Iron Bacteria is a problem that can cause both odors and taste to your water as well as cause possible corrosion to your pipes, and clog screens thus reducing water flow. A way to determine if you might have iron bacteria would be look at your toilet tank to see if there is a brownish slime growing on the sides of the tank. If you have a reddish, brownish or yellowish color to your water - this too may be an indication of iron bacteria. If your water smells musty or similar to sewage, this too may indicate Iron Bacteria. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you may want to perform an Iron Bacteria Water Test.
If you are performing testing to meet a regulatory requirement or if your results may be used for litigation purposes, please contact us for more information about testing packages designed for those purposes.
