The presence of iron is probably the most common water problem faced by consumers and water treatment professionals in Central Florida. We see it nearly every day as we assist people with their water challenges. The maximum acceptable amounts of iron and manganese in drinkable water are 0.3 milligrams per litre (mg/l) and 0.05 mg/l, respectively. When the levels of Iron and manganese exceed these amounts we typically see discolored water and staining of fixtures and clothing. Iron, as many of you may know, causes stains that are unsightly and a brown, orange color. Manganese, on the other hand leaves black particles on fixtures and pipes. These stays are not just unpleasant, they are costly. They can stain pool decks, pool finishes, the sides of your house and fences and throughout the home you may find rust damage on all fixtures, tubs and sinks, appliances and clothes. It’s a water challenge that needs to be taken seriously.
Removing iron and manganese from water can sometimes not be simple as other treatment methods; treatment is dependent on some or all of the following things:
• How much and the specific kind of iron: Ferrous Iron, Ferric Iron and bacterial iron are all different types of iron and need a different method of removal
• Poeple very often don’t realize that the ph of the water will affect how successful we are in removing your item efficiently. When water has a low pH, other treatment methods may be needed in the process.
