We were initially interested in purchasing a water treatment solution for our home a couple of...
Any filter that removes one or more elements from water is called a Water Filter. The most common water filters are:
- ACTIVATED CARBON FILTRATION SYSTEMS
- CHEMICAL FREE IRON FILTRATION SYSTEMS
- MAGANESE AND GREENSAND FILTERS
- MULTIMEDIA FILTERS
- HYDROGEN SULPHIDE FILTERS
- NEUTRALIZING WATER FILTER SYSTEMS
- SODIUM REMOVAL FILTERS
- NITRATE FILTER
The sulphur removal system uses a galvanized tank (42 gallon provided).
The water is fed in the top and discharged out the bottom. As the water is fed in the top from your existing pump, an air pump that we provide injects air into the water stream just before the tank and helps keep a head of air in the top of the tank. This is where the sulphur gas is let out of the water. It stays in the air pocket in top of the tank until it gets to a level of about 1/3 of the way down where an air release valve (provided) lets the sulphur gas and some air out.
There are other gadgets like check valves, plastic tubing, a brass check valve, mounting bracket etc. that come with the kit. The really great thing about our system is; it is all done under pressure. No open vessels, no chlorine needed, no charcoal filter needed. The rotten egg odor that you smell in your water is a gas. This gas is only released when it meets air. That is why it is strong when it first comes out of your faucet. Our system gets rid of the gas in the tank before it gets to the house.
