Types of Iron Found in Well 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, which is dissolved in the water, and only becomes visible when the given sample of water is oxidized–as when run through an odor removal system, such as an aerator. That 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. The technicians from Water-Pro can analyze your specific water problem and provide you with a written, no-cost estimate outlining the proper equipment that will put an end to your problems with iron in your well water. And if the problems include unpleasant odors, we can address that as well. (Please see the Sulfur “Smelly” Water Treatment section for more information on our odor removal systems). The professionals at Water-Pro are experts at finding the right solution to remove iron from your well water.
Which Iron Filtration System is Best?
There are several types of iron filtration systems that can be used to remove iron from your well water. Previously, a separate iron filter, commonly known as a Green Sand or Potassium filter–which uses potassium permanganate as its regenerant–was used in conjunction with a traditional water softener to treat hard water along with heavy iron. Today, Water-Pro uses a special resin called Macro-porous resin in our custom-assembled units to treat not only hard water, but heavy iron, in one unit instead of two. Water-Pro continues to service and maintain Greensand Filters, however, and will install a new Greensand Fitler 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.
