brown water

I am trying to figure out a way to get rid of the brown water.
To start I have well water and a septic system. There is a backflush system attached to the plumming. The problem I have is brown water. My father was told when the backflush system was installed that it would fix the problem. The plumber was wrong. I have been dealing with this issue for years. It shows up the worst in the toilet tank.
Does anyone know of a good houshold water filter system. The water was tested and we found the water has a high iron count.
The tank was totaly cleaned on the 7th 10 days later the pictures speak a thousand words.

Re: brown water

You need a whole house water filtering system. You DO NOT need an RO system, but you do need something to filter out the iron in the water. A water softner with a dissolved oxygen generator will 99.9% fix this problem. I suggest the Water D.O.G. at waterdogworks.com to find more info. Also the magazine Water Technology is very informative for info at watertechonline.com Good luck. Process of elimination.
