Successfully filtering high tannins throughout Alaska, Florida, Washington, Wisconsin, Illinois, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts

Tannins (humic acid) are found in waters which have passed through large quantities of decaying vegetation. Tannins can cause yellow water and yellow staining on fabrics and fixtures. Tannins measuring 0.5 PPM or higher may cause staining and/or interference with various water treatment processes. In applications where higher percentages of tannin removal are required or where total house treatment is required for a lower cost than whole house reverse osmosis, ion exchange is the best answer.

Top 10 Tannin Eater Questions & Answers:

  • Question: Is the Tannin Eater a whole house tannin removal system?
  • Answer: Yes, the Tannin Eater provides fresh clean well water at every tap in your house.
  • Question: How much Tannin does the Tannin Eater remove?
  • Answer: The RainDance Tannin Eater can effectively treat up to 5ppm of tannins 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:  No, 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: 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: How much is the Tannin Eater?
  • Answer: We list complete pricing on all of our Tannin 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 Tannin Eater's are delivered already pre-loaded with media so you do not have to load the tank(s)  
  • Question: Do you offer any Tannin Eater discounts or rebates?
  • Answer: Yes, however, our online discounts and rebates change often. For current Tannin Eater Savings see our Discount Page

  • Note:
    If you already have a water softener in place we can design the Tannin Eater to filter tannin only (no water softening) for greater removal capacity. The "Tannin Only" Tannin Eater would be installed after your existing water softener. See our Tannin Eater Store for our complete line of products.

    Twin Alternating Tannin Removal Systems
    The perfect choice for on demand water treatment with no down time!

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

    The Tannin 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.
