The main reason I was interested in trying out Puroxi (Oxy Blast) was due to the poor water quality at Pine Park Farms. Each barn at the farm has its own separate well with different mineral levels but what they all have in common is a high level of manganese.
Before switching to Puroxi (OB), I was using chlorine as the daily water sanitation product for my turkey farm. The interaction between the chlorine and the manganese produced a thick black slime/sludge that would coat all of the waterlines and pug them up over time. To try to clear up the water going into the barn, I had tried a variety of different water filtration systems from a few different water filtration companies. None of them seemed to be able to keep up and would plug up over time. The switch from chlorine to Puroxi (Oxy Blast) has eliminated this problem.
The Puroxi (OB) does not react with the manganese and has actually over time removed all off the black slime and sludge throughout all of my waterlines. The waterlines are now cleaner than they have ever been.
ThePuroxi (OB) also seems to work extremely effectively as a daily disinfectant. I am able to achieve the same level ofPuroxi (OB) from the start of my waterlines to the end of the waterlines. This is quite a feat as one of the barns is over 600 ft long. The litter conditions in the barns have improved and the litter is not as wet as with the chlorinated water.
Another big improvement has been in the feed conversion for turkey Toms. Where I previously achieved an average of 2.4 feed conversion in 16wk/16.5kg toms, I have now averaged an 2.25 feed conversion for 16wk/16.5kg toms.
I am going to attach a few photos so you can see the improvements of one of the cistern tanks and a small filter to show how the Puroxi (Oxy Blast) has cleared up my water lines. You are welcome to use these in the article if you want.
LEFT – This is what a small simple filter looked like with the chlorine treatment. The water flowing through this small filter was filtered first by large iron eating filters.
RIGHT – This photo is the exact same filter, after using the Puroxi (OB)
The following are above-view photos from one of my cistern tanks –
Before the start of using the Puroxi (OB);
1 week later after the use of Puroxi (OB). The brown/black residue has been coming off the sides and settling on the bottom of the tank;
Less than 4 weeks after starting Puroxi (OB). What a remarkable & welcome difference!
