One of my chores at home is to feed and water my 4-H chickens, a total of 17 chickens in my chicken coop. It is important that I clean their water daily because algae can build in their water, and algae can make them sick. I want to avoid scrubbing algae daily. Therefore, I engineered a self-cleaning water tank.

One thought on “AUTOMATIC WATERER WITH SELF-CLEANING CAPABILITY

  1. Great way to build something that will help with your chores and the chickens health! I think your end goal/achievement was successful and the different iterations proved that you thought about the process. I bet your chickens are really happy and are continuing to be healthy! Good job with the iteration process! Did you know flowing water through a UV light can also help with algae growth? This is commonly used in cooling systems that use water where algae could impact the cooling capabilities. Perhaps you can continue to build on your awesome invention for your chickens and integrate some UV light in the system!

    Fantastic job! Keep up the great work and the care for your chickens!
