The RainDance "Iron Max Plus" Catalog & Selection Guide 


Do You Have Iron Bacteria?
Does your well water leave red stains in the sinks and bathtubs? have unpleasant swampy tastes or oily smells? do you notice red, slimy growths in the toilet tank? If so, your well or water system may have iron bacteria.

Iron bacteria are small living organisms that naturally occur in soil, surface and groundwater. These nuisance bacteria combine iron or manganese with oxygen to form deposits of "rust," bacterial cells, and slimy materials that stick to well casings, pumps, pipes, plumbing fixtures, irrigation system and water appliances often damaging them.

Iron bacteria can be orange, brown, or red in color. Sometimes it floats in the water like orange algae and sometimes you may notice an orange slime that coats the inside the toilet tank that can be wiped off with a finger. You may also notice an oily sheen on the water surface. Iron bacteria often produce unpleasant tastes and odors commonly reported as: "swampy," "oily," "cucumber," "sewage," "rotten vegetation," or "musty." The taste or odor may be more noticeable if the water is stagnant for some time. Iron bacteria does not produce hydrogen sulfide, the "rotten egg" smell, but can create an environment where sulfur bacteria can grow and produce hydrogen sulfide.

The Iron Max Plus Series is our highest performance well water treatment system able to tackle some of well water's most difficult problems. This combination of systems can treat up to 50ppm ferrous iron (clear water iron), ferric iron (red/orange when drawn), iron bacteria, up to 15ppm manganese, up to 10ppm hydrogen sulfide gas odors, sulfur reducing bacteria, tannins, up to 10ppm and sediment down to 3-5 microns.

Please contact us for advice on how we can help solve your iron bacteria problem before it causes substantial damage to your plumbing, water appliances and irrigation equipment.

You can choose to buy a iron bacteria water filtration system "off the rack" and take your chances or you can let us recommend a system based upon your specific needs.
