Whole House Filtration Systems Remove Manganese from Well Water
Whole house filtration systems enable families who rely on well water to enjoy healthier, fresher-smelling water to bathe, prepare meals, and perform several other household tasks. This is because modern problem-solving filtration systems catch a variety of contaminants that originate in ground water and can make their way into dishwashers, laundry machines, sinks, and showers.
One such water contaminant removed by whole house filters is manganese, a naturally occurring mineral found in rocks, soil, and in certain foods like seafood, grains, nuts, and kale. Manganese is even found naturally in the body. Its presence in food is beneficial to several aspects of human health, but when dissolved in well water, this mineral often creates an unpleasant metallic taste and distinct odor most would like to avoid. It may also give a murky orange tint to water, in addition to leaving stubborn stains on pipes and appliances.
As with most contaminants, levels of dissolved manganese in water that exceed the Environmental Protection Agency’s Maximum Contaminant Levels, or MCLs, are considered detrimental to human health. However, even trace amounts of manganese considered safe for consumption can easily produce an unfavorable scent, taste, or color in well water. Moreover, private well water systems are generally not regulated as strictly as public water systems, so installing a whole house filter is the best way to eliminate your well water worries and enjoy peace of mind regarding the health of your family’s water supply.
