Tannin is a natural forming underground organic substance that is found in water wells. It is derived from dissolved and decayed organic matter in the water. Coal seams in Alberta water wells are a common cause of tannin. Water with tannin will be brownish in colour, tastes bitter, stains laundry and sinks, toilets, tubs, as well as can be corrosive on chrome in your plumbing fixtures. In our experience, the most effective way to remove tannin from your water is to use Nano or Ultra Filtration Systems. A water test would need to be done to determine what pre-treatment is necessary.
