Well Water Problems
Well water problems can vary from region to region or from one neighbor’s well to the next. This why it is imperative a water analysis be completed on your home water supply prior to choosing a water softener or water treatment system.
The most common well water problems are:
- Dirt, sand and sediment brought up from the bottom of the well.
- Hard Water- is water that contains calcium and magnesium carbonate above 1 gpg
- Iron Water- water that contains 1ppm of ferrous, or clear water iron. Ferric and Iron Bacteria are also common well water problems.
Other well water problems include:
- Low pH -causing acidic water
- Hydrogen Sulfide- resulting in a rotten egg odor.
- Brown or black staining usually a sign of manganese. This is one of the more difficult well water problems with which a home owner must contend.
