Whole House High Nitrate Filtration from Nevada to Maryland to Oregon to Pennsylvania to Arizona

The Nitrate Eater Series: These self cleaning, easy-to-install whole house & commercial business well water nitrate treatment systems serve a dual purpose by filtering high Nitrates and softening Hard Water - nitrate only (no softening) systems also available. Designed to filter high levels of Nitrates (found in water supplies that are in areas where there are heavy use of fertilizers. Nitrates can cause Methemoglobinemia a.k.a. blue baby syndrome. This is a serious condition in young infants and new born animals where the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood is reduced.), and Hard Water (calcium and magnesium scale). Our Nitrate Eater uses NSF Approved Certified 61 filtration media. Scroll Down To View The RainDance Nitrate Eater Selection Guide

The EPA has approved ion exchange and reverse osmosis treatment methods for removing nitrates/nitrites. The maximum contaminant level (MCL) is 10 parts per million (ppm) nitrate as nitrogen (NO3 as N). A laboratory may also choose to express nitrate as nitrate (NO3 as NO3) in the water analysis, and in this case, the EPA MCL is 44.2 ppm (10 ppm as N is equivalent to 44.2 ppm as NO3).

Top 11 Nitrate Eater Questions & Answers:

  • 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: 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 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: How much is the Nitrate Eater?
  • Answer: We list complete pricing on all of our Nitrate Eater's below - simply scroll down this webpage for pricing and special installation accessory kit add-ons available at no extra charge.
  • Question: Do you offer free delivery?
  • Answer: Yes, we offer free shipping within the Continental USA and most Nitrate Eater's are delivered already pre-loaded with media so you do not have to load the tank(s)  
  • Question: Do you offer any Nitrate Eater discounts or rebates?
  • Answer: Yes, however, our online discounts and rebates change often. For current Nitrate Eater Savings see our Discount Page

    Twin Alternating Nitrate Removal Systems

    The perfect choice for on demand water treatment with no down time!

    The Twin Alternating Nitrate Eater is used where there is a demand for nitrate treatment at flow rates or higher water usage than those obtainable through a single water softening system.

    The Nitrate Eater alternating twin tanks provide an uninterrupted supply of soft filtered water to your home or business. These systems feature two tanks for treating well water. Water is softened and filtered in one tank while the other is in a standby mode. When the softening capacity of the first tank is reached, the system automatically switches tanks. The first tank is then recharged. This cycle is repeated when the second tank reaches its capacity point.
