When dissolved in water, iron and manganese typically leave rust-orange or black stains in sinks, bathtubs, toilets, and any other household appliance that uses water. These minerals are found in many water sources distributed throughout homes. Water is a natural solvent and, given the correct conditions and necessary time, will dissolve anything it comes into contact with. With a good water filtration system, however, you will be able to eliminate these minerals from your household water supply.
