This is what I get for trying to do this myself I guess.
The original 'guy' that tested it 5 years ago said I needed chlorine and a huge Birm backwashing filter to clean the water. A that time he wated like $3K to do the install and it was far beyond my means at the time. Doing a lot of reading online and using the results of the Original test I received, it seemed like the right thing to do, add this Chlorinator. I was thinking at a later date I would evaluate getting a birm filter. I adjusted it down until I had just a touch of chlorine past the paper filter with a pool tester, < 1 PPM and there was no smell. In my limited knowledge I was attempting to oxidize the iron from ferrous iron to ferric iron and filter it out. The chlorinator uses about 3-3” tabs every 2 months and plugs a 20” - 30 microns filter each month.
I cannot find a number on the meter of the Kinetco and it looks just like this one:
When I get home tonight I will take some pics and measure the tanks but I would say off the top of my head they are +/- 30”
Water Quality test from yesterday
tannin md? Hard to read – water looks like Strong tea or apple cider.
( These was taken after letting the pump run for about a minute to get a good sample of the well water directly at the pump )
Public water install – Looks like I overstated the Cost its only $300 million.
Budget: well there really isn’t one but I have to “fix” the water. The quote for installing a new Kinetco was in the $3K range. Honestly I was prepared for up to $1K for a rebuild.
Doing a little more research on the link above, my head looks like that but there isn’t a number on the clear plastic head and I also notice that mine is missing the wishbone plastic piece at the bottom of the picture under clear plastic. Not that it probably matters at this point.
