Is your water crystal clear? Or is it yellow or brown in colour out of the tap or in the toilet bowl?
You may have tannins in your water.
Tannins are a natural organic material found in water wells. It is created when water passes through peaty soil, decaying vegetation or an underground coal seam. Coal seams in Alberta water wells are a common cause of tannins and in many cases, the water will be brownish in color, taste bitter, stain laundry, sinks, toilets, and tubs and corrode chrome on plumbing fixtures. An initial water test would need to be done to determine what treatment process would be required as there are many different types of tannins.
A Nano or Ultra Filtration System with the proper pre-treatment is the most effective way to remove tannins from well water. In some cases a tannin removal system can be installed that works similar to a water softener, but it depends on the type of tannin that it is. Tannin removal systems can be expensive but in most cases are very effective. Contact Pro-Water Conditioning for a free estimate.
