High Iron and Water Softener / Filtration
I'm looking for some advice with water filtration and iron removal. I also have manganese, some hardness, and my water is moderately acidic.
I presently have a Watermann softener (with 1 cubic ft of fine mesh resin) and an acid neutralizer. Both units are ~15 years old, and the softener is now completely dead (leaking water at the head due to corrosion).
We've had the water tested in the past (after it went thru treatment) and both units appeared to be doing their job. Iron was removed, water was soft, and pH was raised above 6.5. The existing (now broken) softener was recharging 3-4 times/week.
Since I probably have to replace everything, what would people suggest that I install?
I just had the water tested (pre-treatment), and the results are listed below:
Iron 19.1 mg/l
Manganese 13.3 mg/l
Hardness 101 mg/l (5.9 GPG)
Bathrooms: 1 and 1/2 (only 1 with a tub/shower)
People: 3 adults
Water usage: ~200 gallons/day
Thanks for any help or advice that you can offer!
