We have two ways to attack heavy amounts of iron (depending on amount of iron, and age of the well).
It is industry standard to recommend a well cleaning every 7-10 years. Older wells that have not been cleaned can have high amounts of iron due to the already high levels of iron in Central Indy's water, and rust buildup from the casing.
A well cleaning (or blowout) will air lift all those years of built up rust (and sediment) out the top of the well.
In some cases a home or business may have high levels of iron in their water. Although a blowout is still recommended to remove iron and sediment, if the water coming from the aquifer is already full of iron then we have to tackle the situation with external equipment.
That's where the A.I.O. comes into play. An A.I.O. is an air injected backwash unit. It oxidizes iron for iron removal, removes sulfur, and also removes manganese - ALL WITHOUT THE USE OF ANY CHEMICALS!
If added to existing water softeners, the A.I.O. will remove any iron or odor that the softener media can not remove.
