This install was a system that was designed to remove iron from the well water.
The system comprises of air contact vessel which uses a compressor to force air into the water and then it passes through a sediment filter to remove the iron that has oxidised out of the water. The water then passes through a catalyst media to speed up the rest of the iron to drop out of the water. The whole system feeds a 1000l tank and we pumped the water to the house by a variable speed booster pump.
Is iron in water bad?
Over time iron in your water supply can cause discolouration and even affect laundry and crockery. The water can taste metallic and can even be detected in coffee and tea, etc. It can also darken drinks; food cooked in water containing iron can turn dark and may also absorb the metallic flavour.
