IRON STAINING IN CT WELL WATER
Connecticut well water has some of the country’s worst iron problems. Iron and other minerals such as manganese and calcium can easily wind up in your well water. Rain water will seep into rock and soil that contains iron, and groundwater containing iron can feed the aquifers that go into your well.
FACTS ABOUT IRON IN YOUR WATER:
The good news about iron in your water is it’s not harmful to drink. The bad news about iron in your water is it stains everything. Iron attaches itself to your surfaces and leaves reddish-brown or orange stain rings behind. This is the result of oxidation, and it turns darker the more oxygen it’s exposed to. It can even lead to rust stains in clothing if the garments are washed in a machine with water that contains iron. Your water may also smell metallic due to iron.
And it doesn’t go away, at least not without some serious cleaning and strong product. However, cleaning only removes the iron staining and not the iron itself. It usually coexists with manganese, which stains your dishwasher black.
