Sulfur Shield systems for Hydrogen Sulfide removal.
If rotten egg odors from Sulfur have you in “time out”, you need our Sulfur Shield System® to remove Hydrogen Sulfide, Iron and Manganese!
We call these contaminants, the “troublesome trio”!
Sulfur Shield systems are recommended when your water contains both Hydrogen Sulfide and bacteria, because Sulfur Shield systems use a disinfectant during the backwash cycle for improved performance.
Sulfur with bacteria is common in Chicago, including Aurora, East Dundee, Elgin, Barrington, Schaumburg, Naperville, and Geneva!
It is also essential for the well pump to produce sufficient flow for proper backwash so the filter media is properly cleaned. This process is performed automatically.
How it works!
Sulfur Shield systems utilize oxygen, contained in your water and fresh ambient air drawn into the filter tank during the cleaning cycle to oxidize Hydrogen Sulfide, Iron and Manganese, so they drop out of solution to form particles, which are easily filtered.
Periodically, the Sulfur Shield system initiates a backwash cycle so the oxidized particles are flushed from the filter, automatically.
Sulfur Shield systems do not need chemicals for oxidation. However, if your water contains bacteria, water treatment chemicals may be required for disinfection.
