After hardness and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell) in well water, iron is the most common water problem dealt with by homeowners with well water. An iron problem is characterized by the red-brown staining of bathroom fixtures and laundry.  

Iron is typically present in well water in three common forms. While there are other forms of iron in well water, they are typically much less common than the three listed below.


  1. Bacterial Iron in Well Water Iron bacteria are usually identified by slime in places such as toilet reservoirs or by the presence of a slimy mass fouling softeners or filters.
  2. Ferric Iron in Well Water Also known as red water iron, ferric iron in well water is essentially clear water iron that has been exposed to oxygen – usually from the air, thereby oxidizing.  Carbon dioxide leaves the water and the oxygen combines with the iron to form ferric ions (Fe+++).  This gives the water a red rust coloring.
  3. Ferrous Iron in Well Water Often called Clear-water iron because it is clear when poured, this substance is found in water that contains no oxygen. Typically, it comes from deeper wells and groundwater sources. Carbon dioxide acts on iron in the ground to form soluble ferrous bicarbonate. In water this forms ferrous ions (Fe++).


Unfortunately, iron is also difficult to treat to a satisfactory level. This difficulty is due to the fact that iron can be found in well water in several forms, each of which may require a different water treatment for removal or control.  Other factors, like the pH level of the well water, will also affect how successful a well water treatment approach will be.  However, once the well water conditions are known, choosing the best iron removal method or treatment is straightforward.

Neither iron nor manganese in water presents a health hazard. However, their presence in water may cause taste, staining and accumulation problems.Because iron and manganese are chemically similar, they cause similar problems. Iron will cause reddish-brown staining of laundry, porcelain, dishes, utensils and even glassware. Manganese acts in a similar way but causes a brownish-black stain. Soaps and detergents do not remove these stains, and the use of chlorine bleach and alkaline builders (such as sodium carbonate) can actually intensify the stains.
Iron and manganese deposits will build up in pipelines, pressure tanks, water heaters, appliances, water softeners and water filters. This reduces the available quantity and pressure of the water supply. Iron and manganese accumulations become an economic problem when water supply or water softening/treatment  equipment must be replaced. Also, pumping water through constricted pipes or heating water with heating rods coated with iron or manganese minerals increase energy costs.
