Removing Iron from NH Water
How Much Is Too Much? Removing Iron from Your Water
The existence of iron in New Hampshire’s water is not as uncommon as you may think. Both iron and manganese are naturally occurring elements in the earth’s crust, and both are carried into groundwater through rock and soil. In some cases, residential or commercial plumbing systems made of iron can corrode, allowing excess iron to seep into a household water supply.
While iron and manganese are not hazardous to your health, and many water systems contain trace amounts of one or both of the elements, in excess they can cause problems beyond simply a foul odor, taste, or color. Reddish-brown stains that are difficult to remove may begin to appear on laundry, dishes, and fixtures.
Additionally, the buildup of these minerals in pipes and plumbing fixtures reduces water flow and pressure over time, which can increase water and energy bills dramatically.
A recent study also stated that hard water (which is frequently caused by excess iron in the water) can cause a multitude of skin issues and eczema especially in babies and young children whose skin is more sensitive to elements. You can read moreon the subject in this article by clicking here.
