Not all water on Whidbey Island is the same. Some neighborhoods are lucky and have wonderfully clear water. Other areas have horrible, stinky, thick, brown, bad-tasting water that stains all the house water fixtures. Most of the wells on Whidbey contain iron, manganese, calcium, magnesium, and sometimes tannin, nitrates and arsenic. The water is hard and many homes have water with a sulphur smell, which is a by-product of iron. The list above describes the recommended systems that work well for our local water issues on Whidbey Island.
