Iron Filters for Residential Use in MI
High levels of iron turn water a reddish-brown hue that discolors sinks, tubs, and fixtures and gives water a metallic taste and smell. Water with a high iron concentration often has elevated levels of manganese and sulfur (hydrogen sulfide) and is more prone to overgrowth of harmful bacteria.
The Effects of Low and High Iron Concentrations in Residential Water Supplies
Water pipe corrosion is a common source of iron contamination, though old water wells can also be a source of the problem. While low levels of iron are not harmful, it is considered a contaminant when present in drinking water.
In addition to promoting bacterial growth, high levels of iron can have serious health effects and damage skin cells. Water with high iron content also stains clothing, changes the taste of food and beverages, and causes blockages in pipes.
Removing iron requires the installation of a whole house water softener or iron filtration system. Residential iron filters remove high concentrations of dissolved and precipitated iron and come in potassium permanganate and chemical-free options.
Installing a water filter keeps iron content at healthy levels and eliminates issues with odor, bacteria, and staining. Get started by requesting an appointment for a free consultation and water test to determine the source and severity of your problem.
Residential Water Treatment for Iron Removal
Tired of scrubbing unsightly iron stains from every appliance and fixture in your home? Tired of taking the beautiful, shiny finish off all your fixtures, bathtub, and shower walls with harsh cleaning products? The solution is simple, purchase or rent an iron filter system from Canney’s Water Conditioning, Inc.
Iron concentrations as low as 0.3ppm can stain your sinks and plumbing fixtures. Our iron filtration systems can remove up to 15 parts per million of iron and remove hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg odor) from well water supplies.
We offer chemical-free iron filters and potassium permanganate water filters for residential applications. All our iron filters are available for purchase or rental. If you aren’t sure which type of filter is right for your home, let our team help you make an informed decision.
Chemical-free Iron Filters
Chemical-free iron filtration systems use air instead of chemicals to oxidize iron and other minerals into solid particles, which are then removed from the water. The naturally aspirated air induction system draws air into a mineral tank for oxidation and iron removal. After purification, the clean water is delivered throughout your home.
These iron filtration systems feature a one-inch riser to deliver increased flow rates and water meters with Wi-Fi enabled technology to monitor water use and provide automatic service reminders.
Potassium Permanganate Water Filters
Potassium permanganate water filters contain a dry chemical solid that oxidizes dissolved iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide into solid particles that are easily filtered from domestic water supplies. These iron water filters can also be installed in wells to control bacteria growth.
It is important to note that potassium permanganate iron filters require regular calibration and maintenance and should not be exposed to extreme temperatures.
