    I have dissolved iron in my water the house has 6 full bathrooms and 2 kitchens. I was told that a reverse osmosis would slow down my GPM in the house. What would be the best water treatment solution for my house.

    While you might want to use revers osmosis for drinking, many people don't like that it has no taste at all.

    You might want to post in the water softener forum and use the search function. There are ways to remove iron from your water. Depends on the concentration, which method(s) work best. Have you had your water tested so you have some numbers?

    You want to have numbers. City water? They probably publish numbers. Private well? Get your water tested.
