Many areas in Ireland are not connected to a public scheme and as such have their own private well/ borehole to supply their homes. However, it is important to be aware of the risks posed to water coming from private wells. Soil protects to an extent but if your well is shallow, it is vulnerable to contamination. The quality of well water can also vary throughout the year depending on climatic conditions such as heavy rainfall or dry spells.
Well water or any other type of naturally sourced raw water in Ireland can leave the end-user with many different issues. From excessive lime in water, unpleasant smells, and bacterial contamination to leaving stains on your clothes and fixtures, the problems are endless.
Furthermore, the quality of water coming from natural sources cannot be regulated, it becomes the homeowner responsibility to ensure you are using clean and safe water.
We supply a wide range of well water treatment systems including water softeners, iron & manganese removal units, ultraviolet lights, pH balancing units, sulphur removal systems, and many more. Our specialist well water filtration systems improve the water quality in your premises, and also provide pure clean drinking water by removing existing contaminants.
We always recommend that you have a full water analysis carried out on your water supply. This will allow you and us to know exactly what the issue is with your water supply, as well as specifying the correct system for your particular needs. Depending on the level of contaminants in the water you may qualify for a grant that can help with the cost of resolving your water issue.
Hard water is almost certainly found in most private wells. Remove excessive hardness present in your water and prevent the damage caused by limescale build-up by installing a water softening system for your well.
Remove brown or black stains on your appliances created by the water coming in your home from your well by choosing iron and manganese removal filters. Our advanced filtration systems are a cost-effective way to eliminate stains caused due to excessive iron or manganese in the water
Unpleasant metallic tastes, rust particles, staining on the bath and sink and other plumbing fixtures, or red water are indicators that you may have high iron or manganese in the water.
Natural sources of iron and manganese are more common in deeper wells where the water has been in contact with rock for a longer time. Water coming from wells with high iron and/or manganese may appear colourless initially but orange-brown (iron) or black (manganese) stains or particles quickly appear as the water is exposed to air (oxygen).
Our iron and manganese filter systems can effectively remove iron and manganese from your water supply and provide you with excellent quality water for your home.
