Water Color Test
Iron can make water reddish; sediments or plant matter can turn water brown or green; sulphur can make it yellow. Assessing the color of your water can indicate what may be contaminating your system.
Is Discolored Water Harmful?
Whether or not discolored water is harmful to your health depends on the substance causing the discoloration. Because of fluctuations in water pressure, construction or irrigation, your water may pick up minerals from nearby deposits and have a color. It may also have a poor taste. To determine whether or not it is safe to drink, request a water color test that will tell you what substance or mineral is causing the discoloration.
