    Whole house filtration

    Does anyone here run any type of whole house filtration other than water softeners? The water in my subdivision has a lot of sediment in it, clay I think. We ran sediment filters on the washer last time we lived here to keep our cloths from turning orange. I have burned through a sediment filter on my RODI already. I am thinking of installing a whole house sediment filter. Anyone run one? Recommendations?

    Thanks

    Something like this should work for basic sediment removal.

    Reeftopia would consider Cypress "downtown". He lives farther than that out in the woods.

    Hi Wazzel - apart from the gazillion RODI systems and filters we've sold into the reefing community over the last 20 years, we also work with non-reefing homeowners and businesses to solve water quality issues. We've diagnosed and solved these riddles all over the contiguous 48 states, as well as in places like Romania, Colombia, Moscow, Hawaii, China, and Alaska. Feel free to give us a call if you'd like help.

    Without any site specific info, the fact you mentioned your filters are turning orange makes me wonder if you're dealing with an iron issue, rather than sediment.

    It could be. We lived in the same subdivision before and had the same problem. We put sediment filters on the washer and that saved out cloths from turning orange slowly over time. I still have the housings and if I do not get a whole house system soon I will put those back in service.

    Do you sell high temp sediment filters?

    yep.

    Iron comes in two forms in drinking water.
    Ferric iron is the UNdissolved chunks/flaks/specs you might see floating in your glass
    Ferrous iron is invisible, as it is dissolved. When you aerate/agitate water (go from laminar to turbulent flow) like what happens at the surface of a sediment filter, you can cause some of that dissolved iron to come out of solution - it can then be captured by a sediment filter.

    What is the name of your town and water utility? I can look up your water quality report and see what they say about iron. Or are you on a residential well?

    FYI - working softeners trap sediment, and can also treat low levels of iron.
