Sixty million Americans rely on private wells for their water. Untreated, some contain harmful levels of bacteria. Until now, the only way to make contaminated water safe was to treat it with a complicated home chlorinator.
But new technology from SpringWell Water Filtration Systems lets you use regular bleach to not only kill pathogens — microorganisms that cause disease — but also to neutralize iron bacteria that can coat your plumbing and bathroom fixtures with corrosive orange sludge.
In this SpringWell Water review, we’ll take a closer look at the company behind this innovative Chemical Injection System.
You’ll learn more about home water treatment and the many benefits of removing iron bacteria from fresher tasting water to fewer appliance repair bills. Let’s jump in.
SpringWell Chemical Injection System
SpringWell’s Chemical Injection System sanitizes water with chlorine. When you open a tap, bleach is dispensed from a solution tank, treating every drop you drink. Unlike old-school chemical injectors that require chlorine pellets, this system uses only household bleach. It’s simple to install, inexpensive to use and a breeze to maintain.
Compatible with PVC, copper and PEX pipes, it works automatically once it’s installed, operating so quietly that you won’t know it’s running. It won’t reduce your water pressure and chlorine odors are confined to the system. Your home won’t smell like a swimming pool.
Like all SpringWell water filters, the Chemical Injection System comes with a limited lifetime warranty and superior customer support. Your satisfaction is guaranteed — it’s a risk-free investment.
Q: How often do I have to add bleach?
A: It depends on your water usage. The pump runs only when water is flowing. The chlorine tank holds hold 35 gallons for long-lasting performance.
Q: Is this system compatible with water softeners and other filters?
A: Yes! It’s fully expandable. SpringWell recommends installing a sediment prefilter to prevent dirt from clogging the injection system. You can also add a filter that removes chlorine after it’s disinfected your water, so there’s no chemical aftertaste.
Q: What does maintenance involve?
A: Beyond adding bleach, you’ll need to clean the injection pump occasionally to remove debris, so it runs smoothly. The inexpensive pump tube and latches should be replaced periodically. The process takes minutes — it couldn’t be easier.
SpringWell’s Chemical Injection System won’t appeal to the tech junkie. There’s no Bluetooth or other bells and whistles to complicate things. But the beauty of low-tech equipment is that little can go wrong. If you want a worry-free, set-it-and-forget-it solution to bacteria in your well — you’ve found it.
Most homeowners can handle the installation. SpringWell has created a video to walk you through the process step-by-step. There are no heavy bags of chlorine pellets to move or store — add bleach and water when the tank gets low and take the rest of the day off.
The initial price is slightly higher than the competition’s, but the difference in component quality is noticeable. Parts feel sturdy, and SpringWell backs them up with a generous warranty. When your safety is at stake, reliability matters. SpringWell Water Filtration Systems has earned our trust.
The primary purpose of the SpringWell Chemical Injection System is to disinfect water, but its benefits are surprisingly far-reaching.
Chlorine injectors kill pathogens. Most people buy them to guarantee their water is safe to drink, but bacteria can cause unexpected problems. Iron bacteria, in particular, isn’t considered a health hazard, but it gives water an oily texture and coats plumbing with thick, rust-colored residue that stains bathroom fixtures, corrodes your plumbing and makes water-using appliances work harder.
SpringWell’s Chemical Injection System not only kills pathogens, but it also neutralizes iron bacteria, taming sulfur and manganese in the process. Your water will look, smell and taste better — and your appliances with thank you. You can add SpringWell’s Whole House Filtration System to remove any chlorine residue.
Flow rate reflects how fast water moves through a filter. Measured in gallons per minute, it’s an important clue to a system’s performance.
Taking a shower and filling a pasta pot each use 2-3 gallons of water per minute, so with a low-flow filter, you’ll notice an annoying drop in pressure when more than one tap is open. Multiply that by the number of faucets in your home, and your water needs can quickly surpass a system’s maximum output.
SpringWell filtration systems offer more than double the flow rate of similar models — 12 GPM versus the industry average of 9 GPM. No one should ever have to wait for water.
Design and Installation
SpringWell’s Chemical Injection System is added to your home’s main water supply line. Chlorine is dispensed whenever a tap is opened, killing bacteria for pennies per day.
The tank holds 35 gallons and must be installed vertically — you’ll need an outlet for the power supply. Engineered and assembled in America, components are independently certified for safety and performance.
Installation is easy for homeowners with basic plumbing skills. The easy-to-follow instructions guide you through the process step-by-step. Technicians are available by phone to assist — view SpringWell’s installation and maintenance videos online. If you’re not handy, it’s better to be safe than sorry and call a professional.
