    We just got our test results back on our well and I have tried pulling a few websites to interpret the results but have not had any luck. Could someone knowledgeable in this area please help with the numbers?
    Bacteria was done on a separate test and came back good at 0/100. The other test is listed below.

    I have also noticed an orange looking film at the bottom of the toilets which I am guessing is iron? There is no noticeable smell to the water at all.
