The Aeration Kit alone is designed for water that contains hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
Aeration also enhances the performance of Catalox and Birm/AG media in more difficult applications as it begins the oxidation process which precipitates iron, manganese and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). This oxidization simply makes maintenance-free iron systems work more effectively.
This well water aerator consists of 3 parts combined into two stages. The first stage is the Hydrocharger, or Air Injector, that draws air into the water line prior to the pressure tank. Then, after the pressure tank, the air is mixed with the water in a Mixing Tank Assembly and the excess air is vented out the top. Be sure to check your iron level. If the iron level is higher than .3 ppm we recommend following the Aeration kit with an iron/sulfur system. Here is a link to our self-cleaning iron, sulfur, and manganese removal system - http://www.puriteam.com/products/PurHome-FTP-Iron-Sulfur-Manganese-Removal.html The Aeration has no limit to sulfur odor.
This system is designed to be used with a Submersible pump; if you have a Jet Pump you will need an additional air pump and flow switch which adds an additional $649.00 to the cost of the Aeration kit. If you have a Jet Pump please call us toll free @ 888-491-4100 to place your order.

Q: Where do I install this system?
A: The Aeration Kit comes in two pieces. The first piece will need to be installed prior to your pressure tank. The second piece will need to be installed after your pressure tank.
Q: Are there any maintenance requirements for this system?
A: No, this system requires no maintenance and will last 10 plus years.
Q: Does this system require electricity?
A: No electricity is required for the basic Hydrocharger set-up; it simply draws and releases air manually. However if you have a Jet Pump you will need an air pump and a flow switch which do require electricity.
Q: How easy is it to install the Aeration Kit?
A: Detailed installation instructions and supplied and fittings are included to make it easy to understand and install the Aeration system. Also, you or your plumber may contact our knowledgeable Customer Service Technicians for further assistance during the installation process. Installation instructions are available on our website for easy downloading.
Q: Will this system remove Sulfur Bacteria?
A: No, the only way to keep Sulfur Bacteria under control is with a chemical feed system. If you are dealing with Sulfur Bacteria call us for a proper recommendation.
Q: Can I use this system if I have a Jet Pump?
A: This system is designed to be used with a Submersible pump; if you have a Jet Pump you will need an additional air pump and flow switch which adds an additional $649.00 to cost of the Aeration kit. If you have a Jet Pump please call us toll free @ 888-491-4100 to place your order.
Q: What is the difference between a Submersible pump and a Jet Pump?
Submersible pumps push fluid to the surface as opposed to jet pumps having to pull fluids.

I ordered this system because I wanted something to treat my well water that didn't involve salt and constant maintenance. I love the system, but when we were installing it, we discovered that the instructions were outdated. They were also a bit sketchy. More detailed instructions would have made it a perfect purchase.
