By AzBuffalogal

I have had this waterer for a year and , honestly I've seen only 1 bird at it. It must have been a fluke to have 3 birds at it for the picture. I do have bird baths and the birds love those. I wish I hadn't spent the money on it as it was a waste----I'm a retired public school teacher so don't have a lot to spare.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative


Thank you for providing this feedback! We apologize the desired results were not seen and have shared this information with our Product Managers. If given a choice, a bird will go to a feeder/waterer that they are comfortable with rather than a new item in their environment. We recommend temporarily removing the bird baths to help aid the transition.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any questions or for additional assistance.

good waterer By sandra

had this waterer for a year now, took the birds about a month to figure out what it was but after that they really took to it. i hang mine just a inch or two from the top for my fence so the bigger birds can also drink. left this waterer out over the winter and still held up great.

No birds seen. By BG Ohio

Built good enough but have not seen a bird use it in a two week period.

Response From Woodstreambrands
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We are sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to provide assistance.

Since birds are creatures of habit, it can take some time for them to become accustomed to a new source of food or water.  A location closer to certain feeders or sheltered areas may help the birds to get used to the new waterer.

Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-PERKYPET (1-855-737-5973) with any additional questions.

AWESOME waterer! :) By Carol

This is such a UNIQUE item--can't wait to use it! Received two of these for compensation re a previous order (via Walmart) that fell a bit short (purchased a deluxe bird feeder that was missing three seed ports). HOWEVER, after I contacted the manufacturer (Woodstream Corp.) re such, they bent over backwards and went the extra mile to correct their mistake. AMAZING products as well as customer service! :) :) :)
