Iron Water Filters

Eliminate Stains, Metallic Taste and Corrosion with Iron Water Filtration System

Iron is not hazardous. In fact, its role in transporting oxygen through the blood stream makes it essential to good health.

The U.S. Department of Natural Resources categorizes iron as a secondary or “aesthetic” water contaminant. However, high levels of iron also:

  • Dramatically affect the taste and smell of water.
  • Stain laundry and household fixtures such as showers, tubs and sinks.
  • Contribute to hard-water effects that may shorten the life of appliances like dishwashers and hot water tanks.

Its two main forms include soluble (or ferrous) iron – which is, by far, the more common type found in water – and insoluble (or ferric) iron. For some homes, a Clearwater Systems whole-house water softener can handle iron removal. However, when iron levels are elevated (usually above 0.3 mg/liter), an additional Clearwater Systems iron water filter may be necessary.

However, before purchasing any type of filter, it’s essential to get a qualified water analysis from a dependable source like Clearwater Systems to determine the proper technology to guarantee total removal. Contact Clearwater Systems to schedule a free water analysis.
