Ocher Filter

Red-brown water may be due to small iron particles or ocher

Okker i vand

If your water has a reddish-brown color, it may be because your water contains small iron particles or anthracite in your water, this can be removed with an occasional filter. Ocher can occur as coatings on the inside of water pipes, and can be loosened. This results in the water that has a maroon or yellow color.

Water with ocher is not dangerous to drink, it may have a ugly taste and does not look so inviting. Oven in the water can also cause discoloration of clothes, klinker and appliances.

The small ocher and iron particles are very small and require a very fine filter to get filtered away. Our recommendation to remove these small particles is therefore a 0.5 µm filter, this is to achieve as high an efficiency as possible. Our Vana Pleat2 is a pleated filter that is especially well-suited to the occasions in the water.

When filtering as fine a filter as 0.5µm, we recommend installing a 5µm filter before this, to extend the 0.5µm filter life. By using this combination of filters, you get a replacement rate of approx. 6 months, however, this time may be shorter, at a very high load.

Filter-online offers complete package solutions against okks in your drinking water. Disser Often kits, as we call them, consist of 2 filter housings in hard plastic, a 5 µm prefilter, and a 0.5 µm filter. These kits are available in 3 sizes, depending on how much your water consumption is.

If you are unsure how much your water consumption is, then you can use our table (See below) as a good starting point.
