The biggest problems with any plumbing system when using high iron content or hard water is that parts wear at an accelerated pace. You will encounter excessive lime and mineral scale build up on almost anything that water comes in contact with. You also will have to use more soap for laundry,dishwashing and bathing.If your water is very hard I would recommend you check into water softeners. Many of the nrw ones are farily easy to install by home owner.you just need to do some investigating to see what suits your needs If you do decide to go that route you will need to have your water tested for hardness level so you know how to set softener regeneration time and amount of salt usage. Many softener manufactures offer these tests for free. Hope this helps. Thanks

How to clean inside the iron


Mix dip-it and water and fill the iron, turn to high and then over a sink, unplugged, leave all the steam out. Dip-it is the coffee pot cleaner found in the grocery store, it's a powder. Desolve it water before putting it in the iron. I would guess you have some rust coming out when you use it? Give it a try.

Cabinet style water softeners (GE, Whirlpoool, Kenmore, Sears) are very inefficient at removing iron. They are not designed for water with high iron content such as yours. I might suggest setting the hardness level up as high as it can go (100gpg). Indications that water softener resin is getting fouled with iron are exactly as you described. Rusty water the day after a regeneration. You may need an iron filtration system before the softener so all the water softener has to do is remove the hardness.
Here is a link for an iron filtration system that works with air. Very simple, works very well.

How do i stop water dripping onto my clothes


ensure that your iron temprature is high enough to generate steam. if ironing delicate cloth ensure your steam option is switched off. if your iron has a filler cap or water container ensure they are fitted securely. water dripping usually when the iron is too cold to turn it to steam or you have a leak somwhere.

Help brown pool water, high iron content in well


your alkalinity is way too high. It shouldn't be above 7.8... 7.4 - 7.6 is ideal. I use muriatic acid to lower my ph. Also, your alkalinity is too high. should be between 80 and 120.
There is a sequestering agent you can use to try and drop the metals out of the water, if any are present. You stated you had high iron.
However, before tackling the iron, you need to get your ph under control. Chances are if you get your ph and alkalinity in line, your water will look a whole lot better.
If it is still cloudy, I would use a floc product.

My iron rowenta leaks when before and after i!m iroeing


my iron is different to yours but i used to have leaks as well.

for me it was because i have a heat setting dial that indicates that the steam function is activated when set to a very high temperature.

i also have a push lever on the top of the iron that controls how much, if any, steam is produced by the iron.

the amount of steam is regulated by letting more or less water through to be vaporised by the heating element.

if the heat setting is low and the steam setting has not been switched off then water is being allowed through but the element is not hot enough to vaporise the water. the result is water pooling and either dribbling through onto the clothing you are ironing or running off when you sit the iron up.

maybe it will help if you turn the steam setting off while the iron is not in use.

Dripping brown-spotted water on clothes while ironing.


Your water could have high iron content, therefore empty out the old water and use Distilled water in the iron.

If you are using Distilled water already then it's a problem with the inside of the iron. Get a new iron.

At high temp settings water leaks out of steam holes in bottom


You want to run the self-clean mode. Fill with water, then over a sink, with the iron facing down, press the self-clean button. Steam will eject, along with sediment and water deposits. You may have to repeat numerous times. The iron requires soft water, if you don't have soft water at the tap then buy bottled water at the grocery store to prevent this problem.

You can also buy a cleaning solution that you mix into the water reservoir, or you can make your own by filling the iron half-full of water then add white vinegar to the fill line, then perform the self-clean mode or steam mode over a sink.

Here is a Rowenta suggestions:

The iron is leaking.


Water: Use tap water in the iron. If tap water is hard or high in organic matter, we recommend using bottled spring water or mix tap water with distilled. Do NOT use 100% distilled water. Many softening systems may cause issues as well.
Auto-Off: If iron is equipped with auto off, you need to move iron or gently shake it an allow it to heat back up before beginning to iron.
Overuse of Burst of Steam: Allow more time between each burst of steam.

The Rowenta site does not list a manual for your older model, but here is their link:
