Steve Says:

We sell a lot of the Nelson Automatic Dog Waterers. It's a very popular product for us even though it's a little on the expensive side. Nelson is the high-end of the dog waterers.

The low end of the waterers that we sell are plastic, and I am never a big fan of a plastic bowl for a dog. It is just something to chew on. That is one of the things you have got to look at and decide, "I have a chewer or I don't have a chewer." You don't have to worry about your dog chewing on the Nelson 1200B because it's built out of stainless steel.

The Nelson Automatic waterers require you to have a water connection that is close to where you mount it.

Here's how it works: As the dog drinks the water down, the float drops to a certain level and it automatically refills. It's pretty neat.

The biggest fear that I have with this type of product is that it doesn't eliminate the need for keeping an eye on your dog. I wouldn't recommend leaving for two weeks and leaving it hooked up in case something happened. Although you don't have to worry about your dog's water getting low, it's always a good idea to check your dog on a daily basis to make sure everything is in working order and your dog is properly hydrated. A dog cannot go long without water in the summer time before getting heat stroke or dying.

The other thing you have got to watch on automatic dog waterers is cleaning them. Depending on where you place your waterer, you are going to get some algae. If it is in the sun at all you are going to get fast algae build up. If you keep it out of the sun and clean it once a week, most folks ought to be in good shape. Bleach kills algae probably faster than anything, but you can kill it with soap too. It's not a big deal.

We have very, very few returns on the Nelson 1200B because they are nice, stout products.

"The automatic waterer assures my Lab has access to essential water whenever he desires"

By: Stephen From TX

Labrador Retriever. Hunts. Competes.
The Nelson Dog Waterer's quality is evident in the construction and design of this unit. The multiple mounting options should fit everyone's needs and will withstand the environmental conditions for many, many years. The automatic waterer assures my Lab has access to essential water whenever he desires... and in the heat of Texas a hard working dog can and should consume lots of water to remain hydrated and healthy. Knowing he has access to clean water anytime of the day or night reassure me I'm doing everything I can for my dog since he works so tirelessly for me in the field. With the convenience offered by this unit, there also comes a responsibility to make sure you clean and maintain it to assure the constant supply of clean water to your canine. Maintenance is minimal, just a visual inspection each time you clean out the environmental debris which accumulates from normal use.

"I can't wait to install this product."

I ordered this product because of all the great reviews I read about it online after seeing it in a photo on Houzz.com. I liked the idea of this so much I am incorporating it into our new mud room/entrance area in our house reno project. While I am pretty good at remembering to fill the dogs water dishes, there are times I forget. I can't wait to install this product. I'm already thinking of adding one outdoors too!

"this is a great product"

By: Trang Klotzbach From NY

Owns 2 dogs. Family pet.
As everyone else has commented, this is a great product, and I'm very happy with it. If I had 1 nit-pick, it would be with the use of 2 nuts to hold the screws in place for the quick release mechanism. When you remove the pan for cleaning, the screws are now loose, and the nuts easily move. The manufacturer should use a locking nut (nylon plastic on the inside of nut) to prevent the nut from moving. I picked up 2 stainless steel nuts with the nylon inside at a hardware store to fix this issue. Now, when I remove the pan the screws/nuts don't loosen/tighten up.

By: John Pawlak From CA

This is a very nicely made high quality product. There is one problem -- I cannot get the dogs to drink from it. Frustrating --- I am thinking about moving it to another area, isolating the dogs to where they have no choice. At this point, they prefer to drink from another source of inferior water which is the reason I bought the waterer in the first place ---- Regards, John Pawlak. P.S. -- Is there something that I can put in the water that they will like to get them started and then switch back to regular water.

These are great units and make cleaning quick and easy. I actually use them for my alpacas as well as my dogs. I think I have 7 of them currently.

The cost is worth the longevity of the unit. Most waterers break (plastic) or rust out and you have to replace at least annually. These last for years!

Now if I can just see them for 99.00 again, I can buy more!

Thank you

Also, it is nice to know that replacement parts are available (which I doubt I will ever need). I highly recommend this product!

They should be stainless nuts and bolts. I learned this from my old unit and replaced the new bolts with stainless ones from the hardware store. Otherwise, it is a fine unit (this is my 2nd).

Our dogs took right up drinking out of it as soon as my husband installed it. He said it was very simple to install. This has been a great time saver plus I feel better knowing our dogs have fresh water any time they want it. Love it!

I have 1 Labrador Retriever and 3 teacup Chihuahuas. The Nelson automatic dog waterer Installed easily on my stucco walls with not provided concrete screws. I installed it low enough for my teacup chihuahuas to drink from. The unit comes apart easily to clean. After buying the cheap dog waterers I can appreciate the Nelson stainless steel dog waterer.

"Absolutely the best thing I ever did for me and the dogs."

By: Robert Mcleish From CA

Absolutely the best thing I ever did for me and the dogs. No fuss, no muss, always fresh water, No funky bucket and I can leave knowing that they cannot knock over a bucket and be without water. i need to clean it about once a month as far as algae building up on the float and back panel. That's only if they are in the house a lot and it's not being used much. I wash the pan once a week because i have backwash; drinkers that like to rinse their mouths in it. I have even considered putting one inside the house. hooking it up on the wall opposite our water supply for the ice maker. Still thinking about that one. Very fine product that i have had for a very long time and trouble free. I tell everyone about it that has a dog.

Lab/Sheppard Mix. Family pet.
We actually had 2 dogs when this was purchased. It is absolutely awesome. Set it up and you pretty much don't have to worry about your dog being left out without water ever again.

We had a plastic one before that developed a crack in cold weather and we came home to 100s of gallons of water in our yard. With this one, you never have to worry about it.

We've had it for around 5 years and no problems.

So far so good. I just installed it. Had a bit of an issue with getting the brass hose screwed into the plastic valve fitting. I am concerned that I am going to end up with a leak. I am notorious for ending up with metal to plastic fittings that leak. Everything else installed easy enough. Might have been nice to have some wood screws that fit the unit for fastening into the wall since they included the chainlink mountings it wouldn't have taken much to include some wood screws. Nice heavy stainless steel. I was concerned when I ordered it sight unseen but it is definitely as advertised.

By: Constant Companion,LLC Holtwood PA

Shelter Dogs. Owns 8 dogs. Family pet.
Hello Steve,

The first waterer I purchased approxiately 4 years ago. I like it so much, I purchased 2 more. The two most recent purchases do not seem to be machined as accurately as the first. The components do not fit together quite as well as the original purchase.

The waterers are easy to clean, easy to install, have demonstrated longevity, plus provide a constant supply of fresh water to the dogs.

My second full time job is foster mom to shelter dogs in need. I have been fortunate to have fostered around 100 dogs and enjoy fostering pregnant females through delivery. These waterers are great for supplying water to litters of growing puppies. My most recent foster litter had ten puppies and I would not have been able to keep up with the demand for water without this product.

I will be opening a boarding facility in the next 9 months and will be purchasing the new feeders and the waterers to use at my new facility.

Thanks for the inquiry,

It is good with good stainless construction. There are two (2) problems with it: 1. The connector at the end of the float valve should accept a regular garden hose fitting, not that 1/4 inch fitting. The supplied hose was too short, so I had to apply several adapters to fit my garden hose size onto it. 2. It is very expensive; needlessly expensive for what you get. Other than that it works OK.

It has a direct hose connection and I route that out and through the fence as short as possible so that the dogs don't chew on it. The bowl is stainless, rectangular, and mounted via 2 mounting screws (with a sliding tab to make emptying the bowl easy)

Likewise, since the unit is stainless there is no rust (except for a little on the spot-welds that hold the 2 mounting screws in place). These 2 dismount screws make dumping the stainless bowl easy.

I purchased 2 of the units so that I could swap out the bowls periodically -- I clean one while the other one is in-place being used.

For the winter, I put a small dog water bowl heater in the bowl and it keeps things from freezing (it has a built-in thermostat). But I wish that this could be integrated into the bottom of the bowl itself (i.e. not in the water, but connected to the bottom of the bowl). This would be a big improvement.

Also, since this bowl is outside, it does accumulate green "pond scum". But a simple sun shade would probably solve that problem (tried it, but my dogs ate it. A stainless plate would work better).

All-in-all it is a fine product and I have been very happy with its trouble-free performance.

Only thing I don't like is it has a tendency to hang on the bolts that clamp it to a post.

I have 6 of these automatic water bowls at our pet resort. They are easy to install. Note that the short connecting hose is specific to these bowls and another will need to be purchased if it gets chewed on. If you could hook them up directly with a regular hose I would give them 5 stars. Aside from that they have held up very well in a high use environment with a 60-70 dog average per day.

An overflow tray with a drain tie in assembly for indoor installation would be a great option for this product, especially for Canada during winter.

I love the dog waterer, what I dont like it cleaning the dog waterer. The area that holds the filter gets slimy and it is just small enough to allow my hand in there without scraping knuckles.

I initially installed them (2) with water hose and the St Bernard ate the hose, Now PVC. Everything is good. quality construction but would maybe like to have the water tray a little larger. Saves a lot of time watering seven dogs.

Golden Retriever. Family pet.
Waterer provides a consistent supply of fresh water but has required regular attention. I had to order a replacement inlet hose after about one year because of leakage. Stainless steel bowl began developing rust within a year but it is too expensive to replace. Needs frequent (weekly) anti-rust attention (scrubbing and treatment with CLR). Otherwise, it works satisfactorily. I wish the bowl were available in a non-rusting material.

Tends to get mold/algae very quickly since dogs are not drinking enough water to keep water clean and clear.

Needs to be cleaned / scrubbed often.

I should have purchased your alternate bowl which attaches to the garden hose.

I have a conflicted review of this product. I have 4 installed in our dog runs, and 1 installed in our house. They are super easy to clean, and are very durable. However, I'm pretty sure this waterer was involved in the gruesome partial amputation and de-gloving of my dogs middle toe. I'm not sure what happened, but when I came back home the dog was missing her middle toe and the waterer was broken with water flooding our garage. I'm pretty sure she managed to get it stuck/pinched in the device and frantically tried to get it lose, thereby causing an expensive trip to the vet. I ordered spare parts for the product, and fixed it, but am still wary of the continued use without being supervised. I would recommend very careful placement when installing in multiple dog runs, to make sure the dog doesn't get a foot up on it and a toe stuck.

Cannot get it to stop. Water comes in and seems to stop; cannot see or hear that it is running but if I return after an hour or so, water is dripping over the top. Dogs are NOT in the room when this happens. Cannot figure out why it keeps seeping out.
