Manganese in well water
I have an accepted offer on a house and I have had (as a condition) a water test done by a lab and the report came back good to the exception of the manganese level. I am in Canada and the acceptable level is less than 0.05mg/L.
I have read about manganese and apparently there is no health issue when the number is higher. My water tested 0.45. I was reading that the problem with this number would be the smell of the water, the bad taste as well as staining inside the toilet bowls, the dishwasher and stains on clothes when you wash them.
There is no smell to the water and the water tastes fine and I didn't see any stains. The house was not lived in for 7 months. I was wondering if I should get another water test just to check the manganese level and is it possible that even if the manganese level is high (as in my case) the water could still be good. The iron level rated well under the recommended standards.
