Common Water Problems
Hard Water (spotting on dishes and glassware; scale on inside of water heater, pipes, and water-using appliances; soap curd and bathtub ring; clothes look gray and dingy) is caused by calcium and magnesium in the water, measuring 3.5 gpg or more. This can be solved with a Water Softener (Max. Hardness 100 gpg, Max. Clear Water Iron 1.5 ppm).
Clear Water Iron (Ferrous) (yellow, brown or rusty stains on plumbing fixtures, water-using appliances and fabrics; metallic taste in foods and beverages; water is clear when drawn from faucet but oxidizes when exposed to air, then changes color ranging from yellow to brown) is caused by iron in the water, measuring 0.3 ppm or more. This can be solved with a Water Softener (0.3-1.5ppm), Iron Guard Softener (1.5-7.5 ppm), and Chemical Free Iron Filter (1.5-30 ppm). *Water must have a minimum pressure of 20 psi, pumping rate of 5 gpm and a pH of 6.5 or higher for proper operation. Most water supplies contain calcium and magnesium which are not removed by an iron filter. We recommend following an iron filter with a water softener.
Red Water Iron (Ferric) (same symptoms as Clear Water Iron, but iron has already oxidized and has a yellow to rust color when drawn from the faucet) is caused by iron in the water, measure 0.3 ppm or more. This can be solved with a Chemical Free Iron Filter (0.3-30 ppm) and Iron & Sulfur Filter (0.3-10 ppm). *Water must have a minimum pressure of 20 psi, pumping rate of 5 gpm and a pH of 6.5 or higher for proper operation. Most water supplies contain calcium and magnesium which are not removed by an iron filter. We recommend following an iron filter with a water softener.
Bacterial Iron (same symptoms as Clear & Red Water Iron but can have clumps or balls that may foul plumbing lines and other water-using appliances; particularly noticeable as a yellow to reddish slime in toilet flush tanks) is caused by Iron Bacteria, which are a group of bacteria which thrive in iron bearing water, utilizing iron as an energy source – this bacteria is not a health hazard. This can be solved with a Chemical Free Iron Filter. *Water must have a minimum pressure of 20 psi, pumping rate of 5 gpm and a pH of 6.5 or higher for proper operation. Most water supplies contain calcium and magnesium which are not removed by an iron filter. We recommend following an iron filter with a water softener.
Manganese (blackish stain on fixtures and laundry; manganese content above 0.05 ppm causes stains) is caused by interaction of carbon dioxide or organic matter with manganese-bearing soils, and usually found in combination with iron. This can be solved with a Chemical Free M Iron Filter (0.05-10 ppm) and Neutralizing Filter (1.0-2.0 ppm) followed by an Iron & Sulfur Filter. *Oxidation of manganese is more pH dependant than iron. Therefore, a pH of 8.2 or higher must be maintained. If the manganese level is >2.0 ppm or bacterial iron is present, consult our Customer Service Department
Acid Water (blue/green or rusty stains and corrosion of plumbing fixtures and other water using appliances; pitting of porcelain and enamel fixtures and dishes; pin holes in copper plumbing lines) is generally associated with water with a pH value of less than the neutral 7.0. This can be solved with a Neutralizing Filter (pH 6.0-6.9 and Chemical Feed Pump feeding soda ash (pH 4.0-6.9). Please consult our Customer Service Department.
Aggressive/Corrosive Water (same symptoms as Acid Water but pH is 7.0 or higher) is caused by alkalinity and carbon dioxide or higher dissolved oxygen in water. Electrolysis – two dissimilar metals in the plumbing line. Please consult our Customer Service Department to determine a solution.
Hydrogen Sulfide (rotten egg taste and/or odour; turns copper plumbing lines black and is very corrosive) is a dissolved gas found in some water supplies. This can be solved with a Chemical Free Iron Filter or Iron & Sulfur Filter (0.1-3.0 ppm), Chemical Feed Pump feeding chlorine (3.0-15 ppm), followed by a Multimedia Filter. *This system also requires a retention tank to allow adequate contact time (minimum 20 minutes). An optional activated carbon filter for the whole house water supply or a taste & odour cartridge filter for individual faucets may be installed to remove objectionable taste or odour.
Marshy, Metallic, or Chlorine Taste/Odours (objectionable tastes and/or odours other than hydrogen sulfide) are caused by dissolved minerals or gasses, organic contamination or chlorination. This can be solved with an Activated Carbon Filter for whole house water supply or Taste & Odour Cartridge Filter for individual faucets.
Turbidity (Sand/Sediment) (foreign particles, dirty or cloudy water) is caused by tiny suspended particles that are the result of water main scale or silt. Private wells often contain sand or clay. This can be solved with a Multimedia Filter for whole house water supply or a Sediment Cartridge Filter for individual faucets.
Tannins (yellow or brown tint or cast in water supply; tannins measuring 0.5 ppm or higher may cause staining and/or interference with various water treatment processes) is caused by decaying vegetative matter. This can be solved with an Organic Colour Removal Filter. Please consult our Customer Service Department for more details.
Benefits of Clean Water
At Nauss, we strongly believe that the water you drink as a part of a healthy lifestyle should be of the highest quality because it really does make a difference what water you drink. Tap water, spring water, even regular bottled water can contain hundreds of toxic substances; things like bacteria, pesticides and other contaminants. It is widely known that water is an important part of our diet. The importance of the quality of that water is just being recognized. It is our mission to bring clean, clear, drinking water to the population of Sudbury.
Nauss’ pure bottled water tastes good and refreshing because the bacteria, chemicals and odors that give water a bad taste have been removed. With all the health benefits that water provides, it makes sense to drink only the highest-quality water you can get. But we go farther than taste.
We are so convinced the quality of water matters that we have set the highest standards in the industry for pure bottled water. Our water quality assurance program makes sure every bottle of water you purchase from us comes from a certified water bottler and has passed the most stringent quality control tests. We use an environmentally-friendly process called reverse osmosis to remove more than 98% of all contaminants. Our bottle sterilization process makes sure Nauss premium waters stay fresh and pure.
