A: It is avoidable.
Not all wells contain the staining mineral iron. Floridan Aquifer wells and Intermediate Salt & Pepper wells(if available) can be drilled to avoid any iron staining. Iron can sometimes be present in Rock, Gravel Pack, and Shallow wells. We do not recommend treating irrigation water for iron. If iron staining is a concern, we recommend drilling a Floridan Aquifer or Intermediate well.
