Well water contamination

My well water leaves green spots in my tub. Is that copper? I am able to remove from the tub, but how can I filter this out of the water?

Sounds like you probably have acidic well water that is leaching the green out of your copper water pipes.
You can add an acid neutralizer to balance the pH.
Contact your Health Department or a water conditioning company to test your well water and advise you.
Good Luck!
