Rust is formed when dissolved iron (ferrous) oxidizes to a particle form (ferric). Homes on urban water supplies get rust from corrosion of old distribution piping which is common in many Canadian cities. Homes on private wells can have naturally occurring rust or through the well system. Rust is not considered as a health contaminant but is recommended to be removed for aesthetic reasons (taste, odour, colour, sediment and protection of plumbing devices such as water heater). Since rust is a particle, it can be removed by sediment filters. Homes on private wells that have high ferrous iron (dissolved) should consider a whole house iron reduction system.
