A reddish film near water basins?

After a couple of weeks, a reddish film appears to coat itself around watery areas of the home, such as bathtubs, sinks and water taps. It's easy enough to clean off with cleaners, but I'm wondering that this stuff may be? What could it be saying about the quality of the water in my area?


It's equally happening around the kitchen as well as the bathroom.

    There's iron in the water. It's harmless, but it does make you keep up with cleaning sinks, tubs, and toilets.

    It comes from the type of soap you use. You need to wash any soapy deposits away after use.

    It's rust deposits from the water in your area. A water softener will make it go away!

    Could be the carbon dioxide in the water. It makes it look like rust or an orange red colour. It’s not harmful it’s only the carbon dioxide leaving the water.
