Iron and Sulfur Removal for Your Water

Iron Removal

The Water Doctor provides iron and sulfur removal to areas of Deltona, DeLand, Sanford, Ormond Beach, DeBary, and beyond. Taste iron in your water? Smelling too much sulfur when you turn your faucet on? Call the Water Doctor today, 386-985-9960.

With the Iron Zapper, the Water Doctor provides chemical-free water treatment to your home or business anywhere in or around Volusia and Seminole County.


The Iron-Zapper system eliminates iron stains and rotten egg odors from Hydrogen Sulfide because the Iron-Zapper's filter media has high amounts of Manganese Dioxide, an active ingredient, proven to effectively treat Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide. For this reason, Iron-Zapper works when other iron removal systems fail!



Reduces:

  • Iron
  • Hydrogen Sulfide
  • Manganese
Additional Advantages

  • High flow rate (6 GPM / cu. ft. of media)
  • Effective at 5-9 pH
  • Treats up to 15 ppm Iron, 7 ppm HS and
  • 3 PPM of Manganese
  • Low cost on a GPM basis
Iron Water Filters

Chemical-Free

The Iron-Zapper system is chemical free because chemical oxidizing agents such as Chlorine, Hydrogen Peroxide and Potassium Permanganate are typically not required.

Eliminates the need for:

Chlorine (for oxidation)
Hydrogen Peroxide
Potassium Permanganate
Chemical pumps*

*Providing Chlorine is not required for disinfection or when iron bacteria is present.

How it works

The Iron-Zapper system consists of a control valve, pressurized mineral tank and our special Iron-Zapper filter media.

Water flows through the Iron-Zapper's filter media, which acts as a catalyst to use the oxygen content of the water to oxidize Iron, Hydrogen Sulfide and Manganese. Subsequently, these oxidized particles are trapped by the filter media and removed from your water during the backwash cycle.

Before After

Please note the homeowner had 12 ppm of Iron, and NO chlorine or other oxidizing chemicals were used!

Check out the “pre” photo and compare it to the “after” photo.  The water is so clear it’s hard to see water is in the sink.



IRON ZAPPER media is a high rate, granular filter material used for removing Hydrogen Sulfide, Iron and Manganese compounds from water supplies. The media operates both as a filter working with an oxidant and as a catalytic media due to its ability to accelerate the reaction between the oxidizing agent and any prevalent dissolved Oxygen with Sulfide, Iron and Manganese present.

Dissolved iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulfide will stay in solution unless the equilibrium is changed. Iron and Manganese that is not oxidized become catalytically precipitated and then adsorbed directly on the media. The media is a very dense media that stops oxidized (precipitated) forms of Iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulfide from passing through the bed. Most of the Manganese is rapidly removed in the first few inches of the media where it is further oxidized to Manganese Dioxide. The adsorbed Manganese, Iron and precipitated Sulfur are expelled during backwash. Any insoluble ferric hydroxide particulate growths are also expelled during backwash.

The media must be properly backwashed to break loose and remove the filtered contaminants and precipitated Iron, Manganese and Hydrogen Sulfide. (Every day is typical). System sizing of the control valve and tank are necessary to sustain media performance. A continuous reaction occurs with the addition of an oxidant, regenerating the media surface and replenishing the media. For difficult applications, IRON ZAPPER filters can be enhanced with aeration, chlorination, and ozone. IRON ZAPPER filters are recommended before softeners to protect the ion exchange resin from fouling.


Advantages:
  • Efficient reduction of manganese, iron and hydrogen sulfide with long service life
  • Only regular backwashing is necessary (typically daily)
  • Ability to process high flow rates with low pressure drop
  • Converts ferrous iron to ferric iron
  • Converts H2S to Sulfur Converts Manganese to MnO2
  • No chemical regeneration is required but may reduce service life
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 61-2002 Certified
Requirements:
  • Service flow rate – 6 GPM / cu. ft.
  • Backwash flow rate – 15 GPM or more per square feet of media
  • Bed depth – 24" minimum
  • Freeboard – 70% of media depth
  • pH range – 6.0 – 9.0

Applications:
  • Removal of Iron up to 15 ppm
  • Removal of Manganese up to 3 ppm
  • Removal of Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg smell) up to 7 ppm
Note: Not recommended for Iron Bacteria and Manganese bacteria removal. Not recommended for tannin and organics,

ORP requirements

The IRON ZAPPER media acts as a catalyst to use the Oxygen content of the water for oxidation. Using an ORP Meter, any reading above a negative 170 millivolts indicates Manganese Dioxide can be used effectively without the use of additional oxidants in most applications. Any reading below indicates oxidants will be required.

Air Draw for additional oxidation

For improved performance, the Safeway Water electronic control valve can be programmed for "air draw" to introduce ambient air to the filter's pressure tank for greater oxidation and improved removal performance.
