Iron and Hydrogen Sulfide in Water

One of the problems of using either reclaimed water or water from an untreated source is that environmental chemicals infiltrate the water and cause unwanted properties. These properties range from the water causing rust to the water producing a ‘rotten egg’ odor in the home or business. This common struggle with water conditioning has been dealt with historically by introducing chemical agents into the water and then applying a filtration step to remove everything at once. This was burdensome, however, because it required the constant maintenance and changing of filters for the various particulate matter.


Technology has come a long way since the early days of iron and hydrogen sulfide water treatment. Now, there are filtration systems that don’t use any synthetic chemical additives whatsoever, and they don’t need filter changes or maintenance even a third as much as legacy systems once did. This new technology involves using forced Natural Air to oxidize the unwanted iron and hydrogen sulfide, altering it at a molecular level so that it is easily screened out by the system’s Diamonite filtration system.


You can learn more about how this process works by visiting the Iron Boss product page. With such simple, safe, and affordable water treatment technology now available, you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not getting a quote for your own Iron Boss system. Some of the benefits of this filter include:


  • Less incidence of rust on appliances and household surfaces (especially steel)
  • Elimination of ‘rotten egg’ smell due to hydrogen sulfide buildup
  • Pretreated water is easier for secondary systems like softeners to process, reducing equipment wear and service costs.


With the right water know-how, you can help to ensure that your home or business is using water in the healthiest and most efficient way possible.
