Sulfates are a combination of sulfur and oxygen and are a part of naturally occurring minerals in some soil and rock formations that contain groundwater. The mineral dissolves over time and is released into groundwater. Elevated sulfate levels in combination with chlorine bleach can make cleaning clothes difficult. Sulfur-oxidizing bacteria produce effects similar to those of iron bacteria. They convert sulfide into sulfate, producing a dark slime that can clog plumbing and/or stain clothing. Blackening of water or dark slime coating the inside of toilet tanks may indicate a sulfur-oxidizing bacteria problem.
Hydrogen sulfide gas produces an offensive “rotten egg” or “sulfur water” odor and taste in the water. In some cases, the odor may be noticeable only when the water is initially turned on or when hot water is run. A nuisance associated with hydrogen sulfide includes its corrosiveness to metals such as iron, steel, copper and brass. It can tarnish silverware and discolor copper and brass utensils. Hydrogen sulfide also can cause yellow or black stains on kitchen and bathroom fixtures.
The Sulfur Guard is a water treatment system that contains Sulfaban, our exclusive and extremely effective media used to remove hydrogen sulfide gas from your water. When your water enters the Sulfur Guard System and comes in contact with the bed of Sulfaban media, Sulfaban eliminates the hydrogen sulfide gas, leaving you with fresh, odor-free water.
The Flag City Water Air Injection Oxidizing (AIO) system maintains an air pocket in the top of its media tank while the system is in service. As the water passes through the air pocket, sulfur is oxidized. Additionally, dissolved oxygen is added to the water. The AIO filter media bed then removes the sulfur from the water.
The Flag City Water Aeration System oxidizes the water by injecting pressurized air into the water system. During the aeration process, oxygen mixes with iron and hydrogen sulfide, precipitating these undesirable elements. The final stage of the process is when the water flows through the filtration tanks, producing naturally clean water.
The peroxide injection system helps remove the dangerous hydrogen sulfide gas from your household water. The preferred method of sulfur oxidation when using a chemical has to be hydrogen peroxide. This versatile chemical is a better oxidant when treating sulfur that any other commonly available chemical. It takes less chemical and requires less system maintenance than any other chemical treatment method currently available.
