TANNINS & ACIDIC WATER

Tannins (tannic acid) in your water. Tannins are a byproduct of decaying vegetation (oak leaves) & will cause staining of fixtures, appliances and will cause a discoloration of the water.  When Tannins are present the water will also have an acidic PH. 

TREATMENT OF TANNINS

Tannins can be removed by a couple different treatments.  First you can use a sodium charged ion exchange media (similar to a softener).  However, this media needs to have any iron removed prior to the unit since Iron tends to foul the media and shortens it's life.  Tannins can also be removed by Reverse Osmosis, this process can simply be a drinking water system or a larger unit to process the water for the whole house.  Each of these applications needs to have an analysis to determne the best application.

acid water treatment

Low PH water needs to be treated by running the water through calcium carbonate.  As the water passes through the calcium it absorbs the calcium increasing the PH to the normal reading of 7.6.  This will also increase the hardness in the water.  Low Ph in the water makes the water more aggressive destroying any metal (fixtures, plumbing) the water comes in contact with.

Generally, if you have Tannins your water would need to be treated for Iron, Hardness, Acidity and the Tannins.  This treatment takes someone with experience to make solid recommendations to provide quality and quanity of water.
