Hello, saw some other postings here on similar problems with iron in well water and wanted to get some advice.
I am currently moving my water heater, softener, and pressure tank out of a unheated part of the house (that was heated by the excess head coming from the propane hot water heater). I figured while putting this effort in I should put a iron filter on because we have some rust stains randomly when washing our cloths (not as worried about a little orange in the tubs. We do use iron out salt in the softener we have but still randomly have these problems with the laundry. Doing some reading 4 PPM (our level) iron is right on the edge of what a softener can take care of.
My wife took the water in for testing yesterday and they tested only the hardness and iron because she asked for those tests. Results from the test were...
Hardness is 40 PPM
Iron 4 PPM
Not sure what information might be needed so here are some further details on my water system...
I will be installing a new 50 gallon electric hot water heater, moving my existing GE softener (GXSF40H01), Kenmore 390.291655 36 gallon pressure tank into a new space in the house. My flow rate is between 6.5-7 gallons per minute.
I saw a few filters including Terminox (reading past posts some have concerns about this site/company) and Aqua-Pure APIF150 and the further I looked the more confused I got on what would be best.
I wanted to see if anyone here might be able to point me in the right direction on what other information I should know to make the best decisions.
Thanks in advance.
