Question Drippers?

Hey all question for you.... (mods if this is the wrong place to post please move it for me.)
I was wondering if anyone has made a home made dripper for their herps? If they have could you let me know how and what I would need? I have a general idea but would like to know for sure.
Thanks in advance,
Kim

only one I ever made was a soda bottle with a pin hole burned in the bottom. Would 3/4 fill it with water then freeze it, after would set it on the enclosure and and it would slowly drip as it thawed

The old pail with a pinhole has worked for years in my herp room. If you want to get fancy you can use a gravity or pump operated system with a horticultural drip emitter. You can pick them up for pocket change at your local hydroponic supplier. Most allow for drip rate adjustments and last almost forever.

Well because the herp store is really far away and I thought why spend 12 bucks when I can make one for free I have 4 kids and a million reptiles to pay for I need to save where I can LOL
Ok so basically just a pop bottle or a bucket with a hole in it?

i use an aquarium air hose adapter that has the valve on it. i poke a small hole about 1/4" from the bottom on the side of a deli cup and carefully squeeze the valve into the deli. I use an aquarium silicone just to seal around the valve, and voila, mine have all worked for years. You can use the valve too for water drip speed which works out well. Good luck.

I took a large yogurt container and poked holes on the top. I then fill it 3/4 with water and put it in the freezer. It drips pretty slow but you'd need to refill it every day.
