Tannins are dissolved, decayed organic matter and are generally not a health risk when found in water. In fact, most people drink a form of tannin every day in the guise of tea or coffee. It’s a very common occurrence here in the Annapolis Valley and in large quantities, tannins will typically cause a yellow or brownish tinge in your water supply.

The Water Shed offers various tannin removal options which include our own Colour Softener, that we designed and manufacture onsite. This unit removes tannin by ion-exchange, using Anion exchange media, and it regenerates with salt in the same way water softeners function.

Let us test your WATER!
