I am looking to add a filtration purification system to my well and was wanting to have some comments from some one with experience on the subject.
I know this is not the proper forum, but didn't see one with well water or drinking water or filtration systems.
I have looked online at several system.
The one that I like has the following set up.
pre-filter 5 micron
carbon tank backflush 300,000 gal min.
post filter micron
polyphosphate chemical water softener
Any comment or recommendations on this topic?
You have a very complete system there, if anything overkill. If you truly do need all this, you will need cases of filters as they will plug fairly often. If you need it that bad, I would set it up with two parallel big blue filters for each stage so you can isolate and replace elements without shutting down your water to the house. And pressure gauges to measure drop across each stage to know when to replace or clean.

At this time I have no filtration system.
My water comes from a shallow well approximately 100'.
I have sediment and I am concerned with contamination from farms in my area.
We were very low last year and when we had our well tested it had e-coli.
I would also like to reduce the scaling. I have to clean my shower head every few months.
I am concerned about the polyphosphate. I know it is used a lot in food processing, but to use it for my drinking water is a concern.
If I used the ceramic filter would I need the sub micron filter?
