Chlorination for Dangerous Manganese Levels

Hello Peter,

Thank you for contacting us through our website.  You wrote:
“I have a large house in Little Compton, RI (10 bathrooms, 2 dishwashers, two washing machines, indoor lap pool, etc...) that has dangerous levels of Manganese (0.779 mg/L versus state MCL of o.o5 mg/L). Our well flows 20 gallons per minute. We filter out sediments.“

For handling this rather high volume of water like what your large house system demands, we recommend treating your water with chlorine, followed by a pair of 2.5 CF Pro-OX iron filter systems in parallel.  
This system also provides disinfection, providing you with clean water, void of bacterial contamination.  The chlorine would then feed into either a contact Tank or an inline mixer to provide enough time and contact for the solution to react with the sulfur, iron and bacteria in the water.
