Well Water Problems, Please help!
I've been using this well for about a year. I'm having problems w/ my well water turning my filter black, this just started and my wife is complaining that everything is getting stained an orange color. I installed a softener a fews months back to take care of the problems. Hardness "I think" has gone away. I've tested the water again after the filter (thats turning black) and before the softener. The following are the results,
PH- 7.6, calculated Hardness 161ppm, Iron- .25ppm, Manganese- ..05pm, Magnesium- 1.4ppm, Calcium- 62.2, Sodium- 2.9ppm, Silica, 34.74ppm
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Thanks for the response!!
My system is a fleck 7000, 40k. I'll remove the filter and try that. I do have a short piece of gal'v pipe in my system which I'll remove also. Yes I do ocassionally have a sulfur smell, my wife says more often than I realise. Is there a way I can make sure my resin is not ruined and will this take care of the iron? A few weeks back I realised my softener was not using any potassium, it had bridged inside my container. Would you recommend using salt vs potassium? No health problems, just thought it would be better.
