He did find this........A wall mounted drinking fountain in perfect condition.
with the hanging bracket.....
R thinks he can hang it outside and plumb it with PEX or clear tubing that he can remove for the winter. Rather than plumb it with a drain we decided on two options. The first option is to do nothing and just place a pail underneath it to catch the water. Then use that to water the plants. The second option is to attach a section of garden hose and direct the water to shrubs etc.
The drinking fountain has been placed in the barn for future installation along with a hundred other projects.
