*Fluoride Removal (proven very dangerous for horses)
*Removal of Chlorine and Chloramines
*Removal of volatile organics, oils and other unwanted chemicals.Improve the overall taste of the water, making it more desirable for the horse to drink.
*Improved Electrolyte Balance and Hydration
*Improved Performance and Recovery through better hydration.
Case Studies show livestock will drink more water if they like the taste, resulting in better hydration and performance.Water also helps in digestion and elimination of waste. Drinking more water will assist in the prevention of impaction colic.
Drinking healthy water will reduce the possibility of colic from harmful things in the water such as organisms, volatile organics, and chemicals such as Fluoride.
Dime’s Equine Performance Water Filter System has been built to be portable if needed. If there is no water supply, while you are competing, you can bring your own bottles to assure your horse continues to be hydrated with the high quality water it has been used to drinking.
Features and Specifications of the Equine Hydration System:
*2.5” x 20” five micron filtration with spun polypropylene replaceable cartridge
*2.5” x 20” cartridge with KDF for chlorine reduction and coconut shell activated
carbon to remove volatile organics, tastes and odors.
*ESF Scale Preventer. Proprietary catalytic/magnetic to prevent scale prevention in
reverse osmosis membrane.
*Pressure Boost System. Can operate dry.
*2.5” x 14” Thin film (polyamide) Reverse Osmosis Membrane150 gallon per day
*Field adjustable 3.2 gallon storage tank
*Custom Ultra Violet Disinfection. Calculated Fluence 40mJ/cm2 @ 3 GPM.
Vents in lamp for cooling, Thermoplastic coil. Used for final
sterilization of water and prevents cross contamination of water in the hydro-pneu
*Accelerated hydration. Injected with Oxygen
*Injection system available for electrolytes and minerals
Equine Model E-150 Water Treatment System

chemicals and volatile organics from the water.
*Can be up fitted for bottled water for humans.
*150 gallons per day system. Can be desinged for your barn or training facility up to 30,000 gallons per day.
Testimonial: “ We installed Dime’s Equine Performance Water System at our stable. My Quarter Horse, Cody has always been in peak condition. One hundredth of a second can cost you in the Barrel Racing World. We have monitored the amount of water he is drinking and it has increased dramatically. Cody has been running his best times consistently, he is more focused, with a much shorter recovery time as well. I believe being better hydrated results in increased performance and I am more comfortable knowing he is drinking water for his overall well being. I have 5 gallon bottles I take with me to make sure he gets the water during competitions and rodeos as well.” Ashley Porter, WPRA, NBHA member.
“The level of water and electrolytes available for sustaining a particular level of performance.”
Facts: Insufficient water leads to dehydration.
*A horse can survive 4 times longer without food than
*Water represents 40% to 75% of the largest single
*Muscular Tissue of Horses is 75% water.
*Daily water need for horses is 4-8 gallons per day.
*Daily water need for performance horses increase to up to
12-15 gallons per day.
*A -1% loss of body weight by fluid will result in an increase
of core body temperature.
*A -3% loss of body weight by fluid will cause impaired performance.
*A -5% loss of body weight by fluid will cause cardiovascular strain.
During a workout, a 2% to 6% loss of fluid body weight is common for a performance horse.
Example: An average 1100 lb performance horse can lose 33 pounds in a one hour workout. This equates to a little over 4 gallons of water.
The importance of proper Hydration for Horses:
There are five basic nutrients needed to sustain life: vitamins, protein, energy, water and minerals. Water is the most essential nutrient in a horse’s diet.
Dehydrated horses will not eat due to their instinct that water is required for digestion making dehydration in horses even more serious compared to humans and other animals.
Reduced water intake can result in dehydration which can cause a decrease in performance. Water composes the majority of a horse’s body and accounts for several very important functions including:
*Body Temperature Regulating
*Water transports the nutrients throughout the horses body *Aids in the absorption and utilization of nutrients and digestion. *Water is also needed for waste discharge / removal
Thirst is not an indicator of need. It means it’s too late. Water needs to be available to your horse at all times, not just an occasional offering while competing. Electrolyte supplements are essential during competition as well. Problems of Dehydration:
*Excessive loss of water and electrolytes
*Effects performance and thermoregulation (temperature)
*Can be a direct cause for injury and illness.
*Can cause loss of performance
Rhabdomyolysis (tying up) in Horses A more common term for this is called “tying up” and can frequently be pointed towards dehydration (oxygen starvation to the muscles) and electrolyte imbalance. Anyone in the performance industry has seen a horse experience this painful contraction of muscle spasms in the horses back and rear areas. Keeping the horse properly hydrated with a balance of electrolytes has been a very effective preventative measure for performance horses.
