Water Filtration Air Injection Oxidizing System for Iron, Manganese and Sulphur
Eliminate Rust Stains and “Rotten Egg” Odors
The NWI system backwashes automatically to clean the media bed and flush oxidized Iron (Fe), Sulphur (H2S) and Manganese (Mn) down the drain. By utilizing a Patented Piston in the control valve, the NWI is able to put the Oxidation/Filtration Process inside one tank, with No Maintenance Costs.
The NWI can remove up to 8 ppm Hydrogen Sulfide, up to 7 ppm Iron and up to 5 ppm of manganese. A periodic backwash will remove accumulated contaminant and replenish the filter media bed. The regeneration process also adds a fresh air pocket to the system.
We use the exclusive Vortech Water Distribution and Cleaning System. Vortech tanks use 30% less water and clean the filtration media 80% better than the typical gravel tank.
Systems for Arsenic
The Patented Piston in the control valve, can put the Oxidation/Filtration Process inside one tank. The system oxidizes the arsenic in the water that allows the media to absorb it. There is a periodic backwash cycle to remove any dirt, sand, and oxidized iron particles that will go down the drain, and the media bed will be re-stratified in the tank during this cycle. Over time, the media will get to an ‘exhaustion’ point where it can no longer effectively reduce the arsenic in the water. This should be monitored periodically by testing the water to check the arsenic levels. When the arsenic levels in the outgoing water reach an unacceptable level, then it is recommended it is time to change the media.

Due to the health hazards of contaminated water, as the Homeowner, you must also take responsibility to monitor your system to ensure that it is still within safe operating limits. A water test should be performed after 6 months of system use. Please call the installing dealer to have this test performed so you can feel confident that the system is working properly. Additional water testing should be performed periodically to ensure there has been no additional well contamination or concentrations changed from prior testing.
