The key component to any automated watering system is the valve. Selecting a reliable drinking valve is the most important decision you will make. The drinking valve should operate consistently,at a wide range of pressures, and provide access to fresh water without flooding the cage. Systems Engineering led the industry by introducing the first cage mounted drinking valve in 1989. The L-2000 valve is the industry’s only bedding-resistant drinking valve.

The L-2000 valve is autoclavable and works from .5 to 20 psi. Because of its spring loaded stem, you will not experience spontaneous leaking due to pressure fluctuations in your distribution system. This allows the drinker to work under micro pressure or gravity. A carboy can be placed on top of the rack to supply emergency water.
