Chlorine is highly effective in destroying microorganisms in water. It is also a powerful oxidizer used to precipitate various contaminants in water. With the introduction of the chemical free iron filter and ultraviolet, the number of chlorination applications has been reduced. However, there are still cases where a full-line chlorination system is the best solution for some water problems. Information is available concerning the alternate use of hydrogen peroxide for specialty applications.

Following are the conditions where we recommend the installation of a full-line chlorination system: 1. Where hydrogen sulfide exceeds 3.0 ppm 2. Where combined levels of iron, manganese and sulfur exceed the limits for the chem-free or the iron & sulfur filter 3. Where disinfection is required to make the water bacteriologically safe 4. For livestock application requiring chlorine residuals 5. For community wells 6. To comply with user’s personal reference (type of recommendation by governments).

WE HAVE THREE BASIC MODELS: ECONOMY, STANDARD, AND DELUXE.

Each model has its benefits which will be described. Most Chlorination Systems consist of the following items:

Chemical Feeder/Solution Tank

The injection point should be installed after the pressure tank and before the holding tank. This pump is wired to the pressure switch of the water pump (s). Thus, it is important that the chemical pump be the same voltage as the water pump. Specify 115V or 230V when ordering. The injector and anti-syphon valves should be cleaned regularly according to the maintenance instructions provided with the pump.

Chemical Feed Solution

Is most often a mixture of household bleach (5.25% chlorine). Do not use a powdered pool type of bleach. If you must dilute the chlorine, be sure to use clean, treated water for mixing; otherwise, the mixture will be too weak to work and a sludge will build up on the bottom of your solution tank.

Shut-Off Valves

Are required on both sides of the injection point in order to be able to isolate the injector for cleaning and testing purposes.

Flow Switch

Optional when all water is not being treated - the flow switch is installed after the untreated water lines.

Retention Tank

Water should always be fed in at the bottom and the outlet should be at the top. A bleed off valve should be installed at the lowest point of the tank. Retention of at least 20 minutes is required as calculated by the tank size and the recommended 4- 5 USGPM flow rate. Chlorine must have this time for an effective bacteria kill and to oxidize contaminants. At 5 USGPM, a 100 gallon retention tank would be required.

Multi-Media Filter

Installed after the retention tank to collect suspended matter such as clay, silt or ferric iron or oxidized manganese or sulfur. Pressure loss usually indicates more frequent backwash is required.

Activated Carbon Filter

Will remove any residual chlorine and trace organics in the water, improving taste and odor. Pressure loss or chlorine slippage usually indicates more frequent backwashes are required.

Water Softener

Installed after filtration equipment. The water softener should be applied when the water tests more than 1 gpg total hardness. Sizing of the correct model of softener should be done according to the normal three day sizing formula.

Test Cocks

Should be installed after each piece of equipment in order to analyze operating performance.

Plumbing

Should be in good order and all taps indicated should be installed. All plumbing, including pressure tank fittings should be a minimum of 3/4” for good flow rates and healthy backwash flows. A minimum of 20 psi should be maintained throughout the system. Bypass valves are recommended on every filter and softener. PVC plumbing is recommended over galvanized steel. Do not use polybutylene pipe with total chlorine levels over 2 ppm.

pH

If the pH is below 6.5, it must be increased to allow for efficient oxidation by the chlorine. This can be accomplished with the addition of soda ash by a separate feed system.

Regeneration Time

All filters and the softener should regenerate/backwash every three days. The time of regeneration/backwash must be staggered to avoid having more than one unit backwashing at one time.
