Hydrogen peroxide water treatment

Hi everyone. I am looking for some "experts" on residential water treatment that can steer me in the right direction. I live about 26 miles west of Chicago and draw my water from a private well. Unfortunately the raw water from the well is terrible - there is a high amount of iron, hydrogen sulfide, and manganese (and associated stink and staining!). I have tried many things to make my water "perfect" which is my goal, and I am now leaning towards Hydrogen Peroxide as an oxidizer but need some guidance.

I currently have a dry pellet in-line chlorinator, retention/contact tank, and a backwashing centaur carbon filter. It has worked decent for a couple years, but the carbon is shot, and chlorine and iron is getting through the system. Maintenance is also a pain, because I have to disassemble and soak parts of the chlorine "hopper" in muriatic acid about every 2 months.

I am specifically looking at a Stenner Proportional Injection System (Stenner Pump Company - Proportional Injection Systems) but don't know much about the unit, or using peroxide as an oxidizer. I am looking for something a little more reliable and durable than my current system, and also a little more "non toxic". I am also not sure about the ongoing costs or amount of peroxide used in such a system.

I would really appreciate if anyone has any helpful information on this Stenner unit, or knows of an honest "peroxide specialist" around the Chicago area.
