Let’s be honest, it’s no fun dealing with well water. Not only does some well water taste and smell horrible, it can lead to corrosion and expensive replacement of plumbing fixtures and appliances. One of the best systems for treating well water is a hydrogen peroxide injection system.
Hydrogen peroxide injection works better than other treatment systems because it works faster, leaves no chemical residue and is effective over a wider pH range. Plus, it doesn’t negatively affect taste the way some other systems do.
However, your hydrogen peroxide injection system is only as good as the effort put into maintaining it. Regular maintenance will help keep it working at peak performance. Here are just a few reasons why proper maintenance is so important.
Flushing Residue Keeps the Pump Running Smoothly
About once a month, you’ll want to flush the chemical residue from the pump. This is important because as your filtration system is hard at work removing impurities from your water, an accumulation of chemical residue can occur and interfere with the pumps ability to operate at peak performance. A regular monthly flush can solve this problem and extend the life of the unit.
Staying on Schedule with Filter Changes
In terms of filtration systems, the hydrogen peroxide injection system doesn’t require much in terms of filter care. It contains a carbon filter with a relatively long lifespan of about 1 to 3 years. Because the carbon filter lasts for so long, it can be easy to forget about it entirely. However, it’s very important to check the carbon filter and replace as necessary.
The carbon filter is a powerhouse in the filtration system. After the hydrogen peroxide does its work, the carbon filter works to remove sediment, odors, and iron. Without a clean, functioning carbon filter, your injection system is only getting about half of the job done.
When your filtration system is running inefficiently, not only are precious resources being wasted, but you also can’t be certain of the quality and safety of your drinking water.
Regular Maintenance Contributes to a Longer Life Span
As with just about anything, the better you take care of something, the longer it will take care of you. Your hydrogen peroxide filtration system is an investment, and we don’t mean just monetarily. This type of filtration system is an investment in your health and wellbeing.
Taking the time to properly care and maintain your hydrogen peroxide filtration system ensures that it will keep working to protect the quality of your drinking water for many years to come. The various components are less likely to break down or need replacing. There are few things worse than discovering that the quality of your water has been compromised due to lack of maintenance.
