    just had a Kinetico 2100 uninstalled from my house after 3 months due to bad item or bad installation. I still believe the right Kinetico system may work, but don't want to get burned again, so looking at all other options and want to know if anyone out there has advice for me.

    I have a well and in my area there tends to be high iron, sulfu and manganese.

    My well:
    3-7 ppm iron (both ferrous and ferric)
    3.5 ppm Hydrogen Sulfide
    Hardness: 14
    2.0 ppm manganese
    7.2-7.5 ph
    247 TDS
    Some fine/small rust particles or sediment from time to time like sand

    My water always looks clear, but at times looks like there many be a faint black tint in the back of the toilet bowls. If I let the water sit out, it eventually turns yellow. I have a deep well and the water is never orange or red or anything. No matter what system I have in, and there have been three now and all have had filter cartridges in additon to the softners, the filters only last 3 weeks and then go bad and my water smells bad like metal/blood and rotten eggs.

    I dont' know what option there is for me but think I am down to two options according to people.
