Is There Too Much Iron In My Drinking Water?

  1. Are you finding orange and brown stains in your sink, toilet, tub, or other plumbing fixtures?
  2. Are you experiencing a metallic taste in your water caused by iron?
  3. Are you concerned the about possible damage to pipes and water heaters if the iron level in your water is not reduced?

The EPA maximum contaminant level for iron in drinking water is 0.3 ppm (parts per million). Anything above 0.3 ppm would be considered outside the desired value.

To improve water taste and provide plumbing protection there are many different solutions for your home and family. Today we are featuring the Pentek RFFE20-BB Cartridge. This cartridge helps to eliminate the orange and brown stains often found in sinks, toilets, tubs and other plumbing fixtures. It also reduces the possibility of damage to pipes and water heaters and reduces up to 3 ppm dissolved iron. It adds no harmful chemicals to the water, making it completely safe for drinking water applications.

The Pentek RFFE20-BB Cartridge is designed for use in the Pentek 20-inch Big Blue Filter Housing and should be installed on the main cold water line after the pressure tank or water meter. For best results, pre-sediment and post-carbon treatment is recommended.
