Sure, Ozone is certainly an option, though it is costly to set up so it’s a lot less common than aeration or chemical oxidation. Do you have a storage tank you could use? Generally ozonation requires a decent amount of contact time and sufficient output in order to oxidize iron and manganese sufficiently, and it’s important to point out that the oxidation alone isn’t sufficient; you would still need to have a backwashing iron/manganese filter in-line to actually collect the oxidized rust particles. So it doesn’t really do away with the need for a backwashing system, though it could allow you to use a different type of system and avoid chemical regeneration.
Ozone treatment is elaborate and requires contact time, so if you don’t have a storage tank, you’ll need to set up a contact tank for contact time. We offer this complete package below to give you an idea of ozone system pricing for addressing high iron and manganese, see below:
POE10: 1.3Grams/Hour 1/2 Horsepower pump, 115 or 220 Volt:
The system includes a CD-10AD ozone generator with built-in air dryer; stainless steel re-circulation pump; contact vessel; injector manifold; delay timer; backflow prevention; recirculation loop; off-gas vent; and SCFH flow meter.
Construction of this unit allows for straight-forward installation and plumbing. A time delay unit is pre-installed to turn the system off after the well is off in the range of 15 seconds – 999 hours. Second option is POE 12, cost is $8,660.00, spec’s on each are below.
Dimensions: 68” Tall x 29” Wide x 29” deep. Contact tank is 30 gallons, plumbing connections are 1” NPT
