Iron filtration from the Water StoreAre you unsure if your home would benefit from installing an iron filtration system? There are many incidences and conditions that would benefit from this type of water system. Here are some of the key benefits and uses you can expect from an iron filtration system, in order to provide your home with the best quality water possible.

Removal of Rust & Sulfur

Not only do iron filtration systems remove iron, but additionally they remove manganese and sulfur from your water supply. Does your water have a rotten egg smell to it? Does it cause an excessive amount of rust? The buildup of sulfur gas in the water, especially in well water supplies will lead to an off-putting and rotten egg smell. Excess iron results in the production of rust, and can cause damage and an off-taste as well. Installing an iron filtration system will help negate these elements, and provide your home with fresh tasting and odorless water for you to enjoy.

Automatic Regeneration

A key benefit of the Iron/Manganese Sulfur filtration is its automatic regeneration. This is capable because of the use of a small amount of the compound known as potassium permanganate. This compound works to re-oxidize the green sand filter media, and creates a care-free and low-maintenance solution for your home water needs.

Sediment Removal

Another key benefit to the iron filtration system, is that it removes a build up of sediment that may be present in your water. An excess of sediment can negatively effect the taste of your water, and removing it properly is the best way to achieve the highest quality of water for your family to use and consume. The filtration system works to remove sediment as small as 20 to 40 microns in size. To put it in perspective, the eye of a needle is 1,230 microns in size. Removal of such small sediment size assures that the water is rid of unwanted and off-putting materials that can be present.
