  Everyone deserves clean water. That's our commitment to you. The Bioshield Groundwater Protection System eliminates biofilm forming iron related bacteria in the well to provide you with the cleanest, safest water possible.
 
 


Well water is contaminated by a variety of bacteria, which feed upon the minerals in the water. The presence of as little as 0.1 mg/L iron in well water will encourage the growth of bacteria. These bacteria combine dissolved iron and manganese with oxygen and use it to form rust-colored deposits and slime which build up on well screens, pipes and plumbing fixtures resulting in odors, stained surfaces and clogged plumbing or irrigation systems. Layers of insoluble iron and organic material from the bacteria block screens and pipes reducing well yields and water pressure. Traditional treatment methods work temporarily until clogged by the bacteria. The key to eliminating the problem is eliminating the bacteria at the source, in the well. The BioShield system is unique in this approach. HaloSan, is NSF certified for disinfection of potable water supplies. Learn how you can get PRISTINE water from your well!

AFFECTS OF IRON BACTERIA

  • Clogs occur in screens, pump intakes, pumps, and water distribution systems resulting in lower pressure and reduced flow
  • Damage to water heaters and pressure tanks
  • Damage to irrigation systems by clogging valves, misters, emitters, sprinklers resulting in reduced production and costly replacements
  • Slow killers of resin beds, filters and softeners
  • Overhead irrigation with water from wells with iron bacteria causes a blue sheen and dark spots on plant foliage which impacts photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration
