Iron & Manganese Removal Systems
Iron is the most abundant mineral present in the earth’s crust and eventually, it makes way into your well water. Natural sources of iron and manganese are more common in deeper wells where the water has been in contact with rock for a longer time.
Hydrotech Water Services offers a permanent & cost-effective solution to remove high levels of iron & manganese, ensuring that your home is supplied with top-quality water. The iron & manganese removal filter is fitted to your mains supply and untreated water is passed through a vessel containing a specialist filtration media. This filters out the iron which is then flushed out of the vessel at night time ready for the next day.
The Problem with High Iron in Water
High iron content in water is one of the most frustrating & common problems for homeowners using a well as water source. High levels of iron and manganese in well water can lead to a host of issues that impact your daily life. These minerals are notorious for causing:
Tough Brown Stains
Water with excessive iron or manganese may appear colourless initially but it quickly oxidizes to leave orange-brown or black particles. As a result your laundry, bathroom fixtures, and toilet bowls can bear the unsightly marks of these minerals.
Even the slight presence of these minerals can leave a metallic aftertaste in drinking water. In higher concentration, the water is simply undrinkable.
Low Water Pressure
Iron and manganese can build up in pipes, leading to clogs that reduce water pressure, making daily activities a frustrating endeavour.
High levels of iron and manganese in your water supply can pose health risks. While iron is an essential mineral, excessive intake can lead to health problems such as abdominal pain and headaches. High concentrations of manganese ingested over the long term have been shown to cause toxicity to nervous systems in humans.
