If you are in Orlando or the central Florida area and are on well water you may have a problem with iron in your water. If your clothes are orange and there is orange stains on your shower walls you may have high iron. If you have high iron you can’t just get rid of it with a filter, it takes a system to remove the iron, depending on the iron level, you may need a complex system.
Most well systems with high iron require a chlorinator pump, which injects liquid chlorine into the water supply that should then go into a storage tank. This will help dissolve some of the iron. From there the chlorine must be removed from the water supply so it is able to be used for house hold use. This is done by having the water from the storage tank go into a carbon filter, which removes the chlorine. From there it should then go through a salt based water softener system to then remove the hard water deposits.
This is the proper process that your Orlando plumber should use to treat water from a well with high iron. The customer must then check salt levels and chlorine levels in the system so that the system works well for years to come.
