What can I do to prevent brown water?

If brown water occurs only once, for example after a repair or after a long period not using the installation, there is usually no reason for concern.

However, if discoloration occurs again, more often, or after a short time, there is a need to take action. Because these signs indicate rust in the drinking water installation. This can lead to serious damage to the pipes in the long term. There is also the risk of contamination through bacterial growth.

In that case, drinking water pipes should be protected. This can be achieved by adding a mineral solution. This forms a protective layer into the pipe wall, which effectively protects the pipe from corrosion. This protective layer can also be formed in pipe that are already corroded, provided the corrosion process has not yet progressed too far.
