One of the persistent problems of water treatment is how to deal with iron in well water used for landscape irrigation. Water with iron leaves stains on buildings, sidewalks, and driveways. Although homeowners often try to cure the problem with conventional iron filters, this approach is seldom satisfactory. The problem is that iron filters have a limited capacity between regeneration sessions. If used for water inside the home, an iron filter only has to process a few hundred gallons of water per day at a moderate flow rate. The filter has time to backwash and renew itself at night. With irrigation applications, however, the filter might be required to process thousands of gallons per day at a high flow rate. Iron filters used for significant irrigation jobs work only when they are sized very large, and usually multiple filters are required so that one can be regenerated while others are in service. To keep iron from staining buildings and walks, an alternative to filtering is sequestration of the iron. In this process, iron is not removed from the water but simply chemically bound so that it does not cause staining.
Unrust Iron Stain Preventer
However, delaying will just make the problem worse and cost you even more money. The fact is pre-mixed liquid irrigation rust stain prevention chemicals are much weaker, because of dilution. I cannot believe how fantastic this product works!!!! I needed only three mixed gallons and the stains are absolutely GONE!!!!!! I used to use the premixed liquid from the box stores and would use at least 8 gallons with unsatisfactory results. Then, I would have to power wash to get it somewhat right. This stuff is absolutely awesome!!!!
