How Much Does a New Iron Filtration System Cost?
Like most water conditioning systems there are many ways to remove iron from water, and some are far better than others. The factors that determine the average cost of an iron filtration system, also commonly called an iron curtain, depend on the size of the home and plumbing system, water quality and iron content, installation requirements and existing fitment consideration.
Basic budget level iron filtration needs may be met with the installation of an iron removal cartridge. These iron removal systems can be installed for as little as $300 and can range up to $1200 if you're looking for a filter cartridge to treat a whole home. This system requires filter replacements every 30-90 days depending on iron content.
Maintenance free midrange iron filters- Most homeowners with high iron opt for a maintenance free iron filter. In fact, most that go this route have an existing iron curtain 1.0 or iron curtain 2.0 already installed. A modern iron removal system in this range cost between $1900 and $2750.
High capacity iron filters- For homes with extremely high iron or homes that want to filter hose faucets and fill backyard pools with iron free water… We have a solution for that too. The technicians at Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air can design a high flow, high capacity iron removal system. Systems such as these vary greatly in their complexity which means the range for these systems can be $4,500- $12,000.

FAQ’s About Iron Curtains, Iron Filters, and Iron Removal Systems
An iron filter for a home is a device designed to remove excess iron from well water. Iron filters work by using a process known as oxidation, which involves converting the dissolved iron in the water into a solid particle that can be trapped by the filter media.
The filter typically contains a bed of filter media, such as manganese dioxide, that reacts with the iron in the water to convert it into a solid form. As the water passes through the filter, the solid particles are trapped by the media, preventing them from entering your home's water supply.
Most iron filters for well water are also equipped with backwashing features, which involve periodically reversing the flow of water through the filter to remove the accumulated particles and flush them out of the system.
Iron filters come in a variety of sizes and styles to suit different needs and preferences. Some filters are designed for whole-house use, while others are intended for smaller point-of-use applications, such as under-sink installations.
Our team of experienced technicians at Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air will work with you to select the right iron filter for your home and install it with precision and care. We take great pride in our attention to detail and commitment to providing exceptional service to each and every one of our customers.
Not only do we offer installation services for iron filters, but we can also provide a full home water conditioning system. Our water conditioning systems are designed to remove a variety of contaminants, such as chlorine, sediment, and bacteria in addition to iron. With our water filtering systems, you can rest assured that your family is drinking clean, safe water.
Although there can be iron in non-well water, the need for an iron curtain or iron filtration system is typically associated with well water. If you are looking for a well water iron filter, you should be considering a whole home maintenance free iron removal system. The team at Austin Plumbing, Heating & Air will help you design a system to remove any amount of iron from your well water. See a complete list of well services here.
Depending on the iron content and water usage in the home, we have found that the useful life of an iron curtain is around 6 years. After 6 years of service, the typical iron curtain starts to lose capacity and allows iron bleed through, as well as contributes to a decrease in water pressure and flow.
