Iron Filters For Well Water Users, Farms, Irrigation, & Livestock Water Systems:   

Iron and manganese in the amounts found in most drinking waters are not harmful to health. The secondary drinking water standards of 0.3 milligram per liter for iron and 0.05 milligram per liter for manganese are set to indicate problems of taste, staining, and cloudiness.

Manganese is one of a small group of chemicals (including iron, copper and a few others) that reaches an undesirable level due to taste, odor, or color before it becomes a health hazard. For this reason, health-based guidelines for these chemicals are usually not available. Instead, secondary or "aesthetic" MCLs have been promulgated by the U.S. EPA. These "SMCLs" are not formally adopted by the state and thus are not legally enforceable. However, exceeding the SMCL usually means that the water is undesirable for human consumption. The SMCL for manganese is 0.05 mg/l.

The existence of an SMCL for a chemical does not preclude that chemical being present in water at a level that would be a health concern if consumed. Consumption of water containing large amounts of manganese has been documented to cause adverse health effects in a few cases. Because of the large amounts of wells being found in the state with high manganese levels, and because some people apparently consume water containing levels much higher than the SMCL, it was determined that a guideline for protection of public health was necessary in addition to the existing SMCL

Iron, unfortunately, is a major problem the world over because over 5% of the earth’s crust is made up of it and, as a result, it seeps into some well water supplies. While not normally being a health risks, it does have a number of undesirable characteristics such as:

  • Iron in water can cause yellow, red, or brown stains on laundry, dishes, and plumbing fixtures such as sinks
  • Iron can clog wells, pumps, sprinklers, and other devices such as dishwashers, which can lead to costly repairs
  • Iron gives a metallic taste to water, and can affect foods and beverages - turning tea, coffee, and potatoes black
  • Iron is particularly problematic when washing white clothes which may result in them turning into an orange brown color.

We have a range of filters that will deal with varying amounts of iron in the water and will remove the effect and color of iron in the water. There are a wide ranges of Iron Max filters that will deal with the problem. These are self-maintaining units, which do not add anything to the water (no chemicals or salt) but remove that undesirable brown/orange tint.
