One of the most common contaminants of well and even municipal water systems is iron. Iron contamination can be found in two general forms, ferric iron which consists of particles of solid iron (rust) that can be removed by mechanical water filters (sediment filters), and ferrous or dissolved iron which must be removed from water by special iron water filters.In addition to causing an unpleasant metallic taste, iron in drinking and household water can cause unsightly staining of plumbing fixtures and laundry.
Unfortunately, most whole house water filter systems designed for the removal of iron from water are relatively expensive and require significant user-monitoring and maintenance. purchase and operate on an ongoing basis. After an exhaustive search, we found a specialty iron reduction filter cartridge designed to remove light to moderate ferrous iron levels from water.
If your iron content is no more than 3ppm, you can easily remove it with our Iron Reduction filter cartridge installed BEFORE your Scale Reduction Equipment. Our Iron Water Filter cartridge system effectively removes iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide! (rotten egg smell) from municipal or well water.
Iron content over 5 ppm iron (or about 2 ppm hydrogen sulfide) requires a better filtration system. This is where our Iron Filter should be used.
