    Default Blonde and Left Handed Needs Help/Advice

    I live in North Texas, I have a private water well for household use and irrigation of about 2 Acres and no date on drilling or depth (previous owner deceased) of well. The water treatment sales people are sometimes not knowledgeable. I have talked to quite a few (about 7) and there first response is I need a water softener and they have not even looked at the test results. And if that is what I need so be it. I do have an “Iron Filtration System” pre pressure tank (was with the place when I bought it).

    I am trying to figure out what type of device, filter, or system I need. My objectives is to have clean healthy water for household use and good water for gardening. From my nonprofessional view, I know pH and/or sodium is one of or my only problem (form a gardening standpoint).

    Here are the results from two different test:


    Sodium 240 mg/L
    Alkalinity as CaCO3 350 ml/L
    Bicarbonate Alkalinity as CaCO3 260 mg/L
    Carbonate Alkalinity as CaCO3 90 mg/L
    Hydroxide Alkalinity as CaCO3 ND
    Phenolphthalein Alkalinity as
    CaCO3 45 mg/L
    Total Dissolved Solids 500 mg/L
    Chloride 12 mg/L
    pH 9.05 pH Units

    Another test:

    Alkalinity (Phenol) 10 mg/L
    Alkalinity (Total) 310 mg/L
    Bicarbonate 310 mg/L
    Calcium 3.2 mg/L
    Carbonate 20 mg/L
    Chloride 5 mg/L
    Copper 0.03 mg/L
    Fluoride 0.11 mg/L
    Hardness 8 mg/L
    Iron 0.02 mg/L
    Lead less than 2 mg/L
    Magnesium 1.16 mg/L
    Nitrate 0.3 mg/L
    pH 9.018
    Sodium 175 mg/L
    Sulfate 54 mg/L
    Total Solids 731 mg/L

    Any input, suggestions, advice on what to do, equipment or brand of equipment to look at would be MUCH appreciated. I am pulling what hair I have left out trying to figure out what to do. I do not want to say money is no object but I will spend what is necessary if it will fix the problem. I do plan to live here forever. Therefore, I want to keep in mind maintaince and repairs.

    Do you have any filtration already in place?

    Were the water test samples taken before any filtration?

    Thanks!
