    Solve Multiple Well Water Problems With The Iron Max Plus Series
    Iron, Iron Bacteria, Manganese, Sulfur Bacteria, Hydrogen Sulfide Gas, Tannins

    The Different Types of Iron & Bacteria Treated by The Iron Max Plus

    Ferrous - This type of iron is often called "clear water iron" since it is not visible in poured water. It is found in water which contains no oxygen, such as water from deep wells or groundwater.

    Ferric - Ferric iron is also known as "red water iron". This type of iron is basically ferrous iron which has been exposed to oxygen (oxidized), usually from the air. These oxidized particles are generally visible in poured water.

    Iron Bacteria - Iron Bacteria is generally more common than sulfur bacteria, simply because iron is abundant in ground water. Iron bacteria are "oxidizing agents." That is, they combine iron or manganese dissolved in ground water with oxygen. A side effect of the process is a foul smelling brown slime which can coat well screens, pipes, and plumbing fixtures. This slime isn't a health hazard, but it can cause unpleasant odors, corrode plumbing equipment, and clog well screens and pipes. If conditions are right, the bacteria can grow at amazing rates and an entire well system may be rendered virtually useless in just a few months.

    There are several signs that may indicate an iron bacteria problem. Water may have a yellow, red or orange color. Rusty 'rainbow' slime deposits may form in toilet tanks. A strange smell resembling fuel oil, cucumbers, or sewage may be noticeable. Sometimes the odor will only be apparent in the morning or after other extended periods of non-use. Iron bacteria can be readily identified by the red, feathery floc which forms overnight at the bottom of a sample bottle containing iron and iron bacteria. In some places, it causes great damage; in others, it is considered a minor nuisance.

    Bacterial contamination of a water supply doesn't always mean 'health hazard'. Some types of bacterial contamination are more annoying than harmful. Iron and sulfur bacteria are two of the most common bacterial contaminants that well owners face. Neither type of bacteria is particularly harmful, at least not at the levels usually seen in well systems. However, they can be incredible nuisances. 

    Sulfur Bacteria - There are two categories of sulfur bacteria: sulfur oxidizers and sulfur reducers. Sulfur-oxidizing bacteria produce effects similar to those of iron bacteria. They convert sulfide into sulfate, producing a dark slime that can clog plumbing. Sulfur-reducing bacteria (SRB) live in oxygen-deficient environments. They break down sulfur compounds, producing hydrogen sulfide gas in the process. Hydrogen sulfide gas is foul-smelling and highly corrosive.

    A related nuisance problem that can result from sulfate in water is sulfur-oxidizing bacteria. These nonpathogenic bacteria convert sulfide into sulfate, producing a dark slime that can clog plumbing and/or stain clothing. Blackening of water or dark slime coating the inside of toilet tanks may indicate a sulfur-oxidizing bacteria problem. Sulfur-oxidizing bacteria are less common than sulfur-reducing bacteria 

    Colloidal iron - Colloidal iron consists of iron particles which are very small (typically less than 0.1 micron), so they cannot be removed by traditional filters. It is removed with oxidization followed by filtration and lastly small micron post filtration.
