Deluxe Solar Sipper Wild Bird water station invented for animals by Thomas Hollyday in 1985
The best selling Deluxe Solar Sipper Model 10008 with its 1 ½ inch opening continues to find fans. That’s because it is a unique and useful product. It has the features that count for wild birds.
(1)It is portable and tough and much better than an open dish or birdbath for drinking.
(2) It uses passive solar to heat its water. That means that expensive solar cells are not used to convert heat to electricity to run heaters. Instead it directly radiates the heat from a dark surface to the water that the surface covers. It’s simple, inexpensive, and efficient in attracting radiant heat in the same way as black solar pipes placed on a roof in sunlight heat house water every day.
(3) It is competitive to electric powered drinkers in its temperature range
(4) It operates in sunlight when animals range outside and like to drink.
(5) It has no wires for animals like chickens to peck or chew.
(6) Operating to about 20 deg. F in winter, it doesn’t allow birds to freeze parts of their bodies like feathers or beaks as can happen with too hot open water being provided in frigid temperatures.
(7)It covers the water to keep out bacteria.
(8) Its cover keeps wind from cooling the water surface,
(9) It has air space insulation from its three part construction.
(10) Unlike electric waterers, it is useful in all seasons, working to cool water in summer, heat in winter.
(11) It is specialized as a drinker instead of a birdbath so birds cannot bathe in it
(12) It fits in well with your daily schedule of providing clean water and food to your pets. The days of filling the birdbath and forgetting it for a week are over with all the pollution and bacteria around.
Your outside pets and wildlife deserve what your indoor pets expect every morning.
Check out our recent test videos of these Solar Sipper units 10040, 10008, and the dog or commercial version Solar Sipper 10011 in operation on YouTube. These videos show backyard weather down to 20 degrees F. with some clouds and light wind compromising the sunlight. The Solar Sippers consistently stayed ice free even though an open water dish froze solid.
