    Slurry Pit Liners

    Putting a slurry pit in, cant justify a concrete one as its for sucklers, looking at laying a liner.
    Anyone put one in?

    if you have enough clay content in your soil you will be able to line it with that

    No clay here I'M afraid. 1000ft up on a hill.
    Have seen puddling clay advertised though anyone know how much they charge?

    Minimum thickness for H.D.P.E is now 2.5 mm if you want EA approval. And if you go ahead with 2mm and something happens, you'r in deep **IT.
    Have a look here talk to Mathew http://www.aquadam.co.uk/

    Because there is no air in the pit it doesn't seem to separate,but we do circulate the store with an umbilical pump.Old store was only stirred twice in 28 years! but we only bedded on sawdust.

    Because we pumped in every other day I think it stopped it from settling (circular enamel store)

    Re: Slurry Pit Liners

    NOT hearsay. A.E would want you to use anything in H.D.P.E thats thicker than 2.5 mm, prefrably 5-6mm its already going on on the continent, aaaanyway the thicker it is the less prone to minor rips and tares. But there's one good thing about using it is you can repair it with a hot air gun and a patch.
    Most installers will now give a 20 year garentee.

    Did you apply for planing permission for these lagoons or did you go straight ahead and build them. I have applied for planing but heard nothing back only that they had received the forms.

    Useful website if you are considering lining a slurry pit, or need cost effective storage option

    www.jonesmcgirr.com

    They design, supply and install 2.5mm HDPE, and yes, it does have to be 2.mm HDPE for EA approval I'm afraid. They are based in N Ireland but have installed lagoons in Scotland, England, ROI etc.

    Re: Slurry Pit Liners

    Are there going to be grants to build these rolled out across England. I read in dairy farmer magazine that the south west developement agency were all ready handing them out at 40%.

    Perhaps it is worth just clearing up a little confusion. The South West Regional Development Agency is not offering grant for slurry pit liners, but can offer support for covers over slurry lagoons and tanks. There are also a number of other on farm items that can attract grant, for more information please explore the link below.

    That has to be the most backward idea ever. No grant for the lagoon, but a cover, yeah, great....

    err yeah, if the farmer needs a lagoon he pays for it and the government help by keeping rainwater out, seems pretty logical to me

    Why not just give a grant to the farmer to help pay for the muck store? Are we in the business of actually helping farmers or just paying for ridiculous lip services?
