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 an iron removal system 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 physically show itself in the water, thereby allowing us to filtrate it more successfully.
1. 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.
2. 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.
SpringSoft have vast experience in guiding our customers through this process successfully. Our grants page has more information here!
