Boresaver StainStopper System

Stain Stopper Systems

When your bore water comes out clean and clear but leaves dirty brown stains on your walls, plants and paths, the StainStopper System is ideal for you. Perfect for iron and calcium but not for tannins. If you have heavy iron oxide buildup in your pipes and pump, it will take a little while to clean out, 2 weeks to 2 months depending on severity.

Which system is right for you will depend on:

  1. Submersible pump

  2. Above ground pump in a well

  3. Pressure tank/switch on the pump

  4. Access to the bore

  5. Power availability

  6. Condition of the main water pipe

StainStopper Vacuum System

The traditional vacuum driven systems. They don’t require power but do require access to the bore, clean main line and must be for a submersible pump in a casing without a pressure vessel or switch.

The systems require two 20 mm blueline pipes to be connected between the head of the bore and the system.

StainStopper Vacuum System has three models to choose from. Specials pricing changing very soon!

Boresaver StainStopper F&Q

Is it safe for my garden?

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

Do I have tannins?

Take  a sample of water from a sprinkler, does it come out clear then turn brown over the next 24 hours? This is iron. Tannin would mean the water is coloured right from the start.

What if I have a buildup of iron oxide in my bore and reticulation system before I install a StainStopper?

The iron clogging has to go somewhere. We usually look to add extra Aquatek to the tank to get rid of the iron oxide quicker but it does take time. Clients report anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months to get the pipes clean. If you have sensitive surfaces you will want to wait for the pipes to clear before using the IronKleen stain remover.

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.

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.
