What you should know about Iron & Staining
Iron or manganese in water cause black or rusty stains throughout the home, and can lead to damaging build-up in pipes and appliances.
Removing iron stains can be a daily chore for those with iron in their well water. Ferrous (clearwater) iron is most common, appearing clear out of the faucet, but turning rusty and leaving iron stains over time after exposure to oxygen. Less common is ferric (redwater) iron, which is a rusty color directly from the faucet, and will also leave iron stains in sinks, tubs, and laundry. In addition to leaving difficult-to-clean iron stains, iron deposits can damage pipes and appliances, resulting in decreased efficiency and costly repairs. Manganese is often found in water with a high iron content, and will appear as a gray or black staining.
