FOR more than 25 years, a 100 per cent Australian water treatment system has proven a winner for Australian farmers desperate to provide water for thirsty stock.
Steven McCracken, a South Australian station owner who farms a 5000-hectare property on the Eyre Peninsula, experienced the benefits of the DELTAwater solutions bore water treatment technology first hand.
His DELTA rapidly cleared a frustrating build-up of minerals blocking his main stock-irrigation pipe. Mr McCracken said discovering the blocked pipe caused stress and concern.
“I had sheep and cattle drinking on the line and I was not getting enough water through the system,” he said.
“I already had a DELTA bore water treatment unit on another line so I put it on the one that was blocked.
“It worked and unblocked the pipe quickly. It was a great relief.”
Mr McCracken’s success in treating his water with DELTA prompted him to buy more units.
Alex and Dianne Panov founded their Newcastle-based company, DELTAwater solutions, to address problems from salinity, scale, iron and corrosion.
Mr Panov said Mr McCracken’s stock watering story was a familiar one.
“It is essential for people in rural areas to have access to high quality bore water,” Mr Panov said.
“This need is so much more apparent during periods of extended dry which so many parts of Australia are now experiencing.”
DELTA custom makes water treatment systems for house and gardens and in stock, irrigation, commercial and mining industries.
“Circumstances demand that rural Australia has highly-efficient pump and piping systems in place to make the most of scant water supplies.
“We manufacture our environmentally-friendly, high quality, practical solution to suit individual circumstances and withstand tough conditions.”
The DELTAwater treatment system technology has evolved to meet varying water-supply applications worldwide, with the business winning many awards.
