How do you make a trough for tire water?

Building a tire watering trough is simple. “Have your water line and drain or overflow where you want the tank, you flop the tire over it, pack any extra area with dirt to fill in, and leave about 4”-5” for quikcrete. We put the quikcrete in dry, put about half of it in and tamp it good and do that again.

The ballcock or trough valve is the bit that prevents overflow. The traditional version is a float (the ball) on a lever attached to a valve on the inlet pipe. When the ball is floating near the top of the trough, the lever holds the inlet valve closed and no water enters the trough.
