Iron Removal

Iron Removal

Iron Removal

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.

Replenish Air

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.

Awesome Family-Owned Business




Review of Barrett's Soft Water

The customer service received during the consultation and contract stages was amazing. The price was very reasonable and time for install surpassed my expectations. During the install the workers were extremely courteous and thorough. They even stayed late to finish up and the work looks amazing. They then reached out to me the next day just to see how everything was going and if we were enjoying our new water filtration system. Best service I could have asked for. Highly recommended!!!

Great service on a Bad well




Review of Barrett's Soft Water

We have a shallow well with very high iron content. We rent a hydrogen peroxide water filter and water softener. Barrett’s has been amazing in servicing our equipment over the years. They guided us over many repairs as we replaced old pipes to get good water flow and pressure. Special thanks to Ryan, the tech and Pat, in the office for your patience with a difficult water system!
