Iron and Manganese Control and Nuisance Reduction

Iron and Manganese are one of the most common water quality problems related to the hardness of the water. When the total hardness of a water is measured, the laboratory is testing for the presence of divalent and multivalent cations, like Aluminum, Arsenic, calcium, Copper, Iron, Lead, magnesium, Manganese, and other metals, but the cations that create the most common water quality problems are calcium, Iron, magnesium, and Manganese. Calcium and magnesium are typically associated with water scale formation which can create a nuisance and cause a premature failure of your water-related appliances and biofouling. Iron and Manganese can also create visual and other aesthetic nuisances like yellow, brown, black, red, or even pink water. At high levels Iron and Manganese  may be associated with health-related problems. The common water treatment systems used to control Iron and Manganese include chemical oxidation, Water Softening, and Ion Exchange filters using activated media or a sequestering process ("salt-free" systems).

Follow the Path to Clean Water

We recommend that, prior to installing a CounterTop POU (Point-of-Use) Unit, you Get Informed by gathering as much information as possible and Get Tested by conducting multiple levels of testing depending on your needs: Level 1 Observational Testing using our Self Test Web App, Level 2 Do-It-Yourself Testing, Level 3 Informational Lab Testing and, if needed, Level 4 Certified Testing conducted by a water professional.

If you have any questions please Contact the KnowYourH2O team.
