Hello all, I am new to this site as well as water treatment systems. I found this site while doing some research of my own.
I currently have a private well in NJ and I have the "rotten egg" smell which I believe is sulfur, I also have a high iron count (I believe 10) and I also have hard water. I believe my flow rate is about 23gpm. I also have a 12 zone (6-8 heads each zone) irrigation system that currently bypasses my current system. I am not sure of the gpm each head is capable of, but I have yellow staining on brick and fences. I also have iron bacteria in my toilet tanks. My towels stink after one use and get staining below the water line in my toilet.
I first spoke with a local water treatment company who tried to sell me a twin tank Kinetico and covert my current tank to remove the sulfur and use my existing water softener tank as well as a new brine tank to chlorinate the water. Original quote was $3500 which is more than I could spend right now, so he offered me a certified used system installed with my tank conversion for $2200.
After some research and speaking to someone at x, I was given new info that the Kinetico system is old technology and isn't the right system for me. I was then offered a chlorine injection system and a Terminox 12" at budget. I also asked the guy there if this system would be sufficient to run my irrigation system through and was told yes. This whole system would have been 1700 delivered but not installed.
I am so lost and confused because I have been told by a few water treatment companies that a dual tank system is the best way to go so there is no downtime. I am not so concerned about a 30 minute cycle at 2-3am, I want to make sure I can get rid of the iron, hardness and sulfur so the water quality is improved. We are not so concerned about drinking since we have Poland Springs delivered but it would be much nicer to have good quality water.
Sorry for the long post (especially as a first timer) but any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all in advance.
