Iron & Manganese Water Filters

Iron and manganese water filters help to reduce levels of iron and manganese in your water. Water containing high levels of iron and manganese can be unpleasant, both in taste and appearance, and often result in the staining of bathtubs, sinks and clothes.

Why Should Iron be Filtered from Water?

Iron is known to leach into water supplies throughout the United States from rock and soil formations. It has been said, probably an exaggeration, that there is hardly a square foot of soil that does not have some iron content.

Whether that’s an exaggeration or not, iron does make up at least 5% of the earth’s crust. Concentrations of iron in water as low as 0.3 ppm (parts per million) can cause a yellow to reddish discoloration in the water. Depending on the pH level, this can be the start of the staining and scale process in water supplies, and also lead to taste and odor problems in your water.

Why Should Manganese be Filtered from Water?

Manganese is a mineral that naturally occurs in rocks and soil and may also be present as a result of underground pollution sources. Rarer than iron, it’s usually not found alone in a water supply, but is frequently found in water that contains iron.

When manganese is present in water, it can cause many of the same issues that iron does. In low concentrations, it can produce stains on everything it comes into contact with. Manganese deposits collect in pipelines, which can cause tap water to contain black sediment and give it a cloudy appearance due to precipitated manganese. Additionally, fabrics washed in water containing manganese may end up with dark brown or black stains caused by the oxidation of the manganese.
