Iron & Odour Removing FiltersIron is commonly found in rocks and soil throughout the world. Under the proper conditions, iron will leach into the water supply from the rock and soil formations. If iron is present in the water where concentrations exceed 0.3 ppm, staining can occur. This staining can affect plumbing fixtures, dish ware, clothes, and will produce a yellow to reddish appearance in water. These levels may also impart taste and/or odor. The EPA has established a secondary drinking water regulation of 0.3 ppm of water. This is not federally enforceable, since it is not considered a health risk.
Combining a filtration system with your water conditioner is your easiest, most convenient way to further improve the taste, smell, clarity and overall quality of your water. Depending on the filtering media you use, a good quality filtration system will eliminate objectionable tastes and odours; remove chlorine along with precipitated iron and manganese. It will decrease turbidity - that unappealing cloudiness caused by suspended particles of mud, silt, clay, sand, grit and sediment.

Our products include:
Manganese Greensand Iron Filters
This type of Iron Filter is used for the removal of dissolved iron, red water iron, manganese and hydrogen sulphide (H2S) from your water supply. It effectively removes disagreeable tastes and odours from your water and prevents staining of plumbing and fixtures.Potassium Permanganate (Pot Perm) is used to oxidize the Greensand media during the regeneration or cleaning of the filter. This causes the iron in your water to turn to a solid state, when passing through the filter. The iron gets trapped in the media and then is flushed down the drain during the Backwash cycle of the regeneration. Pot Perm can be obtainable from BRM Water Conditioning.
Birm Iron Filters
Nexsand Sediment Filters
A sediment filter is the most common method or removing suspended solids, total dissolved solids (TDS), Ferric Hydroxide (Red Water Iron) or Sediment from your well or water system. The water passes through a clean bed of well-graded Nexsand, where it is filtered down to 5 Microns of filtration. The filter is then backwashed on a regular basis flushing the sediment down the drain. Nexsand has proven extremely effective and will double the service flow of Multi Media or Sand Filters.
This self flushing filter has an Activated Carbon Media and is used extensively for the removal of organic materials, chlorine, and Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S).The contaminants are absorbed by the carbon particles, therefore periodic replacement is necessary.
If you are in an area of high chlorine levels or periodically experience excess chlorine odour or taste, we may have what you are looking for! Most cartridge-type carbon filters are just too small to properly remove chlorine throughout the home and can cause pressure loss and low flow rates. Instead of frequent cartridge changes, these systems backwash and clean themselves automatically.
