Iron is mainly present in water in two forms: A soluble ferrous iron or an insoluble ferric iron. Water containing ferrous iron is clear and colorless because the iron is completely dissolved. Like any dissolved material it is not visible in the water. Dissolved materials can not filtered. They must be removed with the help of chemical changes.
Ferric is referred to as red-water iron, because it gives the water a reddish/orange colour. This sediment is the oxidized form of iron that will not dissolve in water. This form of iron can be filtered
Ferrous iron can be removed by a most common way, that is to use a water softener. This method can be used on almost any level of iron. Ferric iron can be removed by any of the common medias used in back washing filters. Since the iron is already oxidized, the water only needs to be filtered.
High iron makes drinking water, coffee, and teas taste metallic. Food cooked in water with iron may become discolored and have an odd flavor, too. Iron can leave unsightly stains on fabrics and fixtures such as sinks and toilets. When it comes to our bodies iron is an important nutrient, but most people get 95 percent of the iron they need from food. Typical tap water only provides 5% of the recommended daily value. So, if iron is causing more issues than benefits, why not remove it from your home’s water?
