Iron-containing water is mainly found in the case of individual water supply, e.g. from one’s own well or where rust-containing water is fed into the domestic network. This is predominantly the case if the local water supply lines are already several years old and service jobs such as flushing or repairing of pipes burst are carried out. As a consequence, rust and pollutants are frequently dissolved, they get into the house and deposit inside the pipes. Brown water is running from the tap.
If the water contains up to approx. 3 mg iron per litre, WELLAN 2000 transforms the iron so that there will be no discolouring of the water. A practical test is recommended.
