Thread: HIGH Iron in Manganese in well water! Recommendations?

  1. #1

    Default HIGH Iron in Manganese in well water! Recommendations?

    Hi there,

    I am in the process of buying some land and just saw the water test results:

    Hardness < 33 mg/L
    Iron 26 mg/L
    Manganese 0.47 mg/L
    pH 7.27
    TDD 72 mg/L
    Turbidity 200 NTU

    Are there any solutions for such high Iron and Manganese? Any idea of capital cost & maintenance costs? The water came out of the pipe cloudy and yellow and red flakes are settling at the bottom of the sample I took. It seems to be clearing up over time.

    Thanks!

    I am confident there would be a solution. Maybe $1200 or $2000 for a filter installed. I sent a message of what I would be thinking, but others may have better ideas.

    If you have flakes, that would probably be from the pipes. That could be filtered out, and/or you might need to have pipes replaced. Figure 1 or 2 Big Blue filters at roughly $100 each for flakes and sediment.

    These are my guesses. I am not a pro.

    You might check into the Sulfur Eliminator to get rid of the iron by aerating the water in the well. Then it might not take much of a filter to collect the larger stuff.
