A structure made up of many parts described below, that through a well-calibrated injection pump and valve allows the right amount of rust preventing chemical to mix with the irrigation water neutralizing the level of iron prior to making contact with any surface. This system is composed of:
- Plastic tank that holds the chemical that prevents the rust stains
- Injection pump
- Injection valve
- Clear flexible tubbing
- Black flexible tubbing
- Filter and accessories
- Green preventer chemical
The difference between this and the suction system is that the injection system uses the pipping that brings the well-water to the sprinklers.
On this pipping an injection valve is attached which communicates with the injection pump. The injection pump is then connected mecanically to the chemicals through the accessories previously mentioned. This pump is also connected to the irrigation timer. Once the irrigation system kicks on, it will also kick on the injection pump which will extract the chemical from the tank, mixing it with the water tha comes out of the well neutralizing the iron prior to affecting your property.
The rust controlling chemical inside the tank will get mixed automatically with the well-water once the irrigation system kicks on. This chemical reacts with the iron on the well-water prior to having any contact with your property. Thus, preventing the rust stains around your property. Characteristics of it:
- It DOES increase your electric bill since it requires electricity in order for the injection pump to function.
- 3 times more for installation cost than the suction system.
- More expensive to replace than the suction system, if it becomes damaged.
- Ideal for commercial areas that use 5hp or more to pump the water out of the well.
Note: consult an expert prior to installing or restoring this type of system.
