Precision Chlorination for Iron Bacteria Problem

Hello Dwight,

Thank you for contacting us through our website.  You wrote:

Do you have any questions?  How much iron do you have?  Do you have any filtration in place? These are the type of questions that need to be answered before we can provide a personalized system recommendation. However, here's a general recommendation I can give you for iron bacteria problems:
One very effective way to treat heavy iron, heavy manganese, and strong sulfur odors is with the use of the Precision chlorination injection system that you mentioned, and a contact Tank followed by a backwashing filter.  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, and then it could go through a backwashing iron filter.

Our best iron filter is the Pro-OX system.  Our 5900 series of professional-grade iron filter systems feature high-flow rates with a minimum of pressure loss and are completely automatic, very maintenance free.  Pro-OX Manganese Dioxide is an NSF Certified natural high purity mineral that is used for removing iron, hydrogen sulfide, and manganese from water supplies.
