Is there such a thing as a filtered water pump for a stock tank?
Due to unfortunate circumances (my well died) I'm having to pump water from the creek next to my barn for horse water.
I live in a small town, and I have no reason to think someone is dumping toxins, the water looks and smells ok, but is there a type of filtered pump I can get? And maybe something that will give me more water pressure?
You should be able to get your local extension or water quality division to do a water test for you if you'd like. If you were in my state, I could tell you if there were any outfalls upstream of you, sorry!
But for livestock, chances are you can just pump straight to your tanks. Given that a water test should be free or VERY inexpensive, I'd go ahead and do that, then you have peace of mind.
Do you have a permit for your pump? Since you are removing flow from the stream, in some states you need one, and it can also vary by how much you are pumping per day in terms of percentage of overall stream discharge. Might want to check just to stay in the clear.
