If you reside in or near Carleton Place, Ontario you already know that iron can leave rust stains on sinks, tubs, toilets, clothing and linens. It can also, in many circumstances, form scale and clog plumbing in water using appliances while making water turn brown as well as smell and taste bad. Rusty/Iron water is characteristically created when ground water passes through iron-bearing rocks. It’s important to know, however, that there is more than one type of iron problem.
Iron, in fact, comes in a variety of forms, which means that any “one size fits all” systems, offered by a great many water treatment brands, may or may not offer the correct solution for your specific water issues.
Normally, a water-softening device will only remove the “ferrous” or Fe2 type of iron. Unfortunately, once the iron has become bonded with any organics in the water, this type of device will have virtually no effect. Nelson Water offers tailored solutions, which will typically include a chemical injection system, followed by a retention tank, a turbidity filter and lastly a carbon filter to eliminate any iron and or sulfur bacteria content from your rural well water supply. This set of tools delivers odour and bacteria free water that actually tastes great with no chlorine residual or aftertaste. The only way to implement the correct solution is through the testing of the actual water, which must be done at the site, before water becomes exposed to air and changes form. pH is one of the most critical elements in controlling the effectiveness of the equipment used for iron reduction.
Besides leaving a yellowish tinge to water and stains on sinks, tubs and toilets, Tannins tend to bind up organically with iron, making the process much more complicated. Knowing this, Nelson Water offers a customized solution, which will include a chemical injection system using a coagulant that brings together the dissolved organic matter into clumps that can be more easily filtered out, followed by a retention tank, a turbidity filter and lastly a carbon filter to eliminate any leftover taste in your rural well water supply. Nelson Water also employs, when the tannin is not bound up with iron, an ion exchange system similar to how a softener works, exchanging the tannin ions for sodium, rather than calcium or magnesium ions.
That noxious rotten egg odour in your water is typically due to gas. Hydrogen sulfide gas more often than not. This is a problem common to many rural wells throughout the Carleton Place region. When hydrogen sulfide is dissolved in water, it causes that unpleasant rotten egg odour and cloudiness. Additionally, gasses dissolved in water can be detrimental to your plumbing system, as they cause excess wear on washers, valves and seats as well as causing severe corrosion to the actual copper pipes and brass fittings. Nelson Water uses a host of proprietary protocols to ensure that hydrogen sulfide gas is eliminated from well water supplies. Using the ETF AIV-10 air-aspirated iron and sulfur filter, which also removes manganese (known to leave terrible black stains everywhere) the ETF AIV-10 has the ability of oxidizing the sulfur, iron and manganese into a precipitate which is filtered out by the media bed in the ETF AIV-10. In severe cases of iron, hydrogen sulfide or manganese, Nelson Water offers a tailored solution, which will include a chemical injection system using chlorine or hydrogen peroxide followed by a retention tank, a turbidity filter and lastly a carbon filter to eliminate any remaining any taste or odour from your rural well water supply.
In some areas of the greater Ontario region, specifically the areas of the former Champlain Sea, Nelson Water has a successful track record of eliminating sodium from well water supplies in Carleton Place. The former Champlain Sea was a temporary inlet of the Atlantic Ocean created by the retreating glaciers during the end of the last ice age. The Sea once included lands in what are now the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. These areas, as former salt water basins, are rich in sodium chloride which in turn, like sea water is exceptionally corrosive on copper, brass and other metallic plumbing fixtures and water using appliances. By using a light commercial Whole House Reverse Osmosis System (WHRO) Nelson Water is able to filter and deliver high quality, great tasting sodium free water.
Final barrier protection, for private wells, is the responsibility of the homeowner. Nelson Water can offer innovative treatment systems to address critical water issues found in rural well water, like lead contamination, toxic chemicals (from manufacturing and agricultural runoff) as well as naturally occurring uranium and radon. Nelson Water has a 30-year track record of effectively removing these dangerous contaminants from Carleton Place, Ontario well water. Although the instrument of choice, in these applications, is typically a three-stage reverse osmosis system, (the EcoWater ERO 375) there are also types of nutshell carbon (e.g. coconut shell) that can be effective. Nelson Water offers unsurpassed technical capabilities, particularly in managing the removal of toxic chemicals and the abatement of any meaningful levels of uranium /radon which are common in the rural area of Carleton Place, Ontario.

Although Carleton Place does a great job at providing potable water, the municipality actually adds fluoride, which is technically a chemical designed to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is a controversial substance, but there is scientific evidence that there may be health issues associated (both positive and negative) with the chemical. As a homeowner you have the option remove it as it enters your own home if you so desire. Nelson Water typically uses the ERO 375 Reverse Osmosis System, which is the same technology used to produce commercially bottled water.
