we are in process of selling our home in nj. they have stringent water tests where we live. we had the tests done and we failed for iron turbidity and magnese. we cleaned out softener by using iron out and we regenerated about 5 times. got another test done and passed magnese failed iron and turbidity. the test results were iron .8 max limits are 0.3 turbidity was 1.7 max limits 1. we would like to avoid getting a new softener is there anything cost effective we can do to get the results we are looking for?

@Coolmom59h,
If getting rid of iron was simply a matter of masking the results, then there would be no need for stringent water tests. Trying to trick prospective buyers can lead to lots of unforeseen costs.

@Coolmom59h,
And get a liver profile. Increased iron intake over a long period of time will kill your liver.

@JTT,
not trying to trick buyers want a solution that is cost effective for us. we are in process of buying a new softener so im not trying to get away with not doing what i have to i just wanted to see if there was a way to add to the system already in place to aid the softener.

@Coolmom59h,
I don't believe that a H2O softener will fix your iron problems. Have you talked with any companies about a rust filter?
