Excess Iron: Cause, Effect And Solution

From Earth’s Crust to Your Faucet

Iron is one of the earth’s most plentiful elements, making up at least 5% of the Earth’s surface. As rainwater makes its way through the ground and into our waterways, it dissolves and collects minerals like iron along the way. Excess iron is found most often in wells, but can also enter your home through poorly filtered municipal water systems or aging pipes and plumbing.

Rainwater makes its way through the earth, dissolving and collecting iron particles along the way.

Groundwater is deposited into a municipal well house or ground well.

Water is then pumped into your home and if not filtered properly could often contain excess amounts of iron.
