If you have a well sprinkler system then you may have high amounts of iron in your well water.
Not all well will produce iron, it reaaly just depends onn your water table, aquifer that you have.
You can have a shallow well 25-45 feet and not experience iron stain.
This is a good thing, because if you have iron in your well water you will know by the stains that the iron leaves behind.
If you notice orange staining on sidewalks, driveways, side of home, fence or pool deck then you have iron in your well.
There are many ways to remove iron stains from may surfaces. If you are attempting to remove iron stains from cement then you should always pressure wash area before applying iron dissolvent.
If you are trying to remove iron stains from a painted surface, there is no prep needed, simply spray on the iron dissolvent, wait 5 minutes and then rinse off with water.
Repeat this process until stain is completely gone. Be patient, some stained areas will take multiple applications.
If you have white vinyl fencing that have well water iron stains on them you can simply spray needed areas with iron dissovent, will no prep and no rinse needed as well.
Once you have removed all the iron stains it is now time to install the Iron Stain Prevention System.
This system has no moving parts, requires no electricity and simply connects to your existing well pump system.
It is a syphon system that only works while your sprinkler system is running.
Same size as a trash can and is a 33 gallon tank that holds the Iron Stain Prevention Solution.
This solution is eco-friendly and will not harm plants, grass, pets or children.
The Iron Stain Solution simply suspends the iron in its original state which is clear.
Iron turns yellow / orange when it oxidizes.
So by introducing the solution to well water before it is introduced to the air it prevents it from turning from clear to that nasty stain.
If you have 4 sprinkler zones that run approx. 30 minutes each zone and 3 days week you will use approx 30 gallons every 2 months.
The first 90 days after installing the Iron Stain Prevention System there are a few adjustments that need to be made to fine tune the solution ratio.
Make sure you check all sprinkler heads and make needed adjustments to prevent water infringement.
Make sure no sprinkler heads are hitting fences, sidewalks, driveways, mailboxes or sides of home.
