Hydrogen Peroxide Benefits & FAQ’s

Why Choose Hydrogen Peroxide?

Love Clean,Clear, Safe Water again with a Hydrogen Peroxide Well Water Treatment System. West Country Pump and Filtration’s Custom Peroxide Filtration System is a dynamic oxidizing agent , more impressive then aeration, chlorine or potassium permanganate. Hydrogen Peroxide also known as H202 , breaks- down into oxygen and water leaving no traces of chemical residues. Water Sources such as water wells that contain iron, iron bacteria, manganese and/or “rotten egg” sulfur odor “H2S” (Hydrogen Sulfide Gas) can benefit from our West Country Pump and Filtration H202 Extreme Hydrogen Peroxide System for treating your water.

Hydrogen Peroxide when added to water a considerable amount of dissolved oxygen is released and a dynamic oxidizing response takes place. Coliform and Iron bacteria are extirpated , and tannins are oxidized. The West Country Pump and Filtration H202 Extreme Hydrogen Peroxide System is reliable and effective on some of the most unfavorable water sources .

The Peroxide oxidizes the iron, manganese and sulfur odors to a solid formation that the new generation carbon can take out. Peroxide has an upper hand over chlorine as a water source disinfectant as a result of its chemical composition. It disinfects by oxidization, separating into water and oxygen. When it comes to well water treatment, there is generally bacteria that is not removed with chlorine. When it comes to effectiveness between peroxide and chlorine, chlorine is only some what effective when it comes to reducing odor from H2S,removing iron bacteria, iron and manganese.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is Hydrogen Peroxide Safe when added to water?

The answer is Yes. For example 3% peroxide is sold in many retail outlets like, many pharmacies, Wal-marts, health food stores,etc. 3% Hydrogen Peroxide when mixed with one-part water can be used as an oral-debriding agent to eliminate any bacteria in your mouth just by rinsing or gargling with it. Chlorine however would never be recommended at any concentration as a mouthwash , so why treat your well water with it.

2. Can the Hydrogen Peroxide handle large amounts of Iron in the water?

Absolutely ! Hydrogen Peroxide rapidly reacts among the dissolved iron, converting it from “dissolved ferrous” iron to “solid ferric’ iron in a fraction of a second. Once oxidized the iron becomes a solid and is then easily filtered. Substantial amounts of iron will require significant filtration, which will leave you with Clean, Clear, Safe Water!

3. Why use Hydrogen Peroxide instead of Bleach or Chlorine?

Sodium Hypochlorite otherwise known as Chlorine/Bleach is an effective oxidizer. Nonetheless , it has an awful odor, if you drink it leaves a bad taste in your mouth, as well it produces toxic consequences Trihalomenthanes which are recognized carcinogens. Hydrogen Peroxide an environmentally favorable alternative to Sodium Hypochlorite (Chlorine/Bleach) and does not produce the same effects as mentioned above.

4. When it comes to my Septic System will Hydrogen Peroxide affect it?

Not at all. Hydrogen Peroxide adds oxygen into the environment vs removing it unlike Chlorine/Bleach. The “aerobic bacteria” flourish in an oxygenated environment which septic systems strive for.
