The Iron Filter That Also Removes Sulfur and Manganese:
Our Terminox® ISM backwashing iron filter is an all purpose chemical free, salt free and maintenance free well water iron filter system. The Terminox® ISM removes iron, rust, sulfur, manganese, dirt, turbidity, tastes, odors and even strong chemicals like chlorine. It is the most advanced well water filter ever designed and sold exclusively by Budget Water®. No harsh chemicals, no salt and nothing to add or replace. You just "set it and forget it". Compare to iron filters costing three times as much or more. Remember we use only the finest national name brand components on everything we sell. This iron, sulfur and manganese conditioner is our most popular whole house iron removal water filter. It has a much better water filtration capability than birm filters or air injection and pump methods. We sell virtually any type of iron filter and well water filter you can imagine, but Terminox® ISM is the best of them all. Please let our friendly expert technicians help you determine the right filter for you. Don't worry, our techs are never allowed to ask you to buy anything and they do not work on commission. They are simply there to give you great advice and be nice. We also offer you lifetime technical support. This support is available 7 days a week including Sundays and holidays. This industry leading support means you should never have to pay for an expensive service call. BEWARE of "slicksters" and "snake oil salesmen" trying to sell water softeners as iron filters. You never use a water softener as an iron filter.

Additional Iron Removing Filters
Manganese Greensand Filters are some times good for really low flow rates, but are rarely the best iron filter. The reason we normally try to stay away from these, though we do sell them, is that they use a strong chemical called potassium permanganate. We try to keep our customers from the need to use harsh or poisonous chemicals. Be sure you have spoken with one of our expert techs before you buy one.

Birm Filters do not require chemicals for regeneration, but do require air injection and a much higher pH for correct operation. Most people don't realize that a birm filter should have a pH of 8.0 or higher for proper operation. Especially if you have both iron and manganese in your water. Be sure you have spoken with one of our expert techs before you buy one. Click here to view our complete line of Birm Filter sizes and prices.
Pyrolox Filter systems also do not require chemicals for regeneration or air injection. In fact, Pyrolox used to be our main line of iron filter before we developed the far superior Terminox® ISM. While Pyrolox works fairly well if you only have one issue or contaminant, such as iron, the Pyrolox does not seem to work as well if you have more than one contaminant. This is a problem for all Pyrolox units offered by all companies. For example if you have iron, sulfur and manganese, the Pyrolox can often get overwhelmed. It also may need to be re-bedded every few years. The Terminox® ISM was designed to work with multiple contaminants and should never need to be re-bedded when properly applied. Also the Pyrolox is far more sensitive to pH problems. Low pH can degrade the mineral in a very short time and cause it to need to be replaced. Be sure you have spoken with one of our expert techs before you buy one. Please click here to view our complete line of Pyrolox Filter sizes and prices.
Acid Neutralizer systems operate by passing acidic, or low pH water through either Calcite or Calcite Plus minerals to raise the pH. Some acid neutralizers correct pH by injecting a mixture of water and soda ash into your water line. Remember to be wary of people who suggest you use any type of acid neutralizer to remove iron. You should never use minerals that raise pH inside of any iron filter or sulfur filter. Be sure you have spoken with one of our expert techs before you buy one.

Iron Bacteria can cause problems for your new iron filter. To check to see if you have iron bacteria click here.
Chemical Feeder Systems often called chlorine injection, is the most common way to control iron bacteria and most low pH issues when used in conjunction with a Terminox® ISM filter. Be sure to speak with one of our expert techs before you buy a chemical feed system. Click here to view our complete line of Chemical Feeder Systems sizes and prices.
In Line Filters are removable cartridge filters that you can use to remove sediment or small amounts of red water iron or rust. Just remember that any measurable amount of iron should normally be removed with a backwashing iron filter such as the Terminox® ISM. Just be sure to speak with one of our friendly expert techs before you buy. Click here to view our complete line of In Line Filters sizes and prices.
Your iron filter can remove iron from water as well as sulfur, manganese, turbidity, chlorine, dirt, tastes, odors and many other contaminants from the entire home or house. Our most popular iron removal system is Terminox® ISM. These whole house iron filtration systems are of the highest quality and designed to last many years. When removing iron from water, be sure to ask for advice from our well water technicians before you buy your new iron filter. Iron and water don't belong together. No one wants iron in their home's drinking water. With our new Terminox® ISM Filter you have no reason to put up with well water iron at all. Let us take your iron out.
Remember that any pH below 7.0 can damage any iron filtration equipment and most proper iron filtration requires an even higher pH. You should contact our tech support staff before buying your new iron filter.

Just look at our home page to see our many appropriate certifications. You will find them all in the top third of the page.
