Do You Have Iron in Your Water?

This page describes the filter I use to remove iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide from well water

Remove Iron, Manganese, Hydrogen Sulfide

Iron Removal System by Sweetwater LLC

Call me before you use any chemical treatments to remove iron from well water!


My iron water filters use all natural processes to remove iron from well water and also remove manganese, and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odors).  In order to correctly prescribe the iron water filter, I will need to know how much iron is in your water as well as several other factors that affect the water treatment chemistry.  If you have iron in water but don't know how much, we'll use a water test to determine the levels of iron in water and then use my all natural system to remove iron from water.

Well filtration system for iron, manganese, tannin, hardness and coliform bacteria

Iron in water is often accompanied by manganese, low pH (see my acid neutralizer page), and hydrogen sulfide odors.  I try not to use chemicals to remove iron from well water.  My natural system to remove iron from water relies on ozone to oxidize the iron into rust and then a backwashing filter that will raise pH and remove the oxidized iron and remove manganese up to two ppm.  The filter media consists entirely of natural materials. The system pictured above uses chlorine to oxidize iron and manganese and to kill coliform bacteria. That's followed by a backwashing filter to remove those oxidized contaminants and then a water softener for hardness and tannin removal.

Pricing: 2 cu ft. AIO3 Water Filter for Iron: $2471. plus shipping

This is the base system and additional treatment may be required (as pictured above) depending on the severity of your problem or if you have severe levels of hydrogen sulfide odors.

The advanced AIO3 iron filter uses ozone to oxidize the contaminants and a katalox media to filter out the oxidiized solids. If you'd like to remove iron from water, be sure to inquire about the natural methods used by my iron water filter to remove iron from well water.

It's best if you can email your well water test and then follow up with a phone call. If you don't have a water test, I can provide those here.
