The Compare The Best Tannin Filters For Well Water:
  • Question: How do you remove high tannin from well water?
  • Answer: Water containing high tannins is passed through specialty resin, manufactured solely for the purpose of removing specific contaminants in the water. Making our Tannin Eater the most economical point of entry tannin removal system we offer.  
  • Question: Is the Tannin Eater a whole house tannin removal system?
  • Answer: Yes, the Tannin Eater provides treated clean well water at every tap in your house. However, the Tannin Eater is much more than a whole house tannin filter. Nearly half of our Tannin Eater customers use this system for commercial business applications such as car washes, Laundromats, etc. 
  • Question: How much Tannin does the Tannin Eater remove?
  • Answer: The RainDance Tannin Eater can effectively treat up to 5ppm of nitrates and reduce the levels to below 0.5ppm or down to trace or non-detectable levels.
  • Question: Does the Tannin Eater soften hard water?
  • Answer: Yes, the Tannin 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 tannins. If you already have a water softener and would like to add the Tannin Eater we can remove the softening option. Contact Us for additional information.
  • Question: Does the Tannin Eater remove well water iron?
  • Answer: No, iron will foul the specialized media we use to remove tannins and must be filtered prior to the Tannin Eater. If you have both iron and high tannin contact us for our packaged water treatment solution.
  • Question: Will the Tannin Eater remove sulfur odors?
  • Answer:  The Tannin 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 Tannin 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 Tannin Eater provide continuous tannin filtration?
  • Answer: Yes, for high water usage applications such as large homes, commercial business, and applications that require tannin free water 24/7 we offer our Twin Alternating Tannin Eater softeners. The Twin Alternating Tannin Eater Systems provide an uninterrupted supply of soft tannin free water to your home or business. The Twin Tannin Eater series has two tanks for softening hard water and tannins 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 tannin levels, or where continuous water treatment is desired with no down time.
  • Question: Do I need a plumber to install the Tannin Eater?
  •  Answer: The Tannin 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: Who do I contact for support?
