Quality of Drinking Water

Make sure the water is suitable and check:

  • Total Number of bacteria and coliform bacteria per ml
  • Hardness
  • pH
  • Iron
  • Manganese

Source is important. Water from the water company is of good and constant quality. Well water quality depends on the location and depth of the source, but in general a purification system is needed.

Check the water quality at least 2x/ year. Take samples from 2 locations: right after purification and where the animals drink.
