How to Deal with Rust Stains in your Sink, Tub and Toilet

Water is a natural solvent, absorbing a little bit of everything it comes in contact with, sometimes resulting in unpleasant odours, taste and colour. If there are high levels of clear iron in your water, you may not notice at first, but over time you will see rust stains in your sink, tub and toilet. This occurs when the clear iron dries and is exposed to the air. Red iron in your water will be more obvious, as the water coming out of your tap will be brown and your water will taste metallic.

In addition to the unpleasant look and taste iron has on your water, both clear and red iron can build-up inside your pipes and fixtures, causing clogs. Also, certain bacteria feed off the iron and create a smelly slime inside toilet tanks and water heaters.
