To effectively filter iron from well water the water must go through a process called oxidation. Oxidation simply puts the iron in a solid form where it can be removed from the water.
There are two ways to achieve oxidation.
- The first uses harsh chemicals such as chlorine.
- The second uses oxygen from the air we breathe. We prefer to use oxygen as a safe and natural way to remove iron. The filter in the photo is using oxidation to remove iron from the system.
