    Horse Hydrator Water Filter System

    Item # 25292
    Proper hydration is essential to keep horses performing at their peak. With an extraordinary sense of smell and taste, horses can pick up foreign substances in the water, making traveling to shows or events a challenge.

    Small. Compact. Affordable. The Hose Hydrator is easily attached to an ordinary hose or faucet to help eliminate foul tastes and odors in the water. The filtration system is effective at reducing the content of chlorine, soluble heavy metals, iron and hydrogen sulfide in your horse’s drinking water. Just one Horse Hydrator unit is good for an average of 700 gallons!

    Why Horse Hydrator?

    What is the most essential nutrient to a horse? You are correct, WATER is. It is common knowledge that horses are composed of 70% water.

    So you know that water and proper hydration can make a monumental impact in overall health and performance in your horse. You always have water in front of them but they just aren't drinking enough. With horses having a tremendous sense of both smell and taste, most equine enthusiasts fail to realize how selective their animals are. Often times when traveling with horses, they can be seen inspecting the foreign water they are being offered rather than drinking. After splashing it around tasting and smelling it, they will sooner dehydrate themselves if the water tastes foul or smells strange. Horse Hydrator provides an easy and affordable way to eliminate these strange tastes and smells.

    This easily attachable filter not only rids the water of foul tastes and smells allowing horses to drink more but chlorine, soluble heavy metals, iron and hydrogen sulfide are significantly reduced in the filtration process.

    This product will help to reduce injury that can be caused from dehydration and consuming the harmful elements listed above. Even a minor decrease in the horse's intake of water can cause major decreases in performance.

      Comments about Horse Hydrator Water Filter System:

      This filter is incredibly handy for horse shows, trail rides, and everyday use. I have a horse with Cushing's - so he drinks a LOT of water, but he is picky. This little hose adapter filter has been perfect to help him avoid colic and dehydration, but encouraging him to drink lots of yummy water - not matter where we are! Not to mention...it lasts for 2,000 gallons, thats pretty incredible for the price. I dig it.

              I originally purchased this filter due to the iron in my barn well. I hoped it would work but it didn't. However, the city water had a chlorine smell and I am using it for that which is doing a fine job. I feel better giving my horse the city water. I've only been using for three weeks for water for three horses. Can't say how long it will last.

                    Does the filter expire? I'd like to buy one of these for use at horse shows. Since I don't show a lot, and only show 1 horse, this filter could last several years for me. Will the filter remain effective if it's used only sporadically over several years? Thank you.

                    I know the recommendations advise the filter be changed after about 700 gallons have been filtered. How do I know when I am reaching/have reached/have exceeded the recommended volume of water. I'm not likely to log each bucket full, nor do I know exactly how much volume when I fill a partly filled stock tank.

                      With reaching the point when you should change the filter is that you can estimate how much water you have watered your horse. Think if a horse drinks 10 gallons a day it will last you 100 days. But since you don't know the amount everyday they suggest you just notice when it is not effective any more. When the water starts smelling or tasting bad to switch the filter out.

                  • Q:

                    Would this filter reduce sand in our water? There seems to be an ongoing problem with the well at the barn where I board. The managers feel that a little sand is ok because horses ingest sand when they graze!! We have automatic water cups and some of us also have water buckets. I know ther is sand coming throuh the cup - but I bring water from our clubroom area ever night as there seems to be less sand from that faucet. This is the water I use for my horses's bucket. He drinks from the bucket but also the cup. I have started him on Sand Clear because I fear what this sand diet will do over a period of time. Thanks for your input - Barb

                  Displaying questions 1-7

                  Do you have a question about this product? 

                  The Process

                  The Horse Hydrator is an easily attachable filter that rids foreign water of unfamiliar tastes and smells, bringing water to its purest state. Not only does the filter rid the water of foul tastes allowing horses to drink more but, chlorine, soluble heavy metals, iron and hydrogen sulfide are significantly reduced in the filtration process. This product will help to reduce injury that can be caused from dehydration and consuming the harmful elements listed above. Even a minor decrease in the horse’s intake of water can cause major decreases in performance. "At a loss of 2% of water intake there is 10-20% reduction in performance." (Equine Chronicle Online Jan. 23, 2012) As horse competitors 10-20% of performance can make the difference between winning and losing.

                  KDF 55 Medium

                  Kinetic Degradation Fluxion or KDF Horse Hydrator uses KDF-55 process media. This is made of high purity copper-zinc granule combination which is responsible for decreasing the chlorine, iron, lead, mercury, hydrogen sulfide, magnesium, calcium carbonate, chromium, algae, fungi, bacteria and other harmful contaminants in unfiltered water. We use this media so that through an exchange of electrons, the impurities are reduced to harmless components. For example through a reduction reaction free chlorine is reduced to a water soluble chloride ion. When water that contains hydrogen sulfide is run through the Horse Hydrator the copper (Cu+2) ion losses an electron and the sulfur gains and electron. This yields an insoluble copper sulfide and water. The insoluble particles are filtered out and the clear water is filtered through the Horse Hydrator. Iron removal via the HH occur when the KDF media changes iron ions into ferric hydroxide through an oxidation reduction process. (Lenntech 1998-2015)

                  Activated Coconut Carbon

                  The second type of filtration incorporated in the Horse Hydrator is through the use of the eco-friendly coconut carbon. This type of filtration has a higher volume of microspores to trap contaminants more readily than coal or wood type carbons. It also can reproduce their natural fruit up to three times a year and collection of the shells doesn't injure the tree. Previous to their use in filters, many of the shells were wasted or burned, but now it is a renewable resource that can benefit the well-being of our horses in a win-win situation.

                  As with many of these reactions, the contaminants are filtered or reduced to a more harmless form which leaves us with a more clear, odorless and pure tasting water our horses will enjoy helping them increase performance and decrease health risks.

                  Carbon filter media is produced by super-heating dried coconut husks in a low oxygen environment, using a process called pyrolysis. The resulting "biochar" husk, is a purified form of carbon, containing large amounts of cellular sized surface area, negatively charged to attract positively charged toxins. Toxins in the water become attached to the husk's carbon surfaces. Over time, the attractive charge of carbon surfaces are neutralized, making it time to change the filter.

                  We encourage you to conduct your own test and tell us how effective Horse Hydrator was. Share you testimony with us on www.Facebook.com/HorseHydrator.com

                  The Science

                  We could always tell that horses preferred water that has been purified but we wanted to find out just how much they preferred the water that has been ran through the Horse Hydrator filter than that which hasn't. Therefore, we conducted a double blind test in a controlled environment and the results were staggering.

                  Methodology:

                  There were two phases to this study, which was a double blind, randomized study. In phase one, 12 new 5 gallon water containers were used to acquire water from a downtown Chicago water source. Half of the water containers were filled with unfiltered water. They were yellow containers. The other half of containers (red) were filled with the same water filtered through a Horse Hydrator filter. This water was offered to two different test horses who were stalled and only had access to the test water. No outside water was accessible to these horses. There was a five gallon bucket with each type of water available to each horse at all times, thus giving them free choice of which water to drink. This was continued until all of the water of one type was consumed and the other type of water that remained was then measured.

                  Phase two repeated this process with a different water source, Tomahawk, WI, which was conducted in the same matter. The attendant to the water did not know which water was from which source until after the test had concluded. The placement of the water buckets in each stall were also reversed between phase one and two to negate any location bias.

                  Hypothesis:

                  The water consumed by the horses from the Horse Hydrator will be more than double that of the unfiltered water.

                  Significance of study:

                  To provide useful information as to the effectiveness of a necessary product in the equine horse injury which will help keep horses hydrated so they can perform to the maximal potential while decreasing the possibilities of colic and other serious medical conditions associated with the stress of trailering and stalling equines.

                  Summary of results:

                  These results show that when offered the red water which is filtered with the Horse Hydrator they chose to drink the filtered water at a rate of 98.3 % and 96.67% of the time for Horse A and 96.67% and 95% of the time for Horse B. These results far exceeded our initial expectations and showed that when given free choice that all the horses tested ignored the foreign tasting water and choose the Horse Hydrator water almost exclusively.

                  Conclusion:

                  Almost all horses decrease the amount of water consumed when traveling due to foreign tastes and odor. Small to moderate amounts of dehydration can steal the performance potential of these equine athletes. If a simple product can reduce the detrimental effects of this problem, it should be incorporated into any horse owner's regiment to get the most out of their equine partner.
