                                                                            FREQUENTLY ASKED

 Question:         Can Flush Tanks clean both my parlor and holding pen?

 Answer:           Yes. A pair of 2 x 10 tanks are adequate for up to a double 30 parlor with 250 head holding pen
                   and 44’of total width. Smaller tanks are available and sized proportionally to serve smaller areas.
                   Still larger tanks may be provided for up to double 48 parlors or larger holding areas up to 48’
                   total width.


 Question:         What slopes can I flush?

 Answer:           A 1% slope is recommended in the parlor (3/4% minimum). The holding area should slope
                   between 2.5% to 5%. Other slopes will work, request technical assistance from our staff for
                   special applications.


 Question:         Do flush tanks cost more than a valve flush system (valves, exterior reservoir and underground
                   piping)?

 Answer:           No. When all cost are considered flush tanks are usually the least costly method to provide total
                   parlor and holding pen flush clean up.


 Question:         Will the Flush Tanks use more water than a high volume hose?

 Answer:           No. If properly utilized the flush tank system will use virtually the same amount of water but
                   require only 30 seconds for cleanup compared to 30 minutes with a hose.


 Question:         Do I need a separate air compressor for the Flush Tanks?

 Answer:           Typically no. If you have an air operated parlor or crowd gate the flush tanks can use this air
                   system and require less than 3% of the total output. It is recommended air be taken off prior to
                   any in line oilers.
