Filtration Capabilities

Research conducted on well water across the country has found out that the common contaminants in the majority of well systems are iron, sulfur, and manganese. These three are responsible for stains on your laundry and appliances, bad odors in water, and taste problems. The first step to ensure that you get pure and healthy water from well is to install a filter that fights against them. This system can remove a maximum of 8 PPM hydrogen sulfide, which is responsible for rotten egg smell from your water. It is also effective against iron concentration up to 7 PPM, thus eliminating the orange and brown stains on laundry and crockery. It captures manganese up to 1 PPM, which causes odors and colors from water.

Filtration Stages

The system uses 4 stages to provide you with excellent results. The 4-stages of filtration are explained below

Stage 1: Oxidization – When water passes through an air pocket at the top of the tank, iron, sulfur, and manganese is oxidized to facilitate its removal.

Stage 2: Trapping Stage – In the second stage, the oxidized contaminants are trapped in the bed of green sand fusion.

Stage 3: Backwashing Stage – The trapped contaminants are washed out of the system to regenerate the air pocket and continue the filtration process. The system makes use of an Empress Vortech Tank for fast and thorough cleaning of the filtration bed.

Stage 4: Pure Water Supply – The treated water is supplied to your whole house.
