There are two basic types of iron. One we help with more than the
other. The type we help with the most is Ferric Iron.
This iron "piggy backs" calcium and gives you the streaks
in the toilet bowl- above the water line and/or where
the water drips in the tub you get an orange or brown stain.
MCS might not totally eliminate this type of iron (depends on
the severity), but we make it easier to clean and it does not
come back as fast.
The other type of iron (called Ferrous Iron) is a real problem.
It appears clear when drawn, but when the water comes into contact with air, iron oxides and will be visible as red discolored water-
the iron settles out as a film under the water line in the
toilet bowl. You might also get splotches of orange on your
light colored laundry - not just yellowing all over, but vivid
stains. MCS might help a little bit with Ferrous Iron, but
we would probably recommend an iron trap or filter first, then
use the MCS system afterwards to handle the hardness problem.
Often, people are willing to try our system because we have
such a good guarantee based on your satisfaction and because
any other system for iron is going to be much more expensive.
