Well Water Treatment Systems | Industrial & Commercial
Well water treatment systems are used to purify water and eliminate impurities from all types of well water (dug wells - driven wells - drilled wells).
To have the right and the most efficient well water treatment system, you need to correctly analyze the well water chemistry and to have a fundamental understanding of how the well water system works.
Most water treatment systems perform within certain conditions. Well water for example here is naturally acidic with iron in it and many iron filtration systems can not remove iron 100% if the water is acidic, therefore, the well water acidity has to be treated first.
Prior to choosing a treatment system, the well water has to be tested and analyzed for chemical contaminants, bacteria, bad tastes, odors and staining. It also needs to be tested for iron, manganese, total dissolved solids, pH, calcium, hardness, alkalinity, turbidity, arsenic, nitrate, sulfate, chloride, sodium, lead...etc.
Types of Well Water Treatment Methods & Systems:
Well water treatment by reverse osmosis systems:
Reverse osmosis systems with activated carbon filters can remove wide spectrum of contaminants such as organic chemicals, chlorine, pesticides, herbicides, dissolved salts, lead, mercury, calcium, iron, asbestos, cysts...etc.
Here is a list of the best RO systems for well water treatment:
Well water treatment by water filtration systems:
Water media filter systems can remove iron, manganese, chromium, selenium, arsenic...etc.
Here is a list of the best water filtration systems for well water treatment:
Well water treatment by water softener systems:
Water softening systems removes ions from water that causes water hardness, like calcium, magnesium, iron...etc.
Here is a list of the best water softener systems for well water treatment:
Well water treatment by UV sterilizer systems:
For water disinfection, Ultraviolet (UV) water sterilizers can eliminate microorganisms in water
Here is a list of the best UV sterilizer systems for well water treatment:
Cost of well water treatment systems:
The cost of each system depends on so many factors:
- Water analysis.
- Required flow rate.
- The process: reverse osmosis, media filtration, water softening, UV sterilization...etc.

Frequently asked question:
Q: Can you drink well water?
A: Most groundwater is claimed to be safe, but it has to be tested periodically as it can become contaminated with microorganisms, heavy metals, lead, copper, fluoride and more.
Q: Does well water need to be filtered?
A: Running the proper water analysis for a well water will determine if it is safe for use and drinking or if needs to be treated and filtered
Q: Do well water UV treatment systems work?
A: UV sterilizers can treat well water by killing bacteria and other microorganisms as they pass by the UV lamp. A UV treatment system mostly used with a sediment filter. Such sediment can contain bacteria which will decrease the effectiveness of the system.
Q: How clean is well water?
A: It always recommended to run a water analysis on the well water you are questioning to make sure how clean it is.
Q: How do well water treatment systems work?
A: It depends on the process and technology. Well water treatment can be done through reverse osmosis, water filters, UV sterilizers and water softeners.
Q: How do you treat well water?
A: To choose the best method to treat a well water you have to run water analysis to find out what are you going to remove or filter off the water to make it drinkable and safe to use.
Q: How much does a well water treatment system cost?
A: The cost of any well water treatment system can be determined by different factors: water analysis, flow rate, the treatment method...etc.
Q: How to treat hard well water?
A: Water softener systems are the best way to treat well water hardness. It helps to remove the ions that case water hardness.
Q: What is the best water filtration system for well water?
A: There is more than one selection when it comes to well water filtration system. Check our best water filters

The idea of industrial Reverse Osmosis (RO) is to use high-pressure produced from motorized pumps to push water in the opposing direction of osmotic pressure so that the water source with the higher concentration of contaminants is forced to pass through the semi-permeable membrane instead of the water with lower concentration of salinity, or salt content. This allows reverse osmosis [...]
Brackish groundwater treatment by reverse osmosis has become a universally proven method to providing large amounts of clean, potable water to municipalities, businesses, and many industries that require fresh water for a vast array of uses and applications.By far the biggest use of fresh water sources is for irrigation purposes and raising livestock—and it accounts for 69 percent of fresh [...]
Brackish water generally refers to any water source with a TDS, or total dissolved solids, level between 1,000 and 15,000 ppm. Of the many vast sources of water on the Earth’s surface only 3 percent of it is considered to be fresh water—from sources like glaciers, wetlands, mangroves, lakes, rainwater, estuaries, and aquifers. Although they are labeled fresh water sources, [...]
Industrial and Commercial Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO)It is a well-known fact that a good portion—about 71 percent to be exact—of the Earth’s surface is covered in water. However, not all of that water is usable. 97 percent of all of the water on Earth is sea or ocean water. Fresh water sources make up only about 3 percent of [...]
Filtered water obtained through reverse osmosis (RO) processes have many applications across countless industries, and can potentially help to cut costs at any stage of industrial or commercial production, for many different uses. Because the difference between commercial and industrial systems can be negligible at times, there is often times common ground between the commercial and industrial applications of reverse osmosis.Reverse [...]
What is Municipal Wastewater?Municipal wastewater, commonly known as sewage, consists of wastewater discharge from residential and restaurant bathrooms, kitchen, dishwashers and washing machines. It includes bathroom and kitchen wastewater from commercial and industrial facilities, as well. Municipal wastewater also consists of treated or partially treated industrial wastewater that is mixed with bathroom and kitchen wastewater. If untreated municipal wastewater finds its [...]
What is the advantage of desalination? List of advantages of desalination:It provides people with potable water (clean & fresh drinking water).It provides water to the agricultural industry.The water quality is safe (not dangerous or hazardous to any living thing).It uses tried-and-tested technology (the method is proven and effective).It would preserve current freshwater supplies.It has the [...]
Desalination is the removing of salt and minerals from sea water to make it suitable for human consumption & industrial use. This is mostly by employing reverse osmosis to force salt water through membranes that allow water molecules to pass but blocks the molecules of salt & minerals.In other terms, desalination changes sea water into [...]
Antiscalant chemicals are used to prevent the scaling & fouling of the RO membranes. Scale may consist of mineral fouling such as calcium sulfate, calcium carbonate, barium sulfate, silica, calcium fluoride, and strontium sulfate. The Antiscalant dosing should be done before reaching the RO membranes to break up sulfate precipitates, calcium carbonate, and other mineral [...]
