How Does the Iron Curtain System Work? 

Mineral-rich water is forced through an aeration tank, which converts dissolved minerals such as iron, manganese and sulfur into physical particles. These mineral particles then circulate in the system where they are trapped in the filter tank. This way, the highest level of dissolved minerals can be easily removed from your water. When the aeration tank’s oxygen level nears depletion, the ProMate 6 controller automatically puts it into an air recharge cycle based on the gallons of water being filtered, providing you aeration on demand. When the filter tank is saturated with iron particles, the controller automatically puts it into a regeneration cycle flushing the trapped iron particles to drain during off peak hours to maintain efficient filtration of iron particles. Regeneration frequency can occur based on days and/or gallons being filtered.

Hellenbrand Water Center Customer Service employee wearing jeans and a light blue shirt.Water is continuously on the move, traveling through soil, city filtration facilities and finally making its way through miles of pipelines into your home.

Hellenbrand Water Center Customer Service employee wearing jeans and a light blue shirt.The largest water issue in south-central Wisconsin is hard water. Which is where having a Hellenbrand water softener will help the water quality in your home.

The aquifer supplying our drinking water in south-central Wisconsin requires little treatment. Madison Water Utility disinfects it with chlorine to reduce the risk of microbial contamination. Small amounts of chlorine kill bacteria and viruses potentially present in groundwater. Chlorine also travels with water, ready to kill microbes that it might encounter. The goal is to maintain a chlorine residual above 0.1 milligrams per liter (mg/L) at all points in the distribution system. Typical concentrations range from 0.2 to 0.4 mg/L.

Hellenbrand Water Center Customer Service employee wearing jeans and a light blue shirt.Madison’s tap water is considered to be “very hard,” because of the minerals such as calcium and magnesium in the rock formations from which we draw water. This water contains 18–20 grains of hardness per gallon. There are no harmful health effects associated with these minerals (in fact, some believe they are beneficial), but measuring them does provide a guideline as to how water use may be affected. For example, hard water does result in more scale buildup and you need to use more soap and detergents.
