Remove Rust Stains on Irrigation Systems

If you happen to have an irrigation system that uses well water, you probably already know that you have  ugly rusty stains on patios, driveways, walls, landscapes and even the grass and vegetation itself.   Maybe you switched to well water because it was a lot cheaper (I.e., you had no city water bill), but the trade-off was a lot of stains on your grass, plants, building and sidewalks.  Maybe you think that it's really not worth it.  Hold on!  There is an easy solution. American Hydro Systems' specialty irrigation products provide solutions designed to treat well water used in irrigation systems. American Hydro Systems has been providing specialty irrigation products for rust stain removal and prevention as well as fertilizers and scale reducers to the irrigation industry for over twenty-five years.  With Rid O' Rust, you can create the best-looking landscape on the planet.  You can take the yuck out of using sprinkler systems with Rid O' Rust.  Remove those ugly rusty stains from patios, driveways, walls and landscapes and prevent them forever!  Rid O' Rust products deliver maximum results with a minimum of work and expense, and delivers a great payback for your irrigation dollar.  Once a Rid O' Rust system is installed, all you need to do is keep Rid O Rust in the tank.  There are three types of Rid O' Rust:
  • Rid O' Rust Remover  - removes sprinkler stains immediately;
  • Rid O' Rust Preventer Formula - prevents stains forever; and
  • Calcium Cracker - prevents calcium stains.
To use Rid-O-Rust, it is injected into the water line with a chemical injection pump.  The Rid-O-Rust keeps the iron suspended so that it cannot stick to anything.  It basically just falls off whatever it touches.  Many customers report amazing results with Rid-O-Rust.  If you are having rust problems with your irrigation system, maybe Rid-o-Rust is worth a try.

I have a well-based sprinkler system with five zones that runs twice a week. It was installed recently and is turning a newly planted hedge (among other things) orange. Please tell me what solution you recommend and the initial and ongoing cost. Thank you in advance.

Tim, If you want to do it right and do it once, then I recommend this first: https://www.uswatersystems.com/us-water-lab-water-test.html We need to know what is in the water an at what levels in order to treat it properly. There's a video on the page that explains it. Here's the video: <iframe src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/131894369?title=0&byline=0&portrait=0" width="500" height="281" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen></iframe> <p><a href="https://vimeo.com/131894369" rel="nofollow">Affordable Water Testing from US Water Systems</a> from <a href="https://vimeo.com/user656281" rel="nofollow">US Water Systems</a> on <a href="https://vimeo.com" rel="nofollow">Vimeo</a>.</p>

Will the rid O' rust product help eliminate any "foul" odor from the irrigation system? If not, what would you suggest? Thank you, Ron

What kind of odor is it? Can you describe the smell?
