I use nipple waterer for both the quail and the chickens. If you can't find one they are easy to make. The nipples can be purchased online and you can use a plastic bucket as the water reservoir.
I've also had success by elevating the gravity waterer on a piece of wood. That way they can't physically get into the water and make a mess. Of course they still foul the water with feed though. Using the nipple waterer eliminates most of those issues. You need to teach them how to use it but they eventually catch on.
