Add Iron water and you get yellow-to-orange stains with associated odors. Manganese causes similar stains. Sometimes manganese will have a residual sulfur-like odors accompanying the staining. Many times, there are more serious (health related) contaminants. Often, filtration for the more serious problems requires the hardness, iron & Manganese be removed first to prevent damage & scale buildup on the filter for the more serious problems.
