In the specific case of poultry farming, important results are achieved such as a significant decrease in the need to purge the system, thus the application of this process is indicated when medicines are supplied, also for the elimination of biofilms in the pipelines, it also helps to control the bacterial load, as it eliminates the limescale build up that facilitates this proliferation, and allows the egg to become stronger and less brittle.
In scientific terms, water hardness is generally the amount of dissolved calcium and magnesium in water. But in layman’s terms, you may notice water hardness when your hands still feel slimy after washing with soap and water, or when your drinking glasses at home become less than crystal clear. Over time hard water can leave deposits that can damage pipelines.
Mineral deposits from hard water, also known as scale deposits, are often responsible for clogging pipes. When hard water is heated, a certain amount of water evaporates, causing the minerals suspended in it to precipitate. This solidified scale (or limescale) can then accumulate inside the pipes, water heaters, washing machines and dishwashers, etc.
