Con-Tented Cleanwater tanks are operating at a large number of units across the UK. The principle is to offer clean water direct to the pigs, free from disease and contamination from bird life and other pests.
The tanks are made from anti-microbial plastic which inhibits bacteria multiplying. The simple drinker nipple(s) ensure the pigs can consume fresh water straight from the tanks. Trials were completed over a 3 year period and the benefits were soon evident - healthier pigs; access to water in minus degree temperatures and a massive saving in water.
Water testing has demonstrated excellent results against E Coli, Salmonella, MRSA, Biofilm, Legionella and others.
Tanks are currently available in 250l, 500l and 1000l capacity but we also offer custom made tanks if required. Tank frames are also available. The 500l and 1000l tanks can be placed directly on the ground with the nipples fitted in positions to suit your needs. Farmers do tend to set nipples at various heights in the tank to suit varying pig sizes.
The Con-Tented Cleanwater system also has a positive financial benefit to the producer with a reduction in wasted water and reduced man hours required to operate the clean water tanks compared to traditional open troughs.
