Ferrous sulfate, also commonly referred to as “rust”, found in well water is the root cause of many issues involving your skin, hair and appliances. Some of the negative effects rust can have on you and your home include an unpleasant metallic odour found in your water, excess buildup of soap scum residue, stains on your dishes and clothing, in addition to causing your hair to become brittle and discoloured or even aggravate skin issues such as acne and eczema.
Take action towards having ferrous sulfate and other harsh chemicals removed from your water In order to avoid experiencing any of the aforementioned effects of heightened levels of iron found in well water.
In order for ferrous sulfate and manganese to be removed from your water, it needs to first be oxidized and turned into larger particles which then can be removed by a filter. Birm(an acronym for Burgess Iron Removal Method) is used to speed up the oxidation process by acting as a reactant between dissolved oxygen and iron/manganese so that contaminants can be filtered out of your water.
