Well water can contain almost anything. A good reason to have it tested. Most water treatment companies will test for free; however, this usually only tests for minerals and not bacteria. For that you may need to submit samples to your state agency. Both tests are a good idea. Yes, most minerals can be removed with various types of treatment(s). Bacteria is more difficult and may require UV treatment - or similar. One very good idea is to have all your water input through a 'whole house' filter to remove unwanted solids (sand, etc). Then treat for the specific 'problems'.
