Understanding the Hydrogen Peroxide Water Treatment Process: Beginner's Guide
Do you need an eco-friendly and cost-effective way to purify your water? Consider hydrogen peroxide water treatment. This process is simple and easy to understand, making it an excellent option for beginners. When you know the basics, you are in a better position to reap all the rewards for your home.
What Is Hydrogen Peroxide Water Treatment?
Hydrogen peroxide is a clear liquid that is injected into your well water as it flows out of the well. When hydrogen peroxide is injected into water, a large amount of dissolved oxygen is released and a strong oxidizing effect takes place. Odors are eliminated and tannins can be oxidized.
Why Hydrogen Peroxide is Better:
1. Works faster than chlorine, so often no contact tank is required
2. Unlike chlorine will not leave a chemical residual in the water
3. Peroxide works over a wider pH range
Like chlorine, hydrogen peroxide is a strong oxidizer and can quickly eliminate the odors. Unlike chlorine, however, hydrogen peroxide leaves behind no trace of chemical by-products.
Hydrogen peroxide converts hydrogen sulfide gas, and iron present to a solid particle which is then removed by a back-washing self-cleaning carbon filtration system. For many applications, no retention tank is needed, and any residual hydrogen peroxide will be effectively removed by the carbon filter.
If the rotten-egg odors are extremely excessive, a contact tank is recommended, which allows a few minutes of time for the peroxide to contact with the water, to make sure the water is properly treated.
The actual treatment procedure is simple. A metering pump automatically inserts a tiny amount of hydrogen peroxide in front of the pressure tank, whenever the well pump turns on.
The back-washing carbon filter system is installed after the pressure tank and filters the water. The result is clean, disinfected, and odor-free water throughout the home.
Flow Sensor Systems Allow Peroxide Systems to Be Installed After Well
In some cases, it's not practical to install the peroxide injection point near the well, or perhaps you are on a shared community well, and you prefer to have the system right where the water enters the home.
In this case, a flow-based system can be used. This type of system uses a flow meter to control the peroxide injection pump.
As soon as there is flow, the peroxide pump injects a small amount of hydrogen peroxide based on how fast the water is flowing through the pipe.
Proportionally fed hydrogen peroxide products offer owners a convenient way to inject hydrogen peroxide as the water enters the household plumbing system and is very easy to set up and maintain.
