- This hydrogen peroxide injection system is designed to remove impurities in your water such as iron and hydrogen sulfide. Using a chemical feed pump (D), we inject hydrogen peroxide into the water coming from your well.
- The hydrogen peroxide is used to drop out or oxidize the impurities in your water.
- The 12″x52″ mixing tank (B) is used for mixing the hydrogen peroxide with your water and to get additional contact time with the hydrogen peroxide ensuring that all the impurities are completely oxidized out of the water.
- The Centaur carbon filter (E) is used to remove any residual hydrogen peroxide that is not used in the oxidation process.
- This system is designed with a flow switch (G). This will tell the hydrogen peroxide pump (D) to inject the hydrogen peroxide/water mixture only when water is used inside your home. This allows us to leave your outside water untreated.
After your system has been installed there are a few things that you will need to do to keep your water treated.
- Keep the hydrogen peroxide tank (C) supplied with a mixture of treated water from tap (J) and hydrogen peroxide. The mixture is usually 3 gallons of water to one gallon of 8% hydrogen peroxide. This mixture may vary depending on the severity of the water problems.
- You will need to flush the residue from the bottom of the 12″ x 52″ mixing tank (B) using the flush valve (H) at least once a month. Make sure that you open a conditioned water faucet somewhere in your home when you are flushing the 12″x52″ mixing tank (B).
- The flow switch (G) should be checked and cleaned periodically depending on the amount of impurities that you have in your water. To accomplish this, start by closing the water shut-off after the 12″ x 52″ mixing tank (B). Then close the water shut-off after the flow switch (G). Now open the tap (J) and release the water pressure. Once the water pressure is released, you can open the flow switch (G) and clean it. Take the plunger out and rinse it off. Now re-install it and close tap (J) and open both of the water shut-off valves.
- The Centaur carbon filter (E) has a timer that needs to be set properly. If the timer is not set to the current time, the regeneration cycle could occur during the day when you are using water in the house to do laundry or dishes. When this Centaur carbon filter (E) is in regeneration, it is not filtering the water, so make sure that you keep the timer set to the correct time. (See owner’s manual for timer setting instructions)
- The Centaur carbon filter (E) is used to remove residual hydrogen peroxide and oxidized contaminates from the water. When the media is fully exhausted it will need to be changed. You will most likely notice a slight odor in the water when this occurs. Just give us a call and we can easily take care of this for you. Most systems that we install need their filter medias replaced somewhere between one and three years.
- Some cleaning maintenance will be needed on the hydrogen peroxide pump (D) and the injection point (F). For information on this, please refer to the hydrogen peroxide pump owner’s manual.
