If you live Carp, Ontario rural areas, you already know that iron can leave rust stains on sinks, tubs, toilets, clothing and linens. It can also, in some cases, form scale and clog plumbing in water using appliances while making water turn brown as well as smell and taste bad. Iron or rusty water is usually created when ground water passes through iron-bearing rocks. It’s important to know, however, that there is more than one type of iron predicament. In fact iron comes in various forms, which means that the typically recommended “one size fits all” systems, offered by many water treatment providers, may or may not offer the correct solution for your specific water issues. Generally, 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 a tailored solution, 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 suite of tools will result in odor and bacteria free water that actually tastes good 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, because once the water becomes exposed to air, it will change form. pH is one of the most critical elements in controlling the efficacy of the equipment used for iron reduction.
Turning water yellowish and leaving stains in tubs, sinks and toilets Tannins can be problematic. The worst part is that they bind up organically with iron making the removal process more complicated. Nelson Water offers a customized solution, which will typically include a chemical injection system using a coagulant that brings together the dissolved organic matter into clumps that can be filtered out, followed by a retention tank, a turbidity filter and lastly a carbon filter to eliminate any leftover taste from your rural well water supply. When the tannin is not bound up with iron, Nelson Water uses an ion exchange system similar to a softener. In this case, exchanging the tannin ions for sodium, rather than calcium or magnesium ions.
That recognizable rotten egg odor in your water is due to hydrogen sulfide gas. This is a common problem in many of the rural wells throughout the Carp area. When hydrogen sulfide is dissolved in water, it causes that unpleasant rotten egg odor and cloudiness. Additionally, gasses dissolved in your water can be damaging to your plumbing system, as they cause excess wear and tear on washers, valves and seats and often cause severe corrosion to the actual copper pipes and brass fittings. Nelson Water uses numerous 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, designed to remove manganese (which leaves 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 unit. In severe cases of iron, hydrogen sulfide or manganese, Nelson Water Nelson Water offers a specifically customized solution, which will typically 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 odor from your rural well water supply.
In some areas of Carp, Ontario, specifically the areas of the former Champlain Sea, Nelson Water has a successful track record of eliminating sodium from well water supplies. The former Champlain Sea area 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 very corrosive on copper, brass and other metallic plumbing fixtures and water using appliances. By using a light commercial WHRO (Whole House Reverse Osmosis System) Nelson Water is able to filter and deliver high quality, great tasting sodium free water.
