High Iron Water
Does your water have a rusty taste and feel?
Stop rust stains and orange water with Culligan.
Iron enters the water supply from a variety sources - the soil around private wells, corrosion in the pipes themselves and organically occurring reactions with elements in the water. These iron problems exist in many different forms, and knowing what kind of problem you have is essential to properly treating it. If your water comes out of the faucet clear, but turns red or brown after standing, you have "ferrous" iron, also known as "clear-water" iron. If your water is red or yellow when first drawn, you have "ferric" iron, also known as "red- water" iron. Organic iron is usually yellow or brown, but may be colorless.
Common high iron problems include –
- Rusty, red-brown stains on your fixtures, sinks and tubs
- Rusty stains or residue on laundry
- Yellow, brown, red or orange-colored water
- Clogs in wells, pumps and sprinklers
- Metallic tasting water
- Certain foods prepared in water turning black -potatoes and teas are commonly affected

What Clients Say
Culligan has been my softener go-to people since I moved back to Geneva in 1999. The man who delivers the salt always is polite and makes the necessary trips to the basement, carrying heavy bags of salt. I surely can't do that any more. I appreciate how easy Culligan has been to work with over the years. They've been able to take my personal schedule into account and deliver the salt as needed.
