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.

What Clients Say
Other than the fact that I had difficulty getting my cellar ready for the water softener (needed an electric line and a water line), this has been a very good experience for me. Diane Geile explained things to me very well when I first inquired about the possibility of having a softener installed. She and a technician came and checked to find out what was needed. Diane even took a picture on her phone to show me a leak they had found in a water line. The technician installed it later and answered all my questions. They were always prompt when a time was set for them to come, very friendly, and knowledgeable. I couldn't have asked for more.
