Anti-Microbial Water Trough Disc
There is nothing more heart sinking after a day of chores then to go to fill water troughs only to find that they’ve started to turn green. The battle to keep water fresh and clean seems never ending, made more so if you choose, like ourselves, to keep your horse’s drinking water chemical free.
FreshaTank Discs offer the ultimate eco solution. They use the same industrial silver as found in drinking water purifiers, hot tub filters and many medical items including burns victim treatments.
The disc is a microbial product which you place in your horse’s water trough or drinking bucket and the strong microbial action of the 99.9% pure industrial silver destroys fungal, viral, bacterial micro-organisms and parasites in the reproductive stage, this helps keep the water fresher for longer and prevents the spread of disease.
It also reduces ammonia, phosphate and nitrate levels in the water due to the reduced levels of bacteria.
The discs were originally developed to help stabilise aquarium and fish tank water quality without the need to add additional chemicals which may harm fish and sensitive aquatic plant life.
Horses often won’t drink much water when away from home i.e. at shows, when travelling or moving to a new home which can lead to dehydration. This can impact not only performance but a horse’s long term health by putting organs under repeated unnecessary stress. The simple reason many horses don’t like drinking when away from home is that the water just doesn’t taste or smell like the water they’ve become accustomed to. For us adding a FreshaTank Disc to the water bucket is a great way help to encourage fussy drinkers to take in water when away from home.
