Iron & Manganese Removal

Iron and manganese are commonly found in water. They will lead to unsightly staining and can cause health problems.

Catalytic oxidation is a tried and tested method of oxidising the iron and manganese and forming a precipitate which is retained in the filter until backwashed to drain. This method is useful if certain criteria are met, if not then alternatives such as ion exchange by specialist media can then be considered.

Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) filters are an excellent choice for removal of chlorine, taste and odour, or organics in water. Some types will even reduce metals. There are many variations but most based on coconut, coal, wood or bone.
