Is Your Tap Water Rusty or Reddish-Brown? Does Your Water Have a Metallic Taste or Smell?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, your water may contain high levels of iron. At Water-Pro, we provide iron filtration systems in Ellenton and surrounding areas. High levels of iron in well water not only make your water less appealing to drink, cook or bathe with, but can lead to expensive damage to plumbing fixtures and appliances and even ruin clothing. The professionals at Water-Pro are experts at finding the right solution to remove iron from your well water and have been doing so since 1981. Contact us today to learn more about our iron removal filters and to schedule your appointment.
Types of Iron Filtration Systems
There are several types of iron filtration systems that can be used to remove iron from your well water. At Water-Pro, we use a special resin called Macro-porous resin in our custom-assembled units. This will treat not only hard water, but heavy iron.. Water-Pro continues to service and maintain other iron filtration systems including Greensand Filters. In addition, we will install a new Greensand Filter should the situation warrant. Please contact us with any questions you may have. A Water-Pro technician will be happy to discuss your particular needs and answer any questions you may have.
Types of Iron Found in Water
There are 2 types of iron which may be present in well water. The first type, Ferric iron, can be seen in the water with the naked eye as it is undissolved–or a solid–element in the water. The other type is Ferrous iron. Ferrous iron is dissolved in the water and only becomes visible when the sample of water is oxidized. This can be done when ran through an odor removal system, such as an aerator. This process oxidizes the water and the iron then deposits itself as iron oxide on the inside of the equipment, and eventually, your plumbing fixtures. This is one reason why it is important to plumb your water treatment equipment in the correct order prior to entry into your home.
A Water-Pro technician would be happy to discuss your specific situation, recommend the proper equipment, and provide a written, no-cost, no obligation estimate to solve your water issue. (Please see the Sulfur “Smelly” Water Treatment section for more information on our odor removal systems).
