For more than 25 years, the Deltawater Solutions water treatment system has helped Australian farmers provide water for thirsty stock.
Minerals in bore water, regardless of drinkability, can leave residue in pipes, pumps and other water-based machines and cause blockages or corrosion.
Station owner Steven McCracken, who farms 5000 hectares on the Eyre Peninsula, has experienced the benefits of the Deltawater Solutions treatment technology first hand.
His Deltawater bore water conditioner rapidly cleared a frustrating build-up of minerals that was blocking his main stock-irrigation pipe, which he discovered when he noticed he was not getting enough water to his stock during hot weather.
"I had sheep and cattle drinking on the line and I was not getting enough water through the system," Mr McCracken said.
"I put a Delta bore water treatment unit on and it unblocked the pipe quickly. It was a great relief."
Alex and Dianne Panov founded Deltawater Solutions to address problems from salinity, scale, iron and corrosion.
Mr Panov said Mr McCracken's stock story was a familiar one.
"It is essential for farmers to be able to access their bore water all year round for their stock," he said.
"As the quality of bore water varies, the Deltawater system allows even poor quality water to be used."
