    Default New House, New to Well Water - Advice Appreciated!

    Just closed today on our new house. Water is well water (private). I had the Kinetico guy out today, he tested it and got the these results:

    Color: Yellowish

    Hardness: 20 gpg

    Iron: 2.6 ppm

    The water (cold or hot) has a strong sulfur smell. Since he sells Kinetico, his recommendation was (of course) two Kinetico systems, one for softening/iron/tannin removal and another for sulfur removal for a total of $7000. Ouch!

    This house has 2 full baths (master has jacuzzi tub & separate shower). 5 people ( 2 adults, 1 teenager. 2 pre-teens). I'm sorry I don't have the full testing results, but if you kind folks could provide some guidance I'd appreciate it! I know this is primarily a DIY forum, but I'd need to find someone local to install whatever I end up getting. Thanks in advance!

    Mike
