Depending on how much iron is in your water will determine what kind of an iron filter you need, all of our systems are very cost-effective and you might want to read about how to determine which Well Water Iron Filter you need on our blog page HERE.
It's important to understand that if you have iron in your water and you are replacing your water softener with a new Hard Water Bullet or any of our Salt-Free Water Conditioners, you will need to address the iron otherwise you will have staining, you will see it in toilet bowls first and it could damage your new system. Your old water softener was able to remove up to .5 ppm of iron, and this is why you may not have noticed it when you had the softener. One of the most common contaminants of a well and even municipal water system 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 of chemicals 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. To see where your iron level currently sits, we strongly recommend that you have your water tested. Filter Water Direct has the equipment to Remove Iron From Water.
