Chlorine is highly effective in destroying
microorganisms in water. It is also a powerful
oxidizer used to precipitate various contaminants in
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
4. For livestock application requiring chlorine
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.
Are required on both sides of the injection point in
order to be able to isolate the injector for cleaning
and testing purposes.
Optional when all water is not being treated - the
flow switch is installed after the untreated water
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
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.
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.
Should be installed after each piece of equipment in
order to analyze operating performance.
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
Bypass valves are recommended on every filter and
softener. PVC plumbing is recommended over
Do not use polybutylene pipe with total chlorine
levels over 2 ppm.
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.
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.
