Who is the StainStopper System most suitable for?

The questions we ask are:

Is it a submersible pump in a bore (we don’t do above ground pumps in a well although it is possible)?

Is the water coming out clear and after resting for 24 hours turning brown? We want to know it’s a mineral iron problem rather than tannins

How much water do you pump. The system was designed for residential water users. We do have many semi-rural clients though who are very happy with the outcomes, talk to us if this is you.

What is it you are trying to fix? Is it the classic brown iron stains or do they just want to keep the pump and pipes clean?  It doesn’t take salt out or fix tannin discolouration.

StainStopper Rural

Suitable for use with an IBC or similar, we can supply or use your own and get a 1000L tanks on your StainStopper system. Approximately 180 hours of reticulation protection. Run it every other week to keep the pump and pipes clean or full time for stain protection. Contact us for further details.

Is it safe for my garden?

Safe for your garden, pets and stock as its non toxic!

Do I get a guarantee?

Absolutely! in Western Australia, we are fortunate to have very strong consumer protection laws in place. This means it’s not just us saying we will back the units, the law requires us to! The goods must be fit for purpose and we guarantee that they are.

Does the StainStopper do anything else?

The units not only provide complete stain protection, they also keep the pipes, valves and gear drives clean, a real bonus on larger commercial properties! Clogging of sprinklers and pipes is so bad for some folks they put a StainStopper on just to keep the pipes clean. Works brilliantly. 

Iron oxide already clogging the bore?
If you want to fit a StainStopper to a dirty bore, i.e. one with a lot of iron oxide clogging please talk to us about cleaning it first with BoreSaver Ultra C or Multikleen. A number of clients have had great success fitting a StainStopper and increasing the dose rate for a few months as well.
What if it’s a long way from the bore to the StainStopper?
After 10m, you get flow and pressure losses that make tuning the unit harder and the install more expensive. We know shorter is better but can manage longer if required, it just costs a little more to install.
Can I add fertiliser to the StainStopper?
We prefer you don’t as it will void the guarantee. Thats said, some folks do but we don’t recommend it.
Does the unit promote IRB or other problems?
No. The Aquatek Liquid Plus concentrate doesn’t promote IRB at all, unlike some other products offered to the market.
