Iron Removal

Iron makes up about 5 percent of the earth’s crust, and is commonly found in drinking water in the United States. In small amounts, iron is actually good for you. However, when there is a high concentration of iron in your Oregon Water Softening Systemswater, it can cause a number of problems. First, it can give your water a foul metallic taste. Also, if you mix iron with beverages such as coffee or tea, it creates a terrible-tasting black substance. Additionally, if you cook vegetables in water with a high concentration of iron, the veggies will turn dark. Iron appears in water in two forms; ferrous iron, which dissolves in water, and ferric iron, which doesn’t dissolve in water.

Our team of highly trained technicians has a ton of experience eliminating both forms of iron from drinking water. We install water softening systems that can effectively filter out ferrous iron, and will also eliminate hard water. Our whole house water filters can filter out ferric iron and purify your drinking water.
