Water filters are effective ways to remove impurities from your water by means of a physical barrier, a chemical process, or a biological process. We offer different types of filters solutions, depending upon the composition of your water problem.


Iron Filters


If water passes through ground containing iron-bearing rock, it will collect iron and cause rust stains as well as other iron-related problems in the home. Iron will discolour your laundry, leave hard to clean stains, and jeopardize the quality of the water you drink. Expensive replacement and service repair of water-using appliances and fixtures are often incurred when iron is present.


A chemical-free ETF 2100 filtration system by EcoWater is a proven, low cost solution to problem iron, protecting your household from the invasive effects of not only ferrous (clear water iron), but also ferric (precipitated) iron. Unlike conventional methods of iron removal, the EcoWater filtration system requires no costly, messy chemicals, salt or expensive replacement cartridges.


This chemical-free iron removal system requires approximately 10% of the water a conventional filter uses to regenerate and requires no maintenance. Eliminate iron from your water. Consult McLeod’s EcoWater. Our specialist will recommend the appropriate model and size for your household or commercial application.


Sulfur Filters


A pungent rotten egg odour and/or black sediment accompanies sulfur or hydrogen sulfide. Sulfur levels dictate the type of treatment that can be used to eliminate this problem. Generally levels of sulfur less than 4 ppm can be removed by either a manganese greensand filter, which uses the chemical potassium permanganate to regenerate, or a chemical-free air injection filter with a mixing tank.


Levels of sulfur exceeding 4 ppm must be treated with a chemical feed system using either chlorine or hydrogen peroxide. The equipment required consists of a chemical feed pump, retention tank and an automatic carbon filter. This is the most effective method of removing high levels of sulfur in your water. As sulfur is a gas, water must be tested on site.


Turbidity Filters


Turbidity causes water to be murky. Turbidity can be caused by oxidized material, such as iron or sulfur; or by un-dissolved matter in the water. The 2100 Solid State filter, utilizing EcoWater’s specially designed multi-clean filter bed, removes silt and sediment and is particularly useful in lake water applications.
