Whole House Well Water Filter Iron
Aeration System for Iron & Hydrogen Sulfide
This whole house well water filter iron aeration system is a great choice for relatively low – but still levels of Iron & Hydrogen Sulfide you want to filter out. The main advantages of this system are the simplicity of design and no waste water, while highly effective.
Since this system is back-wash free, no Iron will be sent to your septic tank, which will extend the life of the septic system.
This unit is electricity-free, chemical-free & wastewater-free!
HOW IT WORKS
This Whole House Well Water Filter Iron system is a Venturi system that pulls oxygen into the water line as the water flows through. If your well’s Iron level is below 4 ppm & the pH is 6.8 or greater this Venturi System will provide sufficient aeration. An aeration pump & flow kit are not required for Iron levels within those parameters.
The injection of air will knock the Iron out of solution into physical particles (turning Ferrous Iron into Ferric Iron) that are easily caught by a simple sediment filter. The 5 Micron post-sediment filter can easily catch the ferric iron that precipitates out of the water. The post-sediment filter will need to be replaced every 3-6 months depending on water use and the level of Iron.
If Hydrogen Sulfide is also present, this will be off gassed via the air release valve. If Hydrogen Sulfide or Methane is present, you must run a section of air duct to the outdoors to avoid these gasses from building up.
This system ships for free. The main tank does not require replacement media.
Only the inexpensive post-filter needs replacing.
