Iron is introduced into water as it passes through iron-bearing rocks. Because iron accounts for 5% of all the earth’s crust, it can be found in just about all of our water supplies. The EPA Secondary Drinking Water limit for iron is only 0.3 parts per million (ppm) but we have wells in our area in excess of 20ppm. Water above 0.3 ppm causes staining on fixtures and laundry, makes water smell and taste bad, and can even clog pipes leading to pressure loss. At Advanced Water Resources, we have spent a lot of time learning which treatment methods work the best for the various iron problems in our area. We are confident that we solve the most difficult iron problems. If you have iron in your water and don’t feel like being an experiment, call us today at 800-732-6202. You’ll be glad you did!
