Aeration and Oxidation In Well Water Treatment Explained

Iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide gas often exist together in groundwater supplies.

One of the most effective alternatives to chemical oxidation for removing these contaminants is aeration and oxidation.

Here, we've covered aeration and oxidation for private wells, including the process, benefits, and pre-installation considerations you should make before installing an aeration system.

Aeration and oxidation capture and oxidize common well water contaminants such as iron, hydrogen sulfide, manganese, carbon dioxide, volatile organic compounds, and methane.

The process takes place in an oxidation tank and is typically combined with a filtration media, like birm or manganese greensand.

Which traps the oxidized contaminants and prevents them from continuing through your home in the water supply.

These precipitated contaminants can then be flushed down a drain line when the system backwashes.

There are aeration systems available for domestic well water treatment, as well as systems that are used for industrial processes and wastewater treatment.
