Iron Removal

How it works and how SpringSoft can help you.

Firstly iron removal from private wells, when the level of iron is very high, can be a tricky process.

If you have low levels of iron in the water it can be treated in much the same way as you would treat for limescale and at a relatively low cost.

When considering iron removal when the levels are very high there is often need for another stage or two pre-filtration. When attempting iron removal at a high level you must aerate the water in order for oxygen to be introduced.

This simply means that by allowing air in you are allowing the iron to oxidise and physical show itself in the water, thereby allowing us to filtrate it more successfully.

Step 1
The first step for you if you are considering an iron removal system is to have you water tested by an accredited lab. You can organise to have this done yourself or get in touch and we can organise it for you.

If you are organising yourself the test itself should cost you anywhere between €120-€180 depending on the lab you use and the tests you require. Feel free to get in touch with us if you need further advice. We operate on a no obligation basis and are happy to provide you with any advice you need.
Step 2
Once you have your water tested you will need to have it analysed by somebody with experience in treating for iron removal.

Our SpringSoft engineers are happy to do so and again we operate on a no obligation policy. We will take a look at your test results and give you free advice on what system you require based on the results of your water test. Each case of iron removal will require a system capable of handling the specific level of iron prevalent in your water supply.
Step 3
Ensure the company you choose has a knowledge of the level of iron in your water – if they did not ask you for this it is very unlikely they understand your need and could  suggest an unsuitable iron removal system.

You may be eligible for a Grant, from your local county council, for an iron removal system if you are on a private well and meet certain requirements.
