    Best way to bleach/cleanse well?

    I just bought a house that was built in 1977. The water test showed violation levels of coliform bacteria in the well water (although no E. coli). I was told that bleaching the well and plumbing would likely resolve this issue. I understand that there are at least two general ways to do this -...

    Do charcoal filters remove chlorine or just the "smell" of the chlorine?

    I would like to put a whole house charcoal filter on my house, to save the brass to PEX connectors from eventual ruin from chlorine that is in the water. Do you know if these filters actually remove the chlorine, or do they just remove the smell of the chlorine from the water?

    Chlorine adding to well water.

    So after some research I decided it was best to add chlorine to my water for algae issues. I think maybe I added a little too much compared to what I read. I can smell just a little chlorine in my water when taking a shower or whatever it be. Should I worry? The smell isn't overpowering. I just...
