Iron, a naturally occuring mineral, combined with groundwater, dissolves into water through surrounding rocks. According to the EPA, iron in your water does not create a health hazard, but it can create an unpleasant taste. Too much iron in your water can also turn water into a rusty-red color when coming from your water faucet. In addition to discoloration and unpleasant taste, iron can create scale, deposits of iron in your pipes, and can block water flow and potentially damage your hot water tank. Iron deposits can also stain your laundry a yellow, orange or brown color.
Harmful Iron Removal
To remove iron, iron removal systems and filters do the job best. Iron removal filters store a bubble of air in your well system within the media tank. As water passes through the air, the iron or sulfur is converted into a particle which is trapped by filters within the tank as the air bubble is slowly consumed by the passing water. Removing the iron happens in the regeneration state, when your unit backwashes itself which removes any iron and sulfur particles that were trapped.
Once the process is completed, the system will replenish the air bubble by drawing from atmosphere and temporarily emptying the tank of water, transferring oxygen molecules into and on the surface of the media bed where all oxidation occurs.

First time on well or even needing a water softener in the past and took the time to explain everything so I could understand what was going on. Quick to replace and install everything we needed and took the extra time to go through the new equipment so I understood everything. Very appreciative of the work and personal attention Tony gave us in our new house.

We were recommended Barrett’s from our plumber and he was spot on with it. Very happy with the service, quick response and install. They are very knowledgeable and would not have to worry about any issues if they were to arise. Local company serving the local community. Definitely the way to go. Thank you Ryan and Tony.
