Hello! Hoping someone can help me with my water issue. I live on the NC coast, and have a well water system. I have very hard water, and have installed a new water softener (through a dealer) within the past 8 months. I still have a problem with staining in the sinks/toilets. I was told that I have manganese in the water. (My roommate, who has blond hair, has a distinctive orange tint developing in her hair). Does anyone have any suggestions about an in-line iron/manganese filter that I can splice into my existing water softener to correct this problem?? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks & have a great day!!

Softeners usually remove manganese. So how much manganese is in your water? How much hardness and iron is in your water? What is the pH of the water? What size softener do you have, the SFR (service flow rate)? How many people in the house?

Thank you for contributing Gary. There is a poster at John's that is reporting the rotten egg thing if you care to respond.

Sorry Gary, I see your and the other Gary's good advice on the top sites and just presumed you were on the ceramic tile site of John Bridge's.
