I have a system on my well......Iron filter, water softener, UV filter, RO for drinking water......It was set up by the technician, but I basically know how it works.

I have a monster system in the church that I have to maintain and a iron removal system in my own house that does not use salt. What sort of problems are you dealing with? Your state or local governments should have some guidance for you

Heres a link to what our Dept. of the Environment has on water quality in wells. Getting some basic knowledge from a source that is not selling you treatment is a good first step IMO.

I have a green sand filter system in my house for Iron. My levels are not high but the Ph is low so I also have an aerator. It does not use any salt unlike softener based system. Depending on your levels it may be something to consider. it's more expensive up front than a softener but no ongoing salt expense and work to deal with. I've had mine for 10 years with no added expense for maintenance.
