The RainDance "Nitrate Filter" Catalog & Selection Guide

 


Whole house nitrate Filters can accommodate well water pump flow rates from 10gpm up to 100gpm and can be installed on 3/4" up to 2" plumbing lines.

Nitrates and nitrites are nitrogen-oxygen chemical units which combine with various organic and inorganic compounds. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency uses 10 mg/L as N as a mandatory national standard for public supplies under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The 10 mg/L (same as ppm) standard expressed as nitrogen (N) is equivalent to 45 mg/L expressed as nitrate are considered unsafe. Nitrates have no detectable color, taste or odor at the concentrations involved in drinking water supplies, and they do not cause discoloration of plumbing fixtures, so they remain undetectable to our senses. Carbon filters cannot remove nitrates - boiling your water does not remove nitrates 

High nitrate levels in well water can cause methemoglobinemia or blue baby syndrome, a condition found especially in infants under six months. The stomach acid of an infant is not as strong as in older children and adults. This causes an increase in bacteria that can readily convert nitrate to nitrite (NO2). 

Nitrite is absorbed in the blood, and hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying component of blood) is converted to methemoglobin. Methemoglobin does not carry oxygen efficiently. This results in a reduced oxygen supply to vital tissues such as the brain. Methemoglobin in infant blood cannot change back to hemoglobin, which normally occurs in adults. Severe methemoglobinemia can result in brain damage and death.

Pregnant women, adults with reduced stomach acidity, and people deficient in the enzyme that changes methemoglobin back to normal hemoglobin are all susceptible to nitrite-induced methemoglobinemia. The most obvious symptom of methemoglobinemia is a bluish color of the skin, particularly around the eyes and mouth. Other symptoms include headache, dizziness, weakness or difficulty in breathing. 

You can choose to buy a nitrate water filtration system "off the rack" and take your chances or you can let us recommend a system based upon your specific needs. If you already have a water report please email Support@RainDanceWaterSystems.com ATTN: Nitrate Recommendation. Once we have reviewed your water report we will contact you with the best water treatment solution.

Compare Our Best Well Water Nitrate Filtration Systems:
  • Question: How do you remove high nitrates from well water?
  • Answer: Water containing high nitrates is passed through specialty resin, manufactured solely for the purpose of removing specific contaminants in the water.
  • Question: Is the Nitrate Eater a whole house nitrate removal system?
  • Answer: Yes, the Nitrate Eater provides treated clean well water at every tap in your house. However, the Nitrate Eater is much more than a whole house nitrate filter. Nearly half of our Nitrate Eater customers use this system for livestock drinking water and commercial business applications. 
  • Question: How much Nitrate does the Nitrate Eater remove?
  • Answer: The RainDance Nitrate Eater can effectively treat up to 150ppm of nitrates and reduce the levels to below 10ppm or down to trace or non-detectable levels.
  • Question: Does the Nitrate Eater soften hard water?
  • Answer: Yes, the Nitrate Eater softens hard water up to 40gpg. Hard water softening is needed as excessive hard water can destroy the specialized media we use to remove nitrates. If you already have a water softener and would like to add the Nitrate Eater we can remove the softening option. Contact Us for additional information.
  • Question: Does the Nitrate Eater remove well water iron?
  • Answer: No, iron will foul the specialized media we use to remove nitrates and must be filtered prior to the Nitrate Eater. If you have both iron and high nitrates contact us for our packaged water treatment solution.
  • Question: Will the Nitrate Eater remove sulfur odors?
  • Answer:  No, the Nitrate Eater can reduce some odors. However, hydrogen sulfide gas needs to be filtered with different technology. If you have hydrogen sulfide gas "rotten egg odor" contact us for the proper treatment method.           
  • Question: Is the Nitrate Eater a reverse osmosis system?
  •  Answer: No, reverse osmosis is a completely different water treatment technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and other contaminants from drinking water - a whole house reverse osmosis will also require hard water pretreatment, separate storage tank and delivery pump.
  • Question: Can the Nitrate Eater provide continuous nitrate filtration?
  • Answer: Yes, for high water usage applications such as large homes, commercial business, and applications that require nitrate free water 24/7 we offer our Twin Alternating Nitrate Eater softeners. The Twin Alternating Nitrate Eater Systems provide an uninterrupted supply of soft nitrate free water to your home or business. The Twin Nitrate Eater series has two tanks for softening hard water and nitrates in your well water. Water is filtered and softened in one tank while the other is in a standby mode. When the filtering capacity of the first tank is reached, the system automatically switches tanks. The first tank then starts the backwashing cycle. This cycle is repeated when the second tank reaches its capacity point. The perfect choice for high water use households, high nitrates levels, or where continuous water treatment is desired with no down time.
  • Question: Do I need a plumber to install the Nitrate Eater?
  •  Answer: The Nitrate Eater is installed exactly like a water softener. If you are handy and possess basic plumbing skills you should have no problem with this installation. We provide detailed installation instructions, pictures, and offer several means of tech support for you or your plumber.
  • Question: How will I know if the Nitrate Eater is working?
  • Answer: We include (2) test bibs and a water test kit with your order - these bibs are easily installed before and after the Nitrate Eater for on the spot testing - On Site Water Test Kit Included! 
  • Question: Who do I contact for support?
  • Answer: When other companies close for the day, weekend and holidays, we are still open and available to answer your questions and offer tech support. Our Online Live Person Chat System is available from 5am to 10pm PST, 365 days a year (holidays included) - Emails & Contact Forms are also answered 7 days a week 365 days a year (holidays included) or if you prefer to call (1-877-788-8387) our office hours are from 9am-5pm PST Monday-Friday.
