Had a well go out and was forced to hook up my other well to my tanks. So far I have pumped 110k gallons over 3.5 days out of it. first problem is when it comes out of the well before hitting the tanks it comes out blackish with a lot of very fine sediment. After pumping clear within 24hrs it's back to dirty. Takes a couple days sitting in a bucket to settle. After going through the pressure and settlement tanks it's still a little dirty but nowhere near as bad. My next problem is the egg smell. I understand this can be hydrogen sulfide. Did a water test with the varify 16 parameter. Everything came back withing acceptable parameters except what looked like slightly elevated hydrogen sulfide that was somewhere between 0 and .5ppm. Also the sulfates looked to be between 200 and 400ppm. I plan to fix the other well but want to get a filtration system first. Was looking at an aio system. I would also like to have a pre filter like a spin down but I'm unsure what to look for with very fine sediment. I'm also unsure what kind of filtration medium to get. A little more info is I'm in Florida so got sandy soil and I'm about a mile from a river. The main well at times had a slight egg smell also. The current well pumps around 22gpm and I have it reduced to 15gpm before going into an 86 gal tank.

I was looking at the systems from Oxygen Chamber Systems (AIO) (Hydrogen Sulfide, Iron & Manganese Removal)

A spin down filter is not going to remove things that take a couple of days to settle.

A backwashing filter may be called for if a big cartridge filter is not able to last long enough.

I don't know how well sanitizing your well and plumbing would help the H2S smell.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
