A call to the local Kinetico dealer for a free estimate detailing what you need would be a giant step toward answering that question.

You have significant hardness, iron, and manganese. There is no inexpensive treatment for that kind of well water.

Also, with Kinetico you get one of the best warranties in the industry and a reliable, long lived softener.

If you want to be sure about getting everything including the smell out of the water and you believe you MUST go with kinetico, you will need a 2060F with ceramic media, a 2060S softener, and a 2060F Sulfur Guard, installed in that order. I hope you have a wad of cash because the dealer in my area would charge you $9,000.00 for this setup.

Cleanwaterman,

No real need for the 2060F. That would be great, but not really needed. A 4060 ceramic/softener maybe. Ceramic media is used for extremely sedimentt problems. I have one in my mother's house (2100F) because her well water has preciptated iron and sand.

Macrolite media (ceramic) is very effective and filters down to 3-5 microns. The SulfurGuard is an excellent way to get rid for that sulfur odor.
