Iron Plus

The Iron Plus water treatment technology that Holman Plumbing & Water Treatment installs for homes and businesses on Vancouver Island is very unique and extremely green. This new technology separates itself from chemical injections and treatment systems that require chemicals to backwash their media beds. The Iron Plus system we have been installing is meant to take the place of the typical green sand system, which requires potassium permanganate to backwash the media bed. This is old technology and the cost of pot perm is very expensive and has to be introduced into the system every three months. Not only that, it is a highly toxic chemical used to backwash the greensand filter and extremely hard to find dealers that will carry the product. We have now been introduced to the Iron Plus oxygen generator technology which uses natural air to oxidize the media bed which removes the following:

  1. H2S (hydrogen sulfide, rotten egg smell),10ppm
  2. Iron, up to 20 ppm
  3. Manganese, 5 ppm

This media retains a higher flow rate with less pressure drop. It requires very little maintenance. This system does not require micronizers, venturis or any type of air injection system that can get plugged with mineral deposit from the raw water. The media bed will last between 10 and 15 years. pH does not affect the media bed with this system. Berm, which is another media used in oxygen regeneration, requires a high pH. Also, an added benefit is it requires no salt or chemicals to backwash the media bed. Backwash rates are extremely low and backwash times and water consumption are 1/4 of the typical time for a greensand filter.

We have installed many of these systems. The installations are very simple and the systems are absolutely trouble-free, with basically zero maintenance. An added benefit is that, because the air is introduced into the water, the water is enhanced with a lot of oxygen which is very good for your health. So as you can see, there are many benefits for this system.

  • Our Happy Clients:

    Now with our new water system there has been a tremendous change. Most importantly we are healthier, the water tastes and smells like water again and not some chemical cocktail, also the skin problems have been reduced to minimal.

    Our hair and skin is soft and we use less body and house hold products. It was so nice to meet a professional who is certified and cares about clients needs. Thank you so much Lauren!

    You have restored my faith in the concept of living up to one’s word.

    As a result our drinking water was limited to the designated R.0. tap in the kitchen; however, with no way to monitor the efficiency of the filters we were never certain that our drinking water was safe.

    I am sure we will enjoy a long and stress-free relationship with you.

    I'm really happy with the work you did for me, the faucet installation and cut off valves on the pipes as well as my new pump. I am especially pleased with the Pentex pump saver.

    As you know, I was everywhere with my camera that day, so I captured most of what you were doing and attach the pictures as a reminder of a job well done.

    Thank you very much for replacing my pump in the correct fashion, and showing me the errors a previous well service company had made.
