Re: Camp Well... Runs rusty?
Iron is picked up in the water as it filters through the ground into the water table. You can put a oxidizing system in to remedy the problem, but they can be costly. I have a Culligan water conditioning system up at our camp and our water is clear, although there is some iron when we first start it up. I usually run the outside spigot for about 10-15 mins before I open the water into camp to get all the visible iron off. If your content is really high it will stain toilets, shower, sink, etc.. and can build up in pipes, or cause clogs in dishwashers, showerheads, etc.
