Drinking water hygiene, the key to success
Clean drinking water is important for humans and animals. Cleaning the drinking water lines is essential for good drinking water hygiene. At Kanters you will find products that make it easy to start every round with a clean system. After all, water tastes best out of a clean glass.
Clean drinking water in a barn
The quality and availability of drinking water are very important in every pig house. Animals drink twice as much as they eat. More and more entrepreneurs realise the importance of drinking water hygiene, but they do encounter practical problems. High temperatures in the barn, for example, and a low flow rate quickly result in contaminated drinking water. How do you prevent your animals from getting sick from dirty drinking water? Kanters explains.
Contaminated drinking water is easy to recognise
It is easy to check whether the water is clean. Take a glass of water and fill it with water from the stable. Would you drink this water? Would you dare to give it to your children? If the answer is ‘No’, you know enough. It is time to clean the drinking water pipes. A quicker check is possible with our Optimixx. Clogged drinking nipples are a sign that the drinking water pipes are dirty.
Contaminated drinking water leads to a
higher mortality rate
High temperatures in the piglet barn and a low drinking water flow rate because young animals drink little, are an ideal environment for contaminated drinking water. This contamination consists of biofilm. This is a slimy layer that attracts bacteria, yeasts and moulds. Lime is also a pollutant that can cause clogged nipples.
These bacteria, yeasts and moulds in the biofilm are harmful to pigs and cause sick animals and a high mortality rate. Clogged nipples can also cause pigs to drink less. This means that the animals eat less and therefore grow less. This results in high costs.
Aqua-clean, the solution for clean drinking water lines
Regular cleaning is the solution for clean drinking water. Kanters has developed Aqua-clean. A drinking water cleaner that removes biofilm from the water lines and makes the drinking water lines completely clean again. As soon as the young pigs enter the barn, they have immediate access to clean drinking water.
If you have problems with limescale in the system, use Cal-clean. This drinking water cleaner removes limescale from the drinking water lines.
