Hi People First time poster.
I have a well that was drilled about 8 years ago 140' and after years of 13 ft deep wells this one was very mineral tasting. So we had a water co put in a system and they have done all the maintanance. It is very costly $250/4 times a year and they don't let like me to watch what they are doing and don't spend much time doing it? I built the house and do all my own motorcycle maintanance so I think I can handle it may self. My question is what type of filter system do I have? What is the normal maintanance associated with it? What would be a good place to source the filters and other goodies? I included a picture for reference of the system in its entirety. What I know is there is a cartridge filter, a big tank with a timer on it for back washing (looks like acetylene, but I know its not) and a bypass valve and what has been referred to as a salt container. Black square plastic 12" x12" x 3' high with a hose that goes to the valving at the top of the acetylene bottle.
Thanks in advance as this is the first place I have looked and seems like allot of knowledgeable people here.
