This course will show that Iron and Manganese are naturally occurring elements commonly found in groundwater and wells. While not considered a health hazard, their presence often results in staining of laundry and plumbing components, as well as offensive tastes and appearances. Treatment methods for these elements depend on the form in which they occur in the untreated and treated water. Therefore, accurate water testing is important before considering your options and selecting treatment equipment.
