Default Well water and sprinkler stains: treatments ?

We are drilling a well for irrigation in the new house and seems that the immediate area well have a lot of iron which stains driveways and siding. What options are out there to treat the water to avoid this?

I know it can be done, but it has been 20 years since I learned about it

I don't think deeper is the answer.

"Ferrous Iron in Well Water. Often called clearwater iron because it is clear when poured, this substance is found in water that contains no oxygen. Typically, it comes from deeper wells and groundwater sources. Carbon dioxide acts on iron in the ground to form soluble ferrous bicarbonate. In water this forms ferrous ions (Fe++)."

You're probably going to have to filter it. Which one to use, depends on your water tests.

We went from 30 feet to over 70 feet....rust is less but still present. You can get water softener systems (used at Mar-A-Lago golf courses and fancy resorts) but they ain't cheap and not 100%.

you'll need to go much deeper, or install an iron removal system like one of these. water softeners only remove calcium and magnesium hardness.

bottom line in all this is it largely depends on where you're located.... Hit and miss. I'm in Cantonment, pretty deep well. nothing but clear no odor water. there may be a little luck involved..... when I was son the west side, I hit the right water too, clear, clean no stink... Call it luck if you want.
