Iron problems in bore water


Iron staining is a very common complaint from many bores in many areas. We find this a common complaint from some sand spears on the Gold Coast in QLD. Iron becomes a problem when it oxidises into iron oxide (ie. rust!), ie. the water normally comes out of the ground fairly clear, and later it either changes colour or it forms little orange/red "fuzzy" bits that generally sink to the bottom. Either way, this can cause unsightly staining of both porous and fairly impervious materials. It can also cause blockages of drippers and sprinkler outlets. We have very effective treatments for iron in bore waters that causes staining, using a combination of magnetic water conditioning, aeration and filtration.

In many cases, we find that the magnetic water conditioners prevent the iron from sticking and binding, and the problem goes away. But in more severe cases, and when dealing with very porous materials (stonework, porous concrete, timber fences), inside-the-house applications, and for filling swimming pools, it becomes necessary to actually remove the iron from the water.

We also have very effective chemical treatments for iron bacteria in bores, and for cleaning out the slime and buildup that results from iron bacteria.

Iron Removal

We have a very effective treatment and removal system for iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell) which uses ozone and filtration. It's extremely effective, and it's simple to install and to operate.

Please CONTACT US for further information on both the iron treatment and filtration systems, and for iron bacteria control chemicals.

And remember that we need a WATER TEST from you to work out exactly what you need.

Pure Water
Ozone System
The system is capable of treating very bad waters, and the end result is the cleanest water you could ever hope for. No colour. No smell. It's a very easy system to install and to operate, and it's cheap and safe because it's completely natural!

Acidic Water
Treatments
Our acid treatment systems use calcite as media to raise the pH balance to above 7.0. Works with pH balances as low as 5.0. Calcite is an alkaline mineral, which acts as a sacrificial media to reduce acidicty in water.

Drinking Water
Treatments
We carry a range of drinking water solutions to make your water safe!

Ultraviolet (UV) systems as a total minimal-maintenance system that is installed inline to sterilise water completely. All microorganisms, ie. bacteria, fungi, viruses and algae are destroyed on contact with ultraviolet. Much easier than chlorinating, and without that swimming-pool taste.
