    Default Well Filtering / Softener Recommendations?

    I've been waiting in the background while waiting for the results of my water analysis. I would sincerely appreciate your recommendations on the type of filtering we need for our well. We are building a new home and have not connected anything to the well yet. The well was installed in 2007 and tested at that time. I just had the tests repeated at a certified lab after letting the well run for 30 - 60 minutes. (is that long enough?)

    I realize that we need to filter the iron, manganese and H2S. I am trying to determine if we would see much benefit from a softener. I've done enough research here on the forum to understand the preferred valves. I would really appreciate your recommendations on the specifics of the system you would install. Tank size?, media?, chlorine injection for backwash?, etc..
