The power needed to run this new system is very, very minimal, The State of North Carolina Department of Water Quality has given a permitt to the inventors to build a version on a 53' trailer for demonstration purposes. The proposed trailer system will be able to handle flush system barns up to 4800 finishing hogs. The layout for a pit recharge system will be on hand for interested parties look at.
