Well water with iron. What should we do?
« on: November 07, 2018, 09:38:36 pm »
Our hot tub is scheduled to be delivered this week.  We have well water that definitely has iron in it...

1. Is this a problem?
2. If so, what are the possible solutions?

(Other than buying 250 gallons of bottles water 😂😳😬)

There are iron out and metal out additives for pools and tubs. I have never had the iron problem but when I got the tub they gave me a bottle in case I did. I think its still on the shelf.

I was looking at trucking water in for my tub. I ended up bringing in a water sample to our dealer. He tested and the rports show our unfiltered well water was in pretty good shape for the tub.  We had iron bacteria which does not show up on the test. To cure the orange staining we got iron and scale remover and it cleaned right up.....

My well water has iron. I have a calcite filter as well as a water softener. They do a great job cleaning up my water. The water comes out of the well orange before filtration. I use the filtered, softened water to fill my tub then add the appropriate amount of calcium to increase hardness. I also use a metal gone product with each water change.
