We have engaged a professional engineer to analyze our system and offer recommendations for future improvements. He has in his possession the last six months repair activity and a list of questions that have been presented to the Board. We will experience water system problems intermittently, Sharp states our levels are not harmful to your health.
To assist owners in recovering from excessive iron in the water system we have established the follow recommended process.
You will be notified by email and the front board if we are aware or anticipating a problem.
The iron will accumulate in your hot water heater. Turn off the circuit breaker to the hot water heater and let it empty. When water becomes cool turn off and allow to refill. Turn power back to tank.Turn on water and let run for five minutes. This should empty your internal pipes. The Maintenance dept will be emptying the outside lines at the same time.
The Board apologies for any in hard ship this may cause. We are on a well system as is everyone else in lower Delaware. The iron enters our system at 11 parts million and exits the system at a range of .10 to .17. Well below the industry standard of .30.When iron is in system it has to drain out.
