many decades of owning, training, and caring for horses, we saw the need for a
new kind of automatic animal watering device. We wanted a device that would be
durable, long lasting, and simple to install, so we developed the TEXAS SUPERIOR
The Texas Superior Animal Waterer is a watering device unlike any other on the market. It has only one moving part: the float. The float is configured in a fixed location, functions to maintain a constant water level within the waterer and operates without needing to be adjusted. The functionality of the float maintains the water level at a depth of approximately 2½” from the bottom of the water box, which consists of approximately 1.239 gallons of water. This water level is constant due to the float’s operation and cannot be changed. The watering device also has a very rapid refill rate, thereby allowing an animal to drink continuously until satisfied. It has the capability to receive an incoming water flow at a rate of approximately 200 to 240 gallons per hour (gph), and an incoming water pressure ranging from approximately 20 psi to 50 psi. Water enters the watering device through a ¾” female garden hose connection. The sides of the water box are configured at a height that is well above the fixed water level maintained by the float, thereby limiting the ability of an animal to splash water out, which is a major problem with many waterers available in today’s market.
The Texas Superior Animal Waterer is constructed of 316 stainless steel and requires little to no maintenance other than routine cleaning. Water may be drained from the watering device through a ¾” female pipe threaded coupling mounted in the center of the bottom portion of the water box. This centralized drainage location allows for quick draining and also creates a small vortex that allows for most of the debris that may accumulate at the bottom of the device to be evacuated. We suggest adding a ball valve to this coupling to facilitate the cleaning process.
