Well Water Treatment for High Iron Content

I recently bought this home and the water system is broken, when the water was tested, high iron content was found. There is a filter that is not working from what the other company said.
I need to have filtered water to remove the iron to make is safe for pets as well as myself.  


Hi Max,
 It is important to have your well water tested first, before you choose a solution.  If you need a low cost well water test kit, we recommend this one:

One excellent long-lasting and highly effective iron filter is the Iron Filter 5900e AIR.  This iron filter uses natural air to oxidize the iron and remove odors and does not require any chemicals.   This type of iron filter maintains an “air pocket” in the top of the tank while the system is in service.  When the iron filter is backwashed, air is drawn into the iron filter tank which creates a pocket of air at the top of the tank. As water enters the iron filter it passes through this layer of air and air is diffused into the water.

As the water passes thru the air pocket, iron and sulfur are oxidized.

·        Additionally, dissolved oxygen is added to the water.
·        The Pro-OX solid manganese dioxide filter media bed then removes the iron and sulfur from the water.
·        The Pro-OX 5900 AIR can remove up to 5 ppm Hydrogen Sulfide and up to 10 ppm Iron.
·        A daily backwash will remove accumulated iron and replenish the filter media bed.
·        The regeneration process also adds a fresh air pocket to the system.
