If the permissible level of 0.3 mg/l is exceeded, special purification is required.
Water that contains too much iron causes allergies and can lead to blood diseases.
Iron in water leads to the stubborn stains on washed clothes, tiles and white plumbing.
Iron-containing water leads to bacterial growth and causes corrosion of parts of the household appliances: washing machines, steam cookers, mixers and electric kettles. High concentration of iron in water negatively affects the looks and well-being of a person using it: teeth and skin turn yellow, hair color fades, digestive disorders appear.
If there is too much iron, there will be a reddish sediment, the water will have a yellow tint and unpleasant metallic taste.
Most often, water contains dissolved iron. It oxidizes and then forms a sediment which is easy to remove.
Undissolved, or colloidal iron in water is also quite common. The finest iron particles neither form a sediment nor can be removed by most pre-filters. A combination of ion exchange filters and pre-filters is used to remove iron in this form.
We recommend WaterBoss systems to remove iron and hardness salts from water.
They soften water and remove iron from it, provided that the concentration of hardness salts does not exceed 24 mg/l, for iron max. is 10 mg/l. Household appliances work longer without failures in soft water.
Iron and manganese can be effectively removed with WaterMax iron removers. They eliminate iron, hardness salts, manganese, nitrates and organic impurities. Bakteristat technology applied in the filter prevents bacteria from growth.
After treatment with WaterMax filter, water can be used for showering and washing dishes. To make it potable, we recommend buying and installing a drinking water machine or a reverse osmosis system.
After removal of solid particles, iron and hardness salts, water can be turned into potable using reverse osmosis systems and drinking water machines.
For example, AQUAPHOR RO-101S Morion filter removes bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, pesticides and organic impurities. After passing through it, water can be safely used the for baby food preparation.
To remove rust and other mechanical impurities, we recommend using pre-filters.
Pre-filter AQUAPHOR Gross with a polypropylene cartridge eliminates rust, sand, silt and other undissolved particles over 10 microns.
