Manganese Removal from NH Well Water

Filtration to rid you of the stains, the foul odors and the bad taste!

The existence of manganese in New Hampshire’s private well water is a real problem, and Capital Well’s experts have the solution. Naturally occurring manganese, much like its close relative, iron, is common in the deep wells of New England, where oxygen is low, and where water maintains contact with bedrock for a long period of time.

Iron and manganese often occur together, and move into groundwater through rocks and soil and through pollution rich in organic matter – like runoff from landfills, compost, brush or silage piles, and chemicals, such as gasoline. Though non-hazardous, if you eat a diet high in manganese, use over-the-counter supplements, or have an infant is using a formula high in manganese, ingestion from high manganese levels in your drinking water could lead to health problems, including, over time, nerve damage.

Manganese appears clear in the well but turns color and solidifies when exposed to air, leaving behind potentially harmful bacteria. Left untreated, you will experience reddish/brownish stains on plumbing, fixtures and basins, visible particulates, and foul metallic and bacterial tastes that will ruin food – and your morning coffee.

Removing Manganese | How Can Capital Well Help?

It is always a good idea to have your water tested to determine the problem’s exact type and concentration and lead you to the best water treatment options. Levels of natural leaching can vary widely, depending upon the types of rock and minerals present at the water table. Typically, manganese concentrations from natural processes are low, but can range up to 1.5 mg/l or higher.

Manganese can be effectively removed from water using a number of treatment processes. Manganese is commonly removed from all water entering the home using Point-of-Entry (POE) treatment devices.

As certified installer’s of Evolve™ state-of-the-art water treatment systems, our team helps deliver to our NH residential and commercial customers the cleanest, purest water possible. Evolve's™ EV conditioners come equipped with patented disinfection systems that remove manganese without damaging your plumbing and fixtures. Conventional water softeners can be effective for removing small amounts of manganese. Aeration, reverse osmosis and distillation and shock chlorination are other well-accepted methods of manganese mitigation.

  • George Craggy

    Jonathan, I wanted to drop a couple of lines to tell you how satisfied and happy that I chose Capital Well Co. for my water needs. From your lead man Steve to your drill people, your plumbing guy and your guy on the back hoe. Everyone that cast a shadow on my door threshold were polite, professional and willing to take the time to explain and answer my questions; which were many . Jon, it was my pleasure to meet you today and pleased that you came by for a follow up visit and explain how the heater works. SO...if I get a chance to tell everyone that needs a new well, I definitely will. It is apparent there is no "I" in your team . Thank you everyone.
  • Richard Meaney

    Mr. Swain, Thank you so much for the service Capital Well provided at my home today. I left a message with you at the behest of Ed Monty. I received a prompt phone call from Greg to arrange for a service call and to discuss what might need to be done. Promptly at (actually a few minutes before) the scheduled time, Bobby showed up to perform the service. Bobby was excellent at explaining the service, why some things were needed and how the well and pump worked, and answered all of my questions to my satisfaction. All in all, this was a very positive experience for us. Thanks to you and the people at Capital Well for prompt, courteous, and efficient service.
