    Post Moving Into a Well Fed House

    Hello All,
    I am getting ready to move into a home in a few weeks that I just had tested for inorganic. I am still working on getting a bacterial test done through the local Health Department. This house has nothing in terms of a pressure tank and/or filtering. I am currently in KY and the house is in NC, so any info I have I have been collaborating with an in-law down there to get. I will be heading down on the weekend of the forth and will hopefully be able to gather the actual flow rate from the well along with motor size etc.

    I am looking for help on what equipment to get to filter/ soften the water. There are two bathrooms total, and a sink in the kitchen, all on the first floor of the house which is approx 50 to 60 ft from the well. I am looking for low maintenance equipment. Any Guidance and/or help would be greatly appreciated.

    Well depth is 215 ft.
    Level is around 150 when full.
    Casings size 6
    No pump info except it is submersible.
    I was told GPM is 1 ( I am thinking this is in terms of well recovery rate.)
    Inorganic Test results:
    All measurements are in mg/L ; sample was taken at the well.
    Arsenic .022
    Barium <.1
    Cadmium <.001
    Calcium 140
    Chloride 210
    Chromium <.01
    Copper <.05
    Fluoride .37
    Iron .99
    Lead <.005
    Magnesium 22
    Manganese .94
    PH 7.4
    Selenium <.005
    Silver <.05
    Sodium .73
    Sulfate 10.00
    Total Alkalinity 296
    Total Hardness 440
    Zinc 1.10

    I was contemplating going ahead and shocking the system while I am down there, but I will probably be re-doing all the plumbing anyway which leads me to waiting until then.

    As far as a pressure tank and low maintenance equipment, this is all you need.

    You might want to post this in the Water Softener Forum as well for help with the filter and softener.
