Iron Filter, Air Injection Filter, Air Induction Oxidation Filter
- Odor (H2S)
The process of oxidation filtration is a common method to remove iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide (egg odor) from drinking water.
This process introduces an oxidant to convert the un-filterable dissolved contaminants to particles that can be filtered by a granular media.
- No salt, replacement filter or chemical required
- Prevents red/brown stains in showers, bathrooms, sinks, dishwasher, washing machine etc
- Treats ALL the water in the house
Iron and Manganese in Private Water Systems
Iron and manganese are not health concerns in drinking water. Instead, they both have secondary or recommended drinking water standards because they cause aesthetic problems that make the water undesirable to use in the home and a bitter metallic taste that can make the water unpleasant to drink for both humans and farm animals.
Iron can also cause an orange or brown stain in sinks and in the laundry. Manganese often results in a dense black stain or solid.
Drinking Water Standard:
|Iron||Less Than 0.3 mg/L (or 0.3 parts per million)|
|Manganese||Less Than 0.05 mg/L|
Air injection filters are not guaranteed to remove iron bacteria, manganese bacteria, coliform bacteria and E.coli bacteria. Service flow rates of 5 g.p.m. are a minimum requirement for effective backwashing.
