My water leaves an orange/brown stain in my fixtures. What type of testing should I have?

Iron. Iron can be coming into the water system from the soil around the well or from corrosion of galvanized pipe in the water system. Iron levels can fluctuate in water depending on things such as amount of water use. It is not always easy to determine where the source of the iron staining. This test can be performed individually or with the Water Treatment Package, the Pipe Degradation Package or the General Naturally-occurring Minerals and Toxic Metals Package under Packages on this web page. It is also included in the Irrigation Water Package.
