My water tastes like iron, and sometimes it comes out of the tap the color of rust. What’s that about?
A metallic taste in water is generally caused by dissolved metals, such as iron, copper, or sometimes manganese.
- Iron in your water is not a health hazard, but neither is it very aesthetic.
- A tiny amount of dissolved iron can turn the water an alarming reddish-brown color, give tea and coffee a disagreeable flavor, and give your fresh veggies a strange dark color.
- Rusty-looking water may indicate that the pipes are corroding and can eventually leak.
- PDM Rust Doctors have filters that work well in our area.
