Iron in Your Water Supply | WQP - Water Quality Products

Iron is considered to be one of the most unstable minerals in our ground water supply. As water percolates through the ground strata it dissolves the iron from the iron ore deposits as ferrous bicarbonate [Fe (HCO3)2 ], sometimes referred to as "clear water iron." When iron is dissolved in water you cannot see it.
