water treatment options
Have well water.
Some hardness, a lot of iron, some radon, acid water.
Current treatment: acid water treatment unit(consumable media), then water conditioner with resup system(phosphoric acid for iron). Then I added carbon cartridge to absorb radon.
Results: still have iron problem--particularly noticeable in that water runoff on plants when overwater is dark brown. Water taste lousy--would like to add hardness for taste.
Past experience, a chlorine injector totally eliminates iron problems, but do not want in drinking water and adding a reverse osmosis unit at faucets is excessive work.
Iron: switch from resup to water conditioner salt with iron ingredients. Is this more or less effective?
Add bubbleup radon unit. Air should oxidize iron allowing filtration. Anyone have experience with this?
Switch order acid neutralizer and water conditioner. Acid neutralizer adds calcium to water. Is this a problem? At what point does calcium level become a problem with pipes?
I have seen small inline cartridge units that neutralize acid with either calcium or magnesium. Any pros/cons on these versus large tank acid neutralizing unit (which backflushes with salt)?
