Stains: How We Can Help

We always start with a free water analysis. This will tell us the exact extend of the problem. Our equipment is fully adjustable to your needs.

Iron leaves rust-colored stains on your fixtures. It also can leave rust stains on your washed clothes. At times, iron will make the water in your toilet bowl a nice pink color. Iron in water is not absorbable by the body, and has no beneficial effect. To the contrary, iron can produce bacteria. Once in your water heater or your pipes, it’s there to stay. It has a distinctive smell, and can lead to hot water heaters early death.


When manganese is present in water, it is every bit as annoying as iron, perhaps even more so. In low concentrations it produces extremely objectionable stains on everything with which it comes in contact. Deposits collect in pipelines, and tap water may contain black sediment or become cloudy. Fabric washed in manganese-bearing water gets dark brown or black stains. If you suspect you have manganese, check your toilet water tank. Manganese leaves a blackish ooze, that feels slimy to the touch. It gives you some idea of what you’re drinking.


Clay doesn't dissolve in water. Usually in fine particles, it gets into everything. Nothing is immune to clogging. It leaves traces in your tub, and where ever else it goes. Unchecked clay can render the most expensive water treatment system useless.
