Ritchie Introduces the new Stall Fount II

Stall fount II automatic watererConrad, Iowa (March 14, 2012)—Ritchie Industries, the leading manufacturer of automatic watering fountains, has released a newly designed corner mount option to the Stall Fount Series. The automatic horse waterer is wall-mounted and delivers fresh, clean water to horses using Ritchie’s time proven valve for rapid refill.

The new Stall Fount II series offers a fully insulated casing and stainless steel design. The new design eliminates chewing with its stainless steel rounded cover and offers smooth, rounded edges for the horse’s safety. The removable cover allows full access to the trough and valve for easy cleaning and maintenance. In addition, the new Stall Fount II is available in heated and non-heated versions. If freeze protection is needed, the Stall Fount II 125 adds a 125-watt trough heater and supply line heat cable. An optional insulated shroud, which is available in two lengths, is available to provide protection from freezing and animal damage to an exposed supply line. The shroud can be added to the standard Stall Fount II to cover water supply lines.

“I only trust the best to provide for my horses, which is why I installed Ritchie fountains at the Downunder Horsemanship Ranch. The quality craftsmanship and durable construction of its products can’t be matched. Recently, I’ve been exceptionally pleased with the new Stall Fount II. It has a sleek design, is easy-to-clean and its industry-leading construction gives me peace of mind knowing my horses are receiving top care.”  commented Clinton Anderson of Downunder Horsemanship.

The Stall Fount II has a capacity of 1 gallon of water with a refill rate of 1.45 gallons a minute. It carries a 10-year warranty against manufacturing defects or corrosion. It is now available through Ritchie distributors nationwide and online at RitchieEquine.com.
