Contaminated drinking water directly impacts animal health, welfare and performance. Adding medicines, vaccines and nutritional supplements to the drinking water creates a biofilm resulting in organic pollution of drinking water. Biofilm is the breeding ground for pathogenic microorganisms. There are many pathogens that are transmitted via the drinking water system, such as E. coli, Salmonella, Avian Influenza Virus, African Swine Fever Virus. Once such a pathogen is present in the drinking water system, it can quickly infect the whole population, as the pathogens are directly consumed.
Removing the bioﬁlm already removes 99% of all microorganisms, and the remaining pathogens will not stand a chance against Intra Hydrocare, which is effectively till the last nipple due to its strong stabilized character. This way, you can prevent the drinking water system from acting as a transmission route for pathogens and from infecting your pigs/poultry .

Intra Hydrocare is available in the following packaging units: 1 L bottle, 5 L can, 10 L can and 20 L can. With Intra Hydrocare you get value for money. Besides the unique Money Back Guarantee, Intra Hydrocare is a densely composed product. Intra Hydrocare delivers 11.9 kg per 10 L.
Intra Hydrocare is based on ultra-stabilized hydrogen peroxide.
'Dosed in the drinking water system, the slow release effect of Intra Hydrocare allows it to react in a controlled manner with encountered biofilm and pathogens. During this chemical reaction, Intra Hydrocare will dissolve into oxygen and water. Both of which are completely safe for humans, animals, equipment and the environment.'
Intra Hydrocare can be used for 2 purposes: cleaning and maintenance. What dosage should be used depends on several factors, such as the quality of the incoming water, and if the house is empty or animals are present.
Cleaning with Intra Hydrocare in an empty house
Fill the drinking system with a 1-3% solution (1-3 liter Intra Hydrocare per 100 liter of water). The product has a self-working effervescent action, so brushing is not required. After filling all the pipes, drinking nozzles, cups or towers must also be filled so the whole system is treated. Ensure there is always air-escape in the drinking system. Allow the solution to stand for at least 12 hours and then rinse the whole system, including the drinking nozzles, cups and towers with clean water.
Cleaning with Intra Hydrocare in an operational barn
If necessary, the system can be treated when the animals are present. Start with a dosage of 0.010% (= 100 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water) for 5 days. If needed increase the dosage by 50 ml every two days until the maximum dosage of 0.020 % is reached (= 200 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water). Depending on the amount and type of contamination, this method will take app. 10 days. In case the water / feed intake changes, the dosage must be lowered.
In case of severe biofilm / pathogenic bacteria pollution, a water analysis is recommended and first clean the system when the animals are not present.
Maintenance with Intra Hydrocare
Incoming water polluted: dose 0.0030 – 0.0050% (= 30 – 50 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water) every day.
Incoming water okay: dose 0.010 – 0.015% (=100-150 ml Intra Hydrocare per 1000 liter of water) 1 – 2 day(s) a week.
Cleaning and disinfection of drinking systems in empty barns: Use a 1-3% Intra Hydrocare concentration, and leave it for one night in the drinking water system. Ensure there is always air-escape in the drinking system.
- Empty house
- 10-12 hours
- 1-3 % solution
- Animals present
- 10-14 days
- Use 100 ml / 1.000 liter.
- If needed continue with 100 ml / 1.000 liter till the system is clean.
In case of severe bioﬁlm / pathogenic bacteria pollution, a water analysis is recommended and ﬁrst clean the system when the animals are not present.
- Make sure there is always air-escape in the drinking system when cleaning the system. Be aware that 1 L Intra Hydrocare produces 200 L oxygen.
- Wear safety gloves and goggles when using Intra Hydrocare.
The water quality can be easily measured with the Intra Clean Quick Scan.
If you want to see if Intra Hydrocare is dosage is still effective at the end of the pipelline, measure the water with the Intracare peroxide strips. A heavily polluted system will show no active peroxide at the end of the pipeline, which means that the dosage should be increased.
After overnight cleaning of the drinking water lines, empty the waste water in a white bucket to see the pollution that comes out of the lines.
