Iron Filtration

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.
