Discover Our Industry-Leading Iron and H2S Filter
The Iron Breaker III offers a “natural” solution for removing iron and H2S with a proven patented technology that uses an oxidation process to eliminate iron and H2S without chemicals, without air compressors, without aerators, and without other complex equipment.
The Iron Breaker III is the only system on the market that employs this unique technology and is backed by decades of research and development, made and assembled in the USA, and distributed quickly through our strategic distribution centers across the U.S.
Proven Patented Technology
The Iron Breaker III uses an oxidation process to eliminate iron and H2S without chemicals, air compressors, aerators, and other complex equipment.
Optional Ozone Generator
When you add Charger’s ozone generator option, the Iron Breaker III system is automatically sanitized during the regeneration process for simple and affordable upkeep.
A Natural Self-Contained Solution
The Iron Breaker III stores a “bubble” of air, compressed by your well pressure, within the media tank. As your water passes thru the air, the iron or H2S is converted to a particle which is then trapped by the catalytic filter media in the tank while the air “bubble” is gradually consumed by the passing water. When the system regenerates, the unit first “backwashes” itself, removing trapped iron particles. The system then replenishes the “air bubble” by drawing in atmosphere, temporarily emptying the tank of all water, and transferring oxygen molecules into and on the surface of the media bed where all oxidation occurs. The system then returns to the “service” position, again filtering your water.

Longer lasting,brighter clothes
Does it seem like your clothes don’t stay bright like when you first brought them home from the store? Do your white clothes take on an orange or red color after a few washes? Iron and other minerals can cause clothes to stain over time and the mineral literally beats up your clothing during the wash cycle. Charger’s Iron filters remove these unwanted minerals so you can enjoy brighter brights and whiter whites.
Cleaner, more manageable hair
Iron, sulfates, and other minerals can cause damage to your hair rendering even the most expensive shampoos and conditioners useless. Get beautiful, flawless hair naturally by fixing the root of the problem – your water!
Reduce dry skin
Hard water minerals and iron bond with soap to leave a scummy residue on your skin when you shower or bathe. While your skin may feel “squeaky” clean, that squeak is just the residue left behind to dry out your skin. Charger’s Iron Breaker III reduces these clingy minerals leaving your skin slick and smooth without the grimy residue.
Extend the life of your water-using appliances
Imagine that your plumbing & pipes are the veins running through your home and the water is the lifeblood. Now imagine injecting harmful minerals or contaminants into those veins and think of all the areas in your home that water touches. Your water heater, boiler, washing machine, dishwasher, faucets, fixtures, coffee pots, humidifiers, dishes, glassware and even your clothes, skin, and hair are affected, not to mention the water you then consume. The only way to ensure your home’s appliances will live longer lives is to make sure your water is clean and free of contaminants and damaging minerals.
What causes iron stains?
Iron comes in two not-so-delicious flavors: ferrous and ferric. Ferrous iron is also called “clear water iron” because you can’t actually see it in your water. However, after water evaporates off your sinks, toilets, showers, faucets, and fixtures, BAM! You’ve got a reddish orange stain left behind. So sneaky, right?!
Ferric iron is known as “red water iron” because you can see the discoloration in the water as it runs out of your faucets. This type of iron is typically easier to clean off your sinks, tubs, showers, and fixtures and can typically be filtered out of your water. Ferrous iron must be oxidized first and then filtered. If you don’t have a tremendous amount of ferric iron, it can also be treated through a natural process called ion exchange.
How to remove iron staining?
The best way to remove iron is to prevent it from building up in the first place. However, if those sneaky little iron particles have already attached themselves to the surfaces throughout your home, don’t fear, there’s a simple fix. The first step is to call Smart Living Water Purification so that we can let you know what type of iron is present and provide you a solution for cleaning it off your surfaces. We will also let you know how to fix the root of the problem to prevent future staining.
What’s causing the sulfur smell in my water?
Hydrogen sulfide isn’t the only culprit that can cause your water to take on a disgusting scent of rotten egg. Iron-reducing bacteria and sulfate-reducing bacteria can both create this unpleasant odor as well. Surprisingly, iron and sulfates can build up in your water heater creating a slime which produces a smelly gas. Pretty gross, right? The good news is, a Smart Living Water Purification professional can help you determine the real cause of your water issues and provide you with treatment options that will leave your home smelling much better.
