The Iron Plus water treatment technology is very unique and extremely green. This new technology gets totally away from chemical injections and treatment systems that require chemicals to backwash their media beds. The Iron Plus system we have been installing to take the place of the typical greensand system, which requires potassium permanganate to backwash the media bed. This is old technology and the cost of pot perm is very expensive and has to be introduced into the system every three months. Not only that, it is a highly toxic chemical used to backwash the greensand filter and extremely hard to find dealers that will carry the product. We have now been introduced to the Iron Plus oxygen generator technology which uses natural air to oxidize the media bed which removes the following:
H2S (hydrogen sulfide, rotten egg smell), 10ppm
Iron, up to 20 ppm
Manganese, 5 ppm
This media retains a higher flow rate with less pressure drop. It requires very little maintenance. This system does not require micronizers, venturis or any type of air injection system that can get plugged with mineral deposit from the raw water. The media bed will last between 10 and 15 years. pH does not affect the media bed with this system. Berm, which is another media used in oxygen regeneration, requires a high pH. Also, an added benefit is it requires no salt or chemicals to backwash the media bed. Backwash rates are extremely low and backwash times and water consumption are 1/4 of the typical time for a greensand filter.
We have installed many of these systems. The installations are very simple and the systems are absolutely trouble-free, with basically zero maintenance. An added benefit is that, because the air is introduced into the water, the water is enhanced with a lot of oxygen which is very good for your health. So as you can see, there are many benefits for this system.
