What is a Chlorinator?

Chlorinators are mechanisms to inject chlorine into your well's water, but they do more than just sterilize the water. One of the most important uses of a well chlorinator reservoir is for the removal of iron and iron bacteria from your well water.

Water with high amounts of iron is one of the most common water-quality issues faced by well owners, and a chlorinator is commonly used to remove the iron.

As the vehicle of chlorine injection to the water, the chlorinator itself can be implemented in several different ways. Most typically chlorine is added to a reservoir and then filtered out. This reservoir can be external to the primary well reservoir for more concentrated chlorination (for things like iron removal). Alternatively the chlorinator can add chlorine to the primary reservoir directly.
