well what happens is a tea bag is placed in hot water and exhales all of the tea flavour into the water and makes the hot water turn brown and makes the tea leaves turn into bits of brown stuff. ANS2: Hot water dissolves and leaches out soluble flavors, tannic acid and pigments from the leaves and produces an infusion that we call tea.
First- make sure your wearing gloves. Brown water could come from- fresh fill water form a well which has tannins or iron in it. It could be algae or it could turn brown if your PH is so low (under 5) that it is burning the carbonates out of the water. This could make it look like coffee). Low PH could also be oxidizing metals in the water.
Lack of water can cause the leaves to turn bright yellow and fall off. I guess they could turn brown after turning yellow but before falling off. There is a fertilizer specially formulated for hibiscus. The hibiscus fertilizer works well to produce dark green leaves and abundant blooms on the plant, if you provide adequate water and lots of direct sunlight (several hours per day).
Iodine is used to find starch. If no starch is present, a rusty brown color will appear. If starch is present like in bread and potato, the iodine when put on will turn blackish blue. That is known as a chemical reaction. Since there is no starch in water, the iodine in the water stays the same color as it started (brown). Hope that helps!! :)
Low water levels or the well is going dry or soil leaching in. Get a water test kit at the hardware store, or if you live in the country, call the local agriculture agent for your County for advice. Do not use it for cooking or drinking until it's tested, and boil and cool a bit for dishes and toothbrushing.
Yes you can fill a pool with hard well water. I have an above the ground pool and I have hard water. After you add shock and the rest of your chemicals, the water will turn brown. To get this out you will have to buy a chemical called metal out. It works great. You could probably add the metal out first. On start up of the pool you will have to use a few…
