Residential Iron Filtration
And Well Water Filter Systems
- If you have a well water analysis
and would like help in choosing one of our iron filters
or well water filters please fax
information to 760-896-6999 Attention: RainDance Water Systems
Systems is a leading well water filter company providing water
treatment solutions, information and technical support for all
filtration water treatment products and equipment. Many websites
claim to be water treatment "specialist" and offer
filters at "rock bottom wholesale prices" However,
we have discovered that very few water treatment companies have
the knowledge, ability or the equipment selection to effectively
treat your well water problems. We consider iron, manganese and
hydrogen sulfide removal to be our specialty. Please continue
on to see how easily we can solve your water related iron problems.
Free water testing. RainDance
Water Systems offers free water testing to their customers. Well
owners are encouraged to send pre and post water samples to our
facility once a year. This free service is offered for as long
as you own you well water filter.
Well filtration improves both
the taste and quality of your water. Our whole house systems
filter iron, manganese as well as objectionable odors and sediment.
Water conditioners are also available to provide soft iron free
These point of entry systems
provide filtration at every tap in your home. Iron filters from
RainDance Water Systems protect showers, bathtubs, toilets, washing
machines and dishwashers.
The presence of Iron is a very
common water quality problem, particularly in water from deep
wells. Water containing even a significant quantity of iron may
appear clear when drawn, but will rapidly turn red upon exposure
to air. This process is called oxidation, and involves the conversion
of ferrous (dissolved) iron, which is highly soluble, to ferric
(precipitated) iron, which is largely insoluble. The ferric iron
then causes red/brown staining on clothes, fixtures, etc.
Iron concentration is measured in ppm or mg/l (milligrams
per liter, where 1 ppm = 1 mg/l). Staining usually becomes a
problem at concentrations greater than 0.3 ppm.
Manganese is a metal similar to iron which causes
a grey/black stain. It can cause staining in concentrations as
low as 0.05 ppm.
Hydrogen Sulfide is a gas which smells strongly like
rotten eggs. It results from the decay of organic matter with
organic sulphur and the presence of certain types of bacteria.
Even very low concentrations are offensive as well as highly
corrosive (silver tarnishes almost immediately upon contact with
Because it is in a gaseous form,
H2S cannot be collected in a sample bottle for laboratory analysis.
Therefore, its presence must be reported when a sample is submitted
for a treatment recommendation.
Low pH Water which contains excess acidity tends to act
aggressively towards plumbing and fixtures, causing corrosion
and staining (i.e.-blue green stains on fixtures from copper
pipes). Relative acidity/alkalinity is measured on the pH scale,
ranging from 0- 1 4, where 7 is neutral, numbers lower than 7
are progressively more acidic, and numbers higher than seven
are increasingly alkaline (basic). The pH value refers not to
the quantity of acidity, but rather to the relative acidity/alkalinity
of a particular sample.
Alkalinity acts as a buffer to
deactivate the acidity, a process called neutralization. For
example, limestone (calcium carbonate) is often applied to soil
to offset the acidity which comes from acid rain and decaying
organic material. The acceptable range for water is 6.5-8.5.
Iron bacteria is generally more common than sulfur
bacteria, simply because iron is abundant in ground water. Iron
bacteria are "oxidizing agents." That is, they combine
iron or manganese dissolved in ground water with oxygen. A side
effect of the process is a foul smelling brown slime which can
coat well screens, pipes, and plumbing fixtures. This slime isn't
a health hazard, but it can cause unpleasant odors, corrode plumbing
equipment, and clog well screens and pipes. If conditions are
right, the bacteria can grow at amazing rates. There are several
signs that may indicate an iron bacteria problem. Water may have
a yellow, red or orange color. Rusty slime deposits may form
in toilet tanks. A strange smell resembling fuel oil, cucumbers,
or sewage may be noticeable. Sometimes the odor will only be
apparent in the morning or after other extended periods of non-use.
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS)
Total dissolved solids
(TDS) comprise inorganic salts such as potassium, sodium, bicarbonates,
chlorides and sulfates and some small amounts of organic matter
that are dissolved in water. High levels of total dissolved solids
can result in your water having a bitter or salty taste (brackish
water); result in incrustations, films, or precipitates on fixtures;
and corrosion of fixtures.
To make it easy for you, we have
created whole house well water and iron treatment packages to
solve your well related water problems. Our well filters below
have been designed to effectively remove the iron, iron bacteria,
manganese, sulfur, sulfur reducing bacteria, and correct acidic
water (low pH).
