How to identify an Iron Problem in my water supply?
If you suspect that you have a problem with iron or manganese in your water supply, your first step is to have the water tested. Test results will let you know the extent of your iron problem, the types of contaminant present, and the quantities in which those contaminants are present such as pH, alkalinity, and hardness. Once you have this information, you can begin to work on the best way to treat your problem. Ideally, iron levels should be below 0.3 ppm (or mg/l). You can contact us or refer to the water testing section on our home page for available water testing kits.
