Hoping someone out there has some additional ideas.
We are on a well. The whole area I live in is known to have bad water.
In ours we have a tripple whammy of hard water, iron and tannin.
We right now have a 3 stage treatment process. First is an multimedia
filter (green sand) to remove the iron, then a water softner and
finally a tannin removal filter and after that a big blue cartridge
filter and a UV filter.
However, lately they just are not keeping up on the tannin side. Our
water is still a yellow/brown color and occasionally has an odor to it.
We have replaced the media in the iron filter and that helped a bit.
Right now I am using a product called Res-Up to help remove the iron
build up in the water softner and soda ash to help remove it from the
tannin filter, but it really is not helping.
I understand water with both iron and tannin is doubley tough to
Are there other solutions I should be looking at? Is chlorination an
option? Anything else?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
