Aeration (AER)

Aeration is a process in which air or oxygen is injected, bubbled, sprayed, or cascaded into water in an attempt to increase the oxygen content of the water or to aid in the removal of other Gases or Volatile Organic Compounds. This process can be used to treat taste and odor issues like Hydrogen Sulfide and to help remove minerals such as Iron and Manganese (by oxidation, precipitation, and filtration) from water. In addition, the aeration process can be used to raise the pH of the water by helping to outgas gases such as Carbon Dioxide, Radon, and Methane from the water.

Dissolved Gases and related compounds can be addressed a number of ways, but it depends on the condition of the water, contaminants, type of gas, and other aesthetic or health related concerns. Typically, aeration systems should be custom-sized and designed specifically for a particular gas. Any potential flammable gases or health-related conditions must be addressed and the gas must be vented outside the home.


Follow The Path to Clean Water

We recommend that, prior to installing an AerationTreatment System, you Get Informed by gathering as much information as possible and Get Tested by conducting multiple levels of testing depending on your needs: Level 1 Observation al Testing using our Self Test Web App, Level 2 Do-It-Yourself Testing, Level 3 Informational Lab Testing and, if needed, Level 4 Certified Testing conducted by a water professional.

If you have any questions please Contact the KnowYourH2O team.

Get Tested

Prior to implementing a treatment solution, we recommend the following tests:

Iron, Manganese, and Volatile Organics Problem (Well Water or Private System)
National Testing Labs | Well Water Check Deluxe
with National Testing Labs | Problem Check (Iron and IRB)

Iron, Manganese, and Volatile Organics Problem (City Water)
National Testing Labs | City Water Check Deluxe
with National Testing Labs | Problem Check (Iron and IRB)

Hydrogen Sulfide Problem (Well Water or Private System)
National Testing Labs | Well Water Check Deluxe
with National Testing Labs | Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria

Hydrogen Sulfide Problem (City Water)
National Testing Labs | City Water Check Standard
