The Lapp Energy-Free Drinker by Eagle Plastics, LLC No electricity, built to last, The Lapp Energy-Free Drinker by Eagle Plastics, LLC will ensure your horses, cows, goats and other livestock get plenty of clean, cool, water, and all Energy Free!
Our Company History... Lapp Energy-Free Drinkers has been a family owned and operated business since the mid 1980’s. Founder Alvin Lapp, a farm raised Lane, PA native, began with a sharpening and fiberglass business but always enjoyed inventing new products. The first drinkers were made of fiberglass until he perfected his design, including the ball baffle, but Alvin wasn’t satisfied with it and continued to improve upon his and others designs. As a result Alvin began hand making single wall molds to manufacture his drinkers using plastic and developed the Lapp Energy-Free Drinker Thermacap Baffle pad design. To this day the free floating pad and bucket design is safe and effective for sheep, calves, deer, colts, horses and larger livestock.
Who Runs Eagle Plastics, LLC , Makers of Lapp Energy Free Horse Drinkers, Now? Alvin’s sonsNathan and Andrew Lapp, who worked closely with their father for many years, now oversee the daily operations of Lapp Energy-Free Drinkers and feel blessed with the business their loving father left them after his passing. “We pay close attention to the quality of all of our products; our goal is to offer our customers the best quality products. We always look for ways to improve upon them where possible to ensure our energy free drinkers will function flawlessly in any weather condition, and have always great things we are working on every year.

Easy Installation Instructions:
1.Pour concrete slab on top of ground – minimum 24” wide x 33” long x 4” thick. In the off center of concrete slab leave a hole 10” x 10” to bring underground water line up through.
2.For best results – use a 10-14" diameter plastic, or corrugated, pipe. (Pipe should be 18” below bottom frost line), leave this hole open for water line and air space.
Note:Do not allow concrete to be in contact with water supply line.
3.Insulate around pipe with Reflectix unfaced reflective roll insulation, or equivalent. This will keep the cold and frost from getting under drinker, having 45-48F., underground air temperature rising into drinker year round keeps drinker from freezing in winter and cooler on hot summer days.
4.Fasten ‘L’ brackets to drinker with short bolts in four (4) corners.
5.Set drinker on concrete slab – drill 3/8” holes for brackets into concrete slab. Before fastening drinker to slab, put a layer of silicone caulk on ALL surfaces inside and out that contact concrete slab.
Very Important:Seal with heavy bead of silicone caulk all around top of underground hole, and around outside of drinker to seal out cold.
6.Install 3/4" plastic pipe coming to drinker, leave approximately 10” of pipe sticking out from the top of your concrete base.
Option:Use a 12” to 14” PVC Drain Pipe underground instead of insulated box: Purchase 1/2" Arm-a-Flex (closed cell foam) from your local plumber and glue to inside of pipe, leaving 3/4" sticking out of the top for a sealing gasket.
Note:Do not use any steel pipe.Do not allow concrete or pipe to be in contact with water supply line. Pipe clamps & caulking not included.
