have recently moved back into the home I was raised in. My mother
lived there until her death and she left it to me. My family and I
moved back in and I immediately noticed water stains on almost all
the old porcelain fixtures. The stains can not be removed so the
fixtures will have to be replaced. I consulted with the water
company, found at kineticotx.com, who took a water sample and
explained to me that the water had manganese in it.
seems, can act as a solvent, and the manganese from the pipes can
cause stains on fixtures, clothing, utensils, plates and glassware.
The stains are black in color and they can not be removed. The
options from the water softener provider
a filtration system. That option was certainly better than having the
fixtures replaced and them becoming re-stained by the same process. I
also did not want any of our plates, glassware or clothing damaged.
There was an unpleasant taste that I did not remember from my
childhood from the drinking water as well. We ordered a system to
prevent further damage after the new porcelain was installed.
