Default Auto feed for turkey fryer pot

[/IMG]I set up an auto feed for a turkey fryer pot using a water cooler jug. I bought a rubber stopper to fit the jug and drilled a hole in it to fit a piece of copper tubing. I hooked a piece of flexible tubing to it and another piece of copper tube. Then made a hanger to support tube in pot. As the level in the pot drops air is sucked back into jug releasing sap.
Some liquid is sucked back in also that is why the jug color is brown in pictures. It worked quite well and would go an hour or so between fillings.
There are more pics in my photo gallery
