Iron problems? Get clearer, cleaner drinking water!

Next to water hardness, iron is the most common problem people have with their well water. If your water looks reddish brown instead of clear and clean, iron is the likely culprit. It causes stains in sinks and toilets, and doesn't look appetizing to drink. Not only is it a nuisance, it can actually harm your household appliances! Washing machines, dish washers and icemakers won't last as long if they have iron buildup inside.

High iron levels over time can lead to iron bacteria - a real mess for your well and your pipes. Luckily, there are options for treating high levels of iron in your well water. Shock chlorination and water conditioning equipment are two services offered by Gainesville Pump that are sure to leave you with clearer, cleaner drinking water for you and your family.
