Water is Life. It nourishes life but it can disturb it too. When water is soft at heart, it fills life with freshness. But when water becomes hard, everyday simple household work becomes a nightmare.
Removing iron and/or manganese from water supplies can be accomplished by a variety of means, depending on the amount of material to be removed, whether both iron and manganese are present. Iron and manganese in groundwater supplies are typically present as dissolved substances. As the water is exposed to atmosphere, some of the iron and manganese are oxidized and become suspended solids. Simple exposure to atmosphere, however, is not generally sufficient to achieve effective removal. Iron removal filters are primarily used to remove iron impurity from utilities and drinking water.
