Why does my water turn yellow ? Good Question ! At Chuck, The Water Man, we are successful at solving this problem. Water from your private well may contain iron. Iron may be “in solution” or “out of solution”. If it is out of solution, the water will appear yellow or even orange as it comes out of the tap. If it is in solution, the water will appear clear as it comes out. Eventually,if left exposed to the air, it will oxidize causing it fall out of solution. As it oxidzes, little particles of rust are formed. This turns the water yellow or brown. You have probably guessed… We have a fix for that. Call us at 303-543-9600.
