I'm looking at puting together a water softening system for a private well. I have hard water along with iron bacteria. The best quote so far is from a company calle budgetwater.com, but I cant find any info or reviews on their products.
So far my research seems to show that i need more then just a water softener. any help would be appreciated!

@boatboy,
You have "problem water" and I highly recommend that you find
a local company that sells, installs and services what they sell Cool

@H2O MAN,
I looked into a local company and the only one around was 5600 for their system(puronics) which was a water softener only. They also tried to sell me a ozone setup. I just have a hard time paying over $10,000 for a treatment system(which from what i could find is an excellent system, but my heads spinning from all of this!)

@H2O MAN,
40 miles west of portland, I actually found 2 companies the first told me just to dump 2 cups of bleach down the well every month and circulate it until my filters plugged then change them and repeat the next month. They did not want to help me with some kind of filter system. Wouldnt even come look they said our area had problem water and wed just have to deal with it. The test puronics did said we had hardness of 12, iron 1.2, ph 7.1, and iron bacteria.

@boatboy,
A chlorination system (chem feed), retention (120 gallon minimum - flush able) and
de-chlorination (1.5 cubic feet of back washing GAC) followed by a softener will do the job.

Ozone and open air chlorination are other options.

Avoid air injection and green sand/pot perm systems.

@H2O MAN,
the chlorination system is what i've been finding online also, and at a much more reasonable price then the ozone system, thanks for your input it helps alot, also your comments on other posts have been helpfull!

@boatboy,
I am sorry for my English.
It’s not necessary spent that money. BUY the chip staff
1. You have to check Hardness, Iron .than you adjust softener to quality of yours water. You can adjust about 95% softeners .Let see If yours hardness of well water is 18GPG than you have to add another 2 GPG= 20 GMG also check IRON to 1 PPM. always you have to add 5 GPG =25GPG for 2 PPM you add another 5 =10 GPG You need ozone for well because bacteria in the water but in order to get 100% performance of Light you have to install Water softener and reduce Hardness at least to 2 GPG.

Need more info before "pecking" order can be determined. Is the iron ferric or ferrous??? Best method I've found is: cartridge filter, softener, feed pump, metering device, 80-120 retention, b/w carbon filter. Keep chlorine residual between 2 & 4 ppm- Eco Water dealers have the best set-up to accomplish this with their ECR3500R30 w/relay to run feed pump. NEVER short cut when dealing with iron bacteria and get rid of the iron first !!!

Basically, on the off chance that you have hard water, you ought to likely have a water softener. The exact necessities of every household differ, as a few areas have a greater number of minerals than others.
