Hydrogen Peroxide Well Water System

Properties of Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide holds an advantage over chlorine as a well water disinfectant due to its chemical makeup. It disinfects through oxidation, splitting into oxygen and water. In the case of well water treatment, there is often bacteria that cannot be eliminated by chlorine. It’s as effective as chlorine is as a disinfecting agent, and it's most effective in reducing the odors from sulfur, iron bacteria, iron and manganese.
