Frequently Asked Questions
“Iron filter” is a very misunderstood term. It used to mean a “greensand” filter, which is regenerated with potassium permanganate but those systems have fallen out of favor in the last 20 years. Nowadays it’s loosely applied to any unit that treats for iron.
Over 80% of our customers who are having the systems installed for their personal use choose the rental option.
The average price for a single system (metered softener, automatic neutralizer etc.) sells for about $1,895.00 installed or rents for $33.00 a month. To rent a combination of two systems is $55.00 a month. There is an installation charge of $285.00 for single unit systems and $485.00 for most two-unit systems. Two units are required about half the time. All pricing is subject to CT sales tax.
Our Softeners use about 65 gallons over 90 minutes. Our automatic filters such as neutralizers and carbons use about 150 gallons over about an hour.
The water treatment wastewater codes were changed in 2014 and again in 2018. Currently neutralizers, carbon systems and reverse osmosis systems may backwash to the septic. All other systems should backwash to a drywell. The current water treatment wastewater health code is available in our self-help section.
We print a synopsis of the current water treatment wastewater health code on the back of our proposals and have the full code posted in our “self help” section.
