Our customer in Lakemoor, IL was having a hard time with her water. Blonde hair didn’t stay blond with this well water.

The water was leaving orange spots throughout the house. It smelled too.

If you’ve read this blog before, you’ve probably guessed the problem: Iron Bacteria.

Our customer didn’t want nasty water anymore. But she also didn’t want to use any chemicals like chlorine to fix the problem.

Garrelts Water installed an Iron Bacteria Treatment System that solved her water problems – without chemicals!

Water Softener Couldn’t Stop the Rust

The customer had been using a Fleck 2510 water softener system with two inline 20 micron sediment filters.

The raw well water tested at:

  • 5ppm of iron
  • 30gpg hardness
  • 0ppm hydrogen sulfide
  • strong rotten egg smell

In some cases, a softener could handle that level of iron. But not here.

Iron Bacteria was giving the water a horrible smell – and it was growing through the water softener!

It had to be stopped!

Chemical-Free Iron Bacteria Treatment System

You can’t just filter Iron Bacteria. You have to kill it.

In the past, we have used chlorine injection systems to kill Iron Bacteria. They work great too.

But some people don’t want the hassle of mixing chemicals every month.

Others don’t like adding chlorine or chemicals to their water.

Enter ozone.

Ozone is nature’s most powerful disinfectant.

It works much faster, breaks down quickly into oxygen, and adds little if anything to water.

Iron Curtain Storm: Ozone Iron Filter

The Iron Curtain Storm is a really slick new product from Hellenbrand.

Iron Curtain Storm - Lakemoor ILThe original Iron Curtain uses air injection to remove Iron. But it cant stop Iron Bacteria without adding a chlorine system.

Enter the Iron Curtain Storm. A powerful all-in-one Iron Bacteria Treatment System.

No compressors. No chemical feed pumps. No mixing chemicals.

Ozone works so fast you can get disinfection, oxidation, and filtration in a single unit.

That means you save space and money over the 2 tank systems.

The Iron Curtain Storm automatically flushes itself out and replenishes ozone as needed.

A simple annual cleaning keeps the ozone generator working perfectly.

You get great water with less maintenance – and no chemicals!
