Iron-reducing bacteria in our water

I've had such good luck with this site -- here's a poser for you!
We bought this farm house in NY State - lots of sulfur in the rock - unable to extend the well b/c right now it's OK - tho' prone to drought problems. The toilets were getting black, and the slow draining shower stall leaves behind black residue. The former owner says it's iron reducing bacteria (I htink that's what she said). We have a conditioner attached to the system AFTER the iron reducing apparatus. She said we needed to add 6 GALLONs of chlorine bleach to the tank (30 gal) to offset the bacteria. That ALOT! There's filter that removes the chlorine. Is this something you can help with?
