Poultry Water Treatment
Drinking Water Acidifier
Lower water pH without a bitter taste
As the strongest animal feed grade mineral acid available, PWT® requires a low addition rate to acidify drinking water to biologically effective low levels. The low addition rate allows water palatability to be maintained to promote optimum water consumption in birds and livestock. PWT poultry water treatment can also be used to manipulate pH in order to maximize chlorine effectiveness for waterline cleaning and sanitation.
Why Choose PWT - Poultry Water Treatment
PWT (sodium bisulfate) is the most widely used and proven effective mineral acid on the market. As an FDA-approved GRAS product that also qualifies for use in EPA Safer Choice-labeled products, PWT is effective, safe, and suitable for use in antibiotic-free and conventional production programs.
Maintain Palatability to Optimize Consumption
Due to its strength, PWT is able to lower water pH at a low addition rate so water is acidified without imparting a bitter taste. Birds prefer water at this low pH, which optimizes water consumption.
Low Addition Rate Means Greater Value
PWT is a dry, granular acid that is easy to mix and effective at a low addition rate, which saves money.
Maximize Chlorine Efficacy
By reducing pH, PWT works to maximize the efficacy of chlorine. When used to clean waterlines between flocks, the product helps dissolve lime and scale to restore and maintain full function of waterlines for optimum flow.

PWT Frequently Asked Questions
How Much PWT Is Too Much?
How Do I Decide What Rate To Use?
Is PWT approved for animal consumption?
What is the difference between PWT and citric acid or vinegar?
How long should I run LS-PWT?
I have never run PWT before. Is it ok to run it mid-flock?
Because PWT cleans the water lines so thoroughly, dislodging lots of biofilm and residual material in the lines, a high pressure flush is needed to remove that debris from the water lines.
Using PWT with birds in the house for the first time will make it difficult to remove all of the debris dislodged by the cleaning process possibly causing clogged nipples and birds to ingest the dirty material.
Do I need to make fresh solution everyday?
What is pH?
Will birds drink water at a low pH of 3.5?
Is alkalinity important when testing water?
How do I properly test water to determine addition rate of PWT?
How long should I leave PWT in the lines when I clean between flocks?
How often should I clean my drinkers?
Should PWT be run after I use electrolytes or vitamins?
Will PWT clog my drinker lines?
