Is the water at your house the culprit behind iron stains and hard water issues?

Whether the water in your home comes from the city or from a well, you might be experiencing iron stains or hard water. Both of these problems can cause unnecessary frustration and unpleasantness in your home. Let’s explore each of these water problems and the solutions that are available.

Iron Stains

Iron stains are nasty streaks, spots, or areas that have a reddish-brown look to them. Generally speaking, they are difficult to remove. As a result, many people feel that no matter what they do to their water, iron stains plague their:

  • Toilets
  • Fixtures
  • Clothes
  • Sidewalks
  • Walls
  • Driveways

What’s in your water will cause these stains. Typically, dissolved iron in your water, exposed to oxygen, will form iron oxide and cause your household places and pieces to have that unwelcome reddish-brown color.

As water experts, we have seen, heard, and fixed numerous water problems. A huge frustration we have also seen over and over has been centered around hard city water that can cause:

  • failure of water heater elements and short heater life
  • mineral build-up saw around water fixtures
  • dry itchy skin
  • spots on dishes, flatware, and glasses
  • soap scum on bathtubs, curtains, or doors
  • dull scratchy clothing

To name a few things, the concentration of multivalent cations in water is what can be used to determine the hardness of the water. Calcium and magnesium are two of the most common cations that are found in hard water.
