Iron Removal Systems & Filters

We’re The Leaders In Iron Removal Systems & Filters

Water filtration solutions for iron go by many names including iron curtains, iron curtain systems, iron filters, or iron removal systems. Regardless of the nomenclature of your choice, this piece of equipment goes hand-in-hand with homes using well water. 

High iron content plagues countless residents in Washington and Waukesha counties, often showing up as red stains in the bathtub or toilet, weird-smelling water, and poor water pressure. The amount of iron in well water can depend on where you live and the characteristics of your well, including its depth, but regardless of your location or well’s construction, no one is truly immune to high iron content.

Warning Signs You Have High Iron or Your Existing Iron Filter Or Iron Curtain Isn’t Working

Red Staining

Iron will stain your plumbing fixtures, your clothes, and your home!  The worst part of an iron stain is once something is fouled with iron, it's very difficult to remove the stain.

Smelly Water

Rotten egg, gym shoes, and sulfur... There are many ways to describe the unpleasant smell of iron-laden water. We can get your water back to a “Smell Good” state in no time.

Poor Water Pressure

The red stains the iron leaves on all your plumbing fixtures and house are also occurring inside of your pipes. Over years, this chalky red substance builds up inside the home's piping and will impede water flow causing you to experience poor water pressure. If you’ve noticed poor water pressure lately, it could be because of a broken-down iron filter.

Iron Filter For Well Water

Some iron filters are designed to remove a minor amount of iron found in city water supplies. However, the wells in Washington and Waukesha counties typically contain more iron than a basic iron filter can handle. 

The best way to determine which is the best iron filter for your well water is to have a water expert from Austin Plumbing Heating & Air come out to your home for a water analysis. During an analysis, we will test your well water and determine what type of iron removal system is best for your needs.

Iron Filter Service & Repairs

Iron filters are designed to filter out iron debris from your home's water system. Over time, iron filters wear out and certain components of the iron filter need to be serviced. Some examples of when your iron filter is ready for service include:

Iron Bleed Through

When you have an iron filter in your home and you're noticing red staining, this is a sign that your iron filter requires service.

Iron Filter Drain Is Constantly Running Or Dripping

During the cleaning process, your iron filter is backwashing into your floor drain or sometimes a laundry sink. The iron filter drain line is used to carrying water from the iron filter to the drain. There should only be water running out of the drain during a regeneration cycle. If you notice constant dripping from your iron filter drain, it’s time to get it serviced.

Poor Water Pressure

As your iron curtain or iron filter starts to plug with iron, the water pressure in the house will start to suffer. If you have an iron filter and poor water pressure, this is a good indication it's time to schedule some service for your iron filter.
