Water Line Flushing Using Venturi Injection

Mix Stock Solution using Reliant Tabs

  • Add 4 Reliant Tabs tablets per gallon of water
  • Let dissolve
  • Place suction hose in stock solution
  • Do not add any type of dye to the solution


  • Turn on flush
  • When flushing solution into the waterlines it is critical that the entire line is completely full of solution. Some farms don’t have enough pressure to keep the lines full with all lines flushing at once. If you are low on pressure flush in solution one line at a time.
  • You should smell some chlorine at the end of the line to insure solution has reached the end of the water line
  • Turn off flush
  • Recommend triggering all water nipples
  • Turn flush back on for a few minutes to insure lines are completely full
  • Let stock solution stand overnight
  • Recommend cleaning stand tubes with a circular style brush
  • Repeat the above step for flushing with clean water to make sure the solution has been completely removed. Flush with clean water for 10-15 minutes to insure solution has been removed. If you are low on pressure flush one line at a time with clean water.
