Chem Feed Systems for Chlorine Injection

Chem feed systems for chlorine injection. And you can inject soda ash too. Either together or inject separately. Different methods of chemical feed systems are included on this page.

Common Well Water Chlorination System Options:

(1) Injection Chlorine injection of small amounts of chlorine directly into water line with no retention tank, and not using well for retention. Most commonly used for sulfur smell (rotten egg smell) removal. Most inexpensive method of chlorination. OR:

(2) Inside well Chlorination the well itself (using the well as a retention tank) OR:

(3) Chlorination Outside the well with an add on retention tank OR:

(4) Chlorine/Aeration Open-Air System

This page explains what the difference is, and recommends equipment (including prices) for different types of situations.

(1) Firstly Injecting Chlorine Into Water Line (no retention):

Chemical feed systems

Firstly, this seems to be a method that is growing in popularity. Chlorine is injected directly into the water line to kill sulfur smells. Much less chlorine is used than with the other two methods. You simply mix a small amount of chlorine (like ordinary household bleach) with water in a 16 gallon chlorine container. Of course less is accomplished with the water. This is NOT an effective method of treatment for iron or other applications that require retention time (where the water is in contact with the chlorine for 20-30 minutes in a holding, or retention tank). Or, using the well as a holding tank for retention time. But if all you want to accomplish is to remove the sulfur smell this is the way to go. And we find Clorox bleach to work just fine.

(2) Inside the Well Chemical Feeder

Secondly, If you know that you have very little iron or no iron at all, this is a popular application. If a large amount of iron is present we recommend adding a storage tank to this set up. Chlorine pellets are dropped into the well at timed intervals by the LP3000 chlorinator, an automatic chemical feeder. It is great for removing sulfur smells, bacteria, iron and many other undesirable pollutants. It is effectively what cities and municipal water suppliers are doing. However we recommend using a "backwashing" full house carbon tank to remove the chlorine afterwards. It keeps you from worrying if there is too much chlorine bleeding through to your showers and drinking water.

Also, we find that in most cases undesirable well water also contains "hardness", calcium or limestone. A water softener is recommended in addition to the de-chlorination system. And a 30,000 grain water softener is usually more than sufficient for families of up to 4 people. Most water softeners use salt (sodium chloride) to regenerate or clean themselves. We recommend a water softener substitute (potassium chloride) for a more environmentally friendly approach. Potassium chloride is available at Sears, Home Depot, True Value Hardware and other national chains and local feed and grain stores. Sometimes they may need to order it for you. All of our systems will run on either one.

Note

After treating and softening or conditioning the water we recommend reverse osmosis (drinking water filter) to remove contaminates such as nitrates, sodium and total dissolved solids from the water. The system recommendations below include reverse osmosis at the kitchen sink. We sell chlorine testers for only $10.87 Buy Now

(3) Chemical Feed System Using 42 or 120 Gallon Storage Tank:

Thirdly, Chlorine is injected with a chemical injection pump (commonly known as a chemical injection pump, a chemical feed pump or a chemical dosing pump) into the water between the well and the bladder (or pressure) tank. It then runs through a large storage tank to allow contact time. A backwashing carbon tank removes the chlorine and other contaminates like tastes, odors, organics and chemicals. Then a water softener removes hardness and calcium (gives you great suds and softer skin). A sediment filter is recommended for wells with any sediment or dirt problems.

NOTE: All 120 gallon tanks are delivered by semi-truck only. You must have a place where the truck can get to you for delivery.

Iron bacteria and retention tanks

This system addresses iron and iron bacteria, e-coli bacteria, coliform bacteria and other contaminants that need contact time. But contact time is usually only essential for removing harmful bacteria such as e-coli and coliform. So for example iron bacteria usually does not need retention tanks when a chemical feed system and Terminox® are on the system. Unless it is really massive iron bacterium.

You can also add soda ash or other ingredients to a liquid chlorinator to raise the pH levels to above 7.2 if you have acid water. Low pH greatly reduces or hampers a water softener's ability to perform properly. Not to mention acidic water "eats away" at household pipes and fixtures. This application requires a storage tank (retention tank) large enough to give the water 20-30 minutes of contact time with iron bacteria. This is in addition to any chem feed systems you may have.

NOTE

You MUST have sample ports before and after retention tanks in order to test chlorine levels.

Reverse Osmosis Drinking water system recommended same as above.

(4) Chlorine/Aeration

Finally, systems combine chlorination and aeration to provide powerful sanitation and chlorination. Click here for more information on Chlorine Aeration. This is not the same as a stand alone chorine injection pumpClick here for more information on our Flow Switch.

Comes Complete with Easy Install Kit

NOTE: When ordering Chem Feed Systems Pump, BE SURE you know if it is 110v or 220v well pump that you have. Additionally, the Chemical Feeder Pump should be the same voltage as the well pump in most cases. Finally, Chlorine production depends on chlorine and water mixture. We will be happy to advise you on the mixture for your application.

These tests measure the pH level and Chlorine levels present in the water using the drop count method. Therefore, they are great for diagnosing your water so you can determine whether you need to add an acid neutralizer tank on well water or on city water if you need to reduce the amount of chlorine in the water.
