i had my water tested and here where the results.
tds - 52.8
turbidity - 1
hardness - 1.59
Iron(FE) - .28
I need some help, first thing I do not understand is turbidity, could someone explain this. Also, i have a lot of red stains in the toilet bowl and have a inline cartridge type filter. I had my water tested and got the above results. At the bottom it said it recommended the following equipment.
Aqua-Pure Backwashing Filter CBF100 w/ Media N-10p
I have searched for the this Aqua pure on the internet, could someone tell me if this is a good filter unit and is it something that would last.
When i was at the plumbing supply house one of the guys there suggested that I try to shock my well with chlorine, so I purchased a kit from them where you mix some it it in a 5 gallon bucket and pour it in and then it has some chlorine tablets that you drop down in your well, he said this may clear up the iron for quite a few months, that he knows some people that do this a couple of times a year and just use a regular cartridge filter like I already have.
did I waste my time doing this, the product was called Well-Safe, a plumber who lives up above who is retired now told me that I was wasting my time, could someone give me some guidance here, i just used the chlorine today and suppose to not use my water for about 12 hours and then flush the chlorine out with a outside water hose stretched away from my house. Now confused, but what i had read on teh internet, shocking it with chlorine is how to control Iron.
Thanks for any advice.
