How do I remove iron from my well water?

Iron content in your well water supply is not a health concern, but it can make the appearance and taste of your water quite unappealing. In addition, it can stain your dishes and silverware. There are several options available for treatment of your well water, depending on the type of iron present:

  • Water filtration/aeration
  • Add a water softener
  • Chlorination of water supply

Before you take any steps, you should first determine the type and level of iron in your well water. Contact a professional water testing company near you to perform the necessary tests.
