What is Iron Ochre?

Chances are, you know what iron ochre looks like even if you might not understand what it is. If you have ever entered your basement and discovered a strange rusty leak forming around your water heater, that is the effects of iron ochre.

Once the bacteria forms, the texture thickens, like a gel or industrial fluid. Because the contaminated water sticks to the plumbing components, it can rot your pipes from the inside.

The thicker body also makes it more difficult for water to pass through your home’s piping, causing backups and overflows. As a result, your home can fill with odor, bacteria, and other health concerns.
