LUCAA+ Waterworks Cleaner cleans inside the drinking water supply pipes to protect the health of horses.
The cleaner is enriched with beneficial probiotic ‘good’ bacteria, naturally sourced from plants. These helpful probiotics actively clean potentially harmful biofilm as well as organic waste. Biofilm is the slimy layer of thriving opportunistic pathogenic bacteria that easily develops on surfaces in contact with water. It reduces water quality and can cause an unpleasant odour. Horses may unknowingly drink unclean water containing biofilm, risking their health.
An adult horse can drink 25 to 30 litres of water per day, and up to 60 to 80 litres when working, so ensuring good quality drinking water is essential. Poor quality drinking water is unsafe and can lead to reduced food intake and serious health problems. It can also contain too much iron, which may lead to chronic overload and toxicity and can even cause death. Removing the biofilm ensures the water is safe and clean, which benefits the horse’s health and well-being.
LUCAA+ Waterworks Cleaner cleans the water supply pipes by flushing, which requires expertise and technical knowledge (plumber). Contact your distributor if necessary. Do not use taps during this operation.
Disconnect the water supply at the incoming mains and allow the pipe to run empty. Connect a booster pump to the main line. Shake before use. Add 1 litre LUCAA+ Waterworks Cleaner to 10 litres of lukewarm water and use the solution to fill the pipes. Purge the pipes to remove any air. Allow to stand for twelve hours. Disconnect the pipes and drain empty.
Flush with hot water to remove all contamination. Re-connect to the mains, fill and rinse again.
Regular chemical and/or bacterial analysis of the water is recommended for optimum results. Please contact your distributor for further information and to arrange testing.
