The Answer to Iron in Bore Water

16 June 2022

Farms in Australia frequently depend on bore water for their water systems. Unfortunately, a bore water source can bring forward many issues in regard to quality.

Perhaps the most widely recognized issue experienced with bore water is iron fouling. This is when iron particles build up in the water, causing iron scaling and rust. The ramifications of iron fouling are huge across farms, as iron can cause blockages in pipes drippers, and nozzles, reducing the flow of water

Iron is found in numerous groundwater sources in Australia. Water that is low in oxygen drains through landforms containing iron, it ultimately arrives at the subsurface where the iron breaks down into the water.

When oxygen is once again introduced to this water, through a water system or siphoning procedures, the iron can bond with the oxygen, causing rust precipitation. The interaction generally happens after some time, meaning the perfectly clear water you initially siphoned step by step turns sloppy and red.

Luckily, there are answers for preventing iron fouling from making your water supply an issue. Specifically, a Reactive Water treatment system can disrupt the connections between iron oxide particles, freeing them to travel through your framework without blockages.

Reactive Water’s innovation is introduced on your current water foundation and utilizations an electromagnetic field to separate the connections between minerals, so unblocking pipes downstream of the treatment site while additionally forestalling rescaling.

As well as clearing and reducing iron scale and making minerals more bioavailable, a Reactive Water system is also great for issues with saltiness. With the capacity to improve the water quality and reduce problems from arising, Reactive Water’s innovative technology is right for any farm.
