My wife and I are in the process of buying a house we like, but the Iron content is 16 ppm and manganese is 0.96, pH 6.5. There is a rotten egg smell in both hot and cold that takes a long time to dissipate if the water is run. There is reddish brown staining in the toilets. Currently there is a 1996 two tank treatment system, but it obviously is not up to the task. House has been unoccupied for almost two years, but we ran the water for a least 8 hours total recently, but still have the high numbers
Am I better off passing on the house rather than try to treat water with this high of an iron content?
We have spoke with 4 local water treatment business and get 4 different opinions, often also explaining why the other guys system will be ok for a few months then fail. Would really like to get educated here, thanks.
