The Soda Bottle Bird Bath did not work as a hanging bird bath for me, until I modified it. The supplied hanging system made it unbalanced. It wobbled, would not hang level, and the water sloshed out--all because the weight was outside the area of support. I had to make 3 equally spaced holes around the outer plastic rim using a heated icepick, then inserted hooks and used three equal lengths of lightweight chain held together at the top with a keyring, and hung the bird bath on an S-hook and then a long hanger.
It's hanging about 4' off the ground, and now the birds love it. I threw out the plastic hanger.
I suggest you redesign the hanging system.
