Iron (which is the "I" in Terminox™ ISM.) makes up around 5% of the earth's crust. When it rains the rain seeps through the ground and dissolves iron. The dissolved iron is then carried down into underground wells or aquifers. These aquifers are a very common source of ground water which is then used in people's homes. The dissolved iron can be in two forms: soluble ferrous iron or the insoluble ferric iron.
Terminox™ removes both forms, soluble ferrous iron (clear water iron) and insoluble ferric iron. The Terminox™ media removes the insoluble ferrous iron or clear water iron by oxidizing it immediately upon contact and then trapping it, thus pulling it out of your water. The insoluble ferric iron is removed in the same way, except it doesn't need to be oxidized as it's already gone through that process.
0.3mg/l of iron in your water is where staining starts and where we recommend treatment. It's also the MCL (Maximum Contaminant Level) set by the EPA.
Having iron in your water can cause the water to have a rusty color and will also cause reddish or orange staining on your water using appliances (bathtub, toilet, sink, etc). Sediment can also be present from iron in water. There can be a metallic taste present when drinking water that has iron in it.
