Water containing a yellow tint or having the look of coffee or tea may contain tannin. This is typically associated with underground decaying vegetation. A Springsoft specialty system can be designed to solve this nuisance issue. A stand-alone water conditioner utilizing a specialty tannin resin is one available option. Alternatively, this tannin resin can be integrated within a standard water conditioning system allowing one unit to soften and filter tannin simultaneously. This option may be more budget friendly when selecting a total water treatment system.
