A chlorination system can consist of the following:
- Chlorinator: A chemical feed pump designed to inject a predetermined level of chlorine into the water. Chlorine will kill bacteria and oxidize high levels of iron, manganese, and sulfur.
- Retention Tank: This tank is used to insure contact time for a proper bacteria kill, and/or time to completely oxidize iron and sulfur.
- Multimedia Filters: Used for removal of oxidized iron and sulfur.
- Carbon Filter: Removes chlorine and/or organics which may be present in water.
