Water Treatment : How To Control Well Water Iron Bacteria

What is Iron Bacteria Well Water?

(Galion Ella and Cremothrix) Iron bacteria live by obtaining energy through the oxidation of ferrous iron to ferric iron and utilize the resulting CO2 to create organic molecules for their existence. Growths of these bacteria result in a gelatinous material, which can clog pipes and cause a foul taste. This material often forms in the tanks of toilets and will produce a "rainbow" slick on the surface. The most common non-pathogenic bacteria found in water, is iron bacteria. Iron bacteria can be readily identified by the red, feathery floc which forms overnight at the bottom of a sample bottle containing iron and iron bacteria

What Are The Problems With Well Water Iron Bacteria ?

Iron bacteria can often produce unpleasant tastes and foul odors : "swampy," "oily " "cucumber," "sewage," or "musty." . Iron bacteria do not produce hydrogen sulfide, the "rotten egg" smell, but do create an environment where sulfur bacteria can grow and produce hydrogen sulfide.

Iron bacteria will typically cause yellow, orange, red, or brown stains and off-colored water. It is also sometimes possible to see a rainbow colored, oil-like sheen on the water.

Iron bacteria produce a sticky slime which is typically reddish orange color, but may be yellow, brown, or grey. A "feathery," growth may also be seen, particularly in standing water such as a toilet tanks.
