How To Choose the Right Iron Filter for Well Water
The best way to determine the right iron filter for your well water is to have your water tested by a professional who can determine the levels of iron and other elements that may be present in your water. Additional factors that may be considered are how many gallons of water you use and the lifespan of the filtration system itself.
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.
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.
