    Can someone please help me understand my water test results and recommend a treatment for high iron/manganese?
    Here are the results I got:

    Total Coliform ABSENT
    E. coli ABSENT
    Nitrate Nitrogen <1.0
    Nitrite Nitrogen <0.01
    Arsenic 0.002
    Iron *1.44 *UNACCEPTABLE
    Manganese *0.181*UNACCEPTABLE
    Hardness (CaCO3) 68
    Sodium 6.2
    Chloride <6
    pH 7.22
    Fluoride <0.20
    Conductivity 180
    Alkalinity 62
    Lead <0.002
    Copper <0.010
    Radon 250

    I just had my well deepened from 300' to 560' and these are the results I got. I tested the well 2 years ago and had high radon levels (13,000). This time it came back low. Does that seem reasonable?
    Thanks for your advice!
