Our high capacity iron removal water softeners designed solely for water wells for flow rates from 15gpm up to 50gpm!
 

Pre-programmed valve

Are you tired of rust stains on your laundry, hard water scale & spots, orange/reddish iron staining, black/brownish manganese staining, or is hard well water causing your skin to feel dry, itchy, and irritated? Is your hair dry and brittle or is your hair color changing due to high iron? If so, the High Flow Iron Eater-125 whole house well water filter is for you!

Looking for a non-water softening high flow iron removal filter? See our Chemical-Free High Volume Iron Max

What makes our Iron Eater-125 Series so unique? Dual Adjustable Backwashes! There is an initial backwash set at 10 minutes (adjustable from 1- 99 minutes in the field) that loosens the resin column and discharges any debris collected on the top of the resin bed since the last regeneration. We then draw in the brine and rinse it through the resin in a downward flow. Brine causes the resin to swell and this often causes iron collected on the outside of each resin bead to break free in fine particles. Left alone, these particles can and do remain in the softener and can accumulate causing iron bleed through and sometimes a pressure drop. The Iron Eater-125 series, unlike virtually all other softeners, has a second adjustable time backwash which is factory set at 5 minutes (and field adjustable 1 - 99 minutes) to rid the system of these particles for the ultimate cleaning, softening and iron removal.

No Sodium Water Softener Option - The RainDance Iron Eater can also use Potassium-Based Water Softener Crystals instead of standard sodium softener crystals. So your water is not only soft, there's no added sodium!

    Q: Why is the Iron Eater our most popular well water treatment system?

    A: The Iron Eater offers high capacity iron filtration and softening with proven results.

    ONE OF THE WORST WELL WATER SAMPLES WE HAVE EVER SEEN! The unedited untouched photo below shows 2 unfiltered well water samples on the left and 2 filtered samples taken after the Iron Eater on the right. Result: Clear, usable water!

    Unfiltered Samples

    • Color: Dark Orange - Settled 75%
    • Iron 27ppm
    • Hardness; 11gpg
    • *Colloidal Iron
    • *Iron Bacteria

     Well Water Samples

     Iron Eater Filtered Samples

    • Color: Clear
    • Iron: 0.3ppm
    • Hardness: 0gpg

     

    *The Iron Eater is designed to treat ferrous and ferric iron. Because this well water also contained both iron bacteria and colloidal iron that will interfere with the overall performance and filtration of the Iron Eater it was suggested that an automatic chlorine feed and retention tank be added for additional treatment.

    Our renown Iron Eater-125 series utilizes specialized resin and iron filter media. The fineness of the resin creates a filter that is about 5x more effective than standard resins so it does a good job of ferric iron removal with polishing by the high iron filtration media. The effectiveness on ferrous iron is a function of resin kinetics: the more often and completely the water touches the resin, the more iron is removed. Kinetics in turn is a function of the surface area of the resin. The kinetics is equally important during regeneration. The brine is used more effectively thus the resin cleans better and uses the salt more efficiently. The same concept used for the ferrous iron applies to the removal of hardness.

    Best of all, the Iron Eater is as user-friendly as all other standard water softeners. Connect it to the main line of your home's plumbing, plug in the control valve to a nearby power outlet, and add softening pellets/water to the brine tank! Choose from our 15gpm22gpm30gpm, 40gpm, 50gpm whole house & light commercial dual purpose Iron Eater systems.
