Water Treatment for Poultry & Water Fowl

J&F were asked by a water treatment and borehole drilling company to review a water analysis, the water to be used by a small producer of poultry and water fowl.

The water report showed:

High levels of Nitrites and Nitrates

A particularly high level of Manganese (even though the iron levels was low)

A total hardness of approximately 300 ppm as CaCO3

High coliform counts

In consultation with both the water treatment company and the farmer the following scheme was proposed and supplied, with a requirement to provide 18 m3 per day of treated water
