It's used for all household purposes.  It oxidizes certain dissolved

oxidized compounds are insoluble, and will not pass through mechanical
filters in the water filtration system.

What on earth were people using the water for after it was filtered 
through that manganese greensand? I can't imagine you would want to 
drink it.
