Water Trailers for Horse and Cattle Farm Use

Water Trailers for Horse and Cattle Farm Use

Lately, Wastecorp has been receiving an influx of concerned phone calls from ranchers and farmers looking for portable water transportation systems to manage rainfall shortages across wide areas of farmland and grazing fields. In some areas of the Western United States and parts of Western Canada, drought like conditions is affecting everything from fruit and vegetable production to livestock numbers. This affects the livelihoods of ranchers, farmers and the average consumer with higher prices at the grocery store.

What we typically tell customers when they call in for water trailer recommendations, “You should only need to buy a water trailer once, and when you do so, do it right. Don’t cut corners.” In the water trailer business, doing it right means constructing a trailer frame that will withstand the elements from blazing hot sun to colder, temperatures, dirt, and dust.

Every trailer gets completely dipped in galvanizing solution to resist corrosion for years to come.  We also work with you to determine what accessories you need now or may need down the road. This includes rear sprayers or side sprayers to water dirt roads, horse arenas or stables.  All hosing is premium industrial grade in various lengths to wash down cattle or water vegetables.

Why Do Some Water Trailers Have Black Tanks?

525 Gallon Water Trailer With Black Tank to Reduce Algae

One of the most popular questions customers ask when trying to find the right water trailer for their needs is why do some water trailers have black or green tanks? The answer is simple, black or green tanks help to reduce algae growth in the water tanks. This is especially helpful if the water will be used for drinking water or livestock watering needs.

Who Buys Water Trailers With Black Tanks?

Water trailers with black tanks are especially popular for applications that require potable water. The black polyethylene tanks help to reduce algae growth.  Black tank water trailers are popular among marathon, triathlon, iron man and cycling organizations that regularly hold events where clean, potable water is a must. Neighborhood Associations hosting street fairs use these water trailers for needs involving outdoor cooking and attractions involving water rides.

How Can Our Association Reduce The Costs With Buying a Water Trailer?

Many of our running club customers and neighborhood associations team up with other groups in their area and split the cost of the water trailer. This ensures that the water trailer is used regularly and in most cases ends up being an excellent long term investment versus having to call in a water truck service. This requires some planning, but you’ll be amazed on how many groups need a water trailer but are looking for a partner to defray the costs. Ask other associations in your area and you might get the answers you’re looking for.

No matter if you ultimately decide on a translucent or black tank, make sure the water trailer is well built by a reputable manufacturer. This ensures proper safety when towing on public roads and overall reliability. The deck and piping you see on the 525 gallon water trailer above is manufactured by Wastecorp. It features a galvanized diamond plate deck material which resists corrosion from the elements. The same goes for trailer frame. The valves are all brass and the hosing material is industrial grade rubber which is designed for constant use.

Water Hauling Equipment for Construction Sites and Mines

Water Hauling Equipment

When selecting fresh water distribution equipment for construction sites, mines or public works needs, make sure you check the water trailer specification to ensure that the product can stand up to the harsh conditions on your site. You want to make sure you understand how you will be filling and discharging the water trailer on a regular basis  so you have the right configuration for your needs.


Heavy Duty Water Trailer

Heavy Duty Water Trailer

The water trailer you see here has a galvanized deck and frame system with no wood in site. What this does is keep moisture from corroding critical components while providing a more stable water hauling method on uneven or winding roads. Most people forget that a full water tank load weighs hundreds or even thousands of lbs depending on the model you select.


Next, examine what kind of components you need to fulfill your specific tasks. On construction sites, water trailers are used to provide fresh water for machines, cool saws, sanitation needs, dust control and clean up. Most likely, you will be filling the water trailer off site via fire hydrant or other municipal water source. Thus, a large opening at the top will help to fill the tank quickly using a variety of hose sizes.

Mining and public works applications are a different story. Most mining customers need to fill the tank from a lake or a reservoir area. Sometimes, the water trailer can’t get close to the lake because of the incline, decline or elevation. Thus, a long hose reel is required so that you can pull the water using the high pressure pump anywhere from 50 to 100 ft away from the source. The photo you see here shows a dual hose reel system. The reel on the left features industrial grade hosing for wash down services or spray applications. The hose reel on the right features a heavy duty 100 ft. discharge style hose when either emptying the tank or providing back up fire suppression services.


Lastly, the quality in water trailers really does vary widely these days. The old adage that “you get what you pay for”  is true in the water trailer business as it is in any other. Make sure you check the specifications of your manufacturer before ordering. And make sure you understand your water hauling needs.
