Vertical Hydraulic Gauge* Pressure Gauge it’s helpful in monitoring your incoming water pressure, internal unit pressure & when to replace the filters. Indicate you to replace the filters when changes in reading start, pressure drop increasing is an indication that the cartridges start clogging with particular maters or the filters media is exhausted and the water inside the system can’t pass through the filters normally.

Approximate Life of IRON Filter Cartridge:
Filter life depends on the contamination level (iron equivalent) and amount of water consumed on a daily basis. You can use the following chart to estimate how long a filter will last in your case.
"Iron Equivalent" is calculated as follows: (Iron level) + (2 x Manganese level) + (3 x Hydrogen sulfide level)
If you are not sure about your Hydrogen sulfide level (it is hard to accurately test for) and you have a noticeable rotten egg odor, assume a Hydrogen sulfide level of 0.5 ppm. If the rotten egg odor is severe, assume a level of 1.0 ppm.
Example: Test results are 0.8 ppm iron, 0.2 ppm manganese, and you have a rotten egg smell in your water.
Iron Equivalent = (0.8) + ( 2 x 0.2) + (3 x 0.5) = 2.7

Some System contained Tannin with the Iron ( If you have only Tannins without Iron) please let us know so we can include different media filter type.
Tannins are astringent, bitter-tasting plant polyphenols that bind and precipitate proteins. The term tannin usually refers to the source of tannins used in tanning animal hides into leather. However, in this case we are referring to the brown discolouration in water, often caused by decaying organic matter. Tannins in well waters form from humic acid, a complex mixture of many different acids containing carboxyl and phenolate groups produced by biodegradation of dead organic matter. Tannins can also be found in peat, coal, many upland streams and ocean water.
Tannins can be removed by self-cleaning automatic tannin filters. These filters remove tannins by using anion ion-exchange media. These units regenerate using rock salt (sodium chloride) in much the same way water softeners function. Frequently, we'll see shallow-dug wells (less than 50ft deep) that fill with run-off water, develop high levels of tannins during heavy rainy periods. Ideally sealing off the well from surface run-off would solve the problem, but a tannin filter is often an excellent, relatively low-cost alternative.
Occasionally these tannins are accompanied with iron (Fe) or manganese (Mn). Water high in iron or manganese can sometimes be reddish, rust coloured, brown, tan, black, or even greenish in colour. Chlorination or ozonisation water treatment, followed by an iron filter like our Manganese Sand Whole House Filter can be very effective at removing both tannins and these oxidized iron particles.
One method that is used to remove tannins in well water involves injecting a flocculant such as Cat-Floc-TL, which allows the microscopic suspended particles that create the colour in water, to lose their positive charge and floc together into larger clumps. This is easily done on small scale systems by using a metering pump and injecting 2-5 ppm of “Cat-Floc” (one of many types of flocculant aids that can be used for this purpose) into the water as it flows into a holding tank or storage tank. The water is allowed to settle, and is followed by filtration to remove any suspended floc.
A very effective method to remove tannin colour is by using Ultrafiltration (“UF”) membrane systems. UF systems can be used by small communities, commercial sites and even homeowners to reduce turbidity and produce crystal clear water less than 0.1 NTUs (Nephelometric Turbidity Units). The methods can be pricey and care must be taken to properly pretreat the water if UF is used if iron, manganese or hardness minerals are present, as this can greatly reduce the life of the membrane.
In some cases, by pretreating the water with chlorine or ozone, direct filtration can also be used. Depending on the nature of the colour, a backwashing sediment filter using a zeolite filter like our 2.5" Iron/Manganese Filter does a great job at clarifying the water. Sediment down to the 5-10 micron range can be filtered out, then backwashed out periodically by an automatic control valve.
There are many different system design and application conditions that must be considered, including water chemistry, flow rate, disinfection techniques, and what types of filtration to use. In some cases, additional treatment such as reverse osmosis (RO) membrane filtration, can be used in place of or in conjunction with polymer injection and settling, for colour removal.
