I am on a well and have a soft water softener as well as an Iron filter connected. Recently the water guy put a Potassium permanganate pot for the iron filter to draw on and help with the iron filter. When he left, he told me he dumped 1/2 of the jug of permanganate ( About 2.5 pounds) into the pot and told me to add more chemical every 45 days, but he did not tell me how much to add.
So, my question is, how much do I add every 45 days, another 2.5 pounds, a pound, 1/2 pound ??

Like they say, life sucks, then you die. LOL. I gave up and poured a tall drink and watched TV.
Sorry for the derail. No idea what a potassium whatamacallit is.
NPS uses this for it's Controlled burn program. You drop ping pong balls full out of a Helo at 200 ft.and you've got a Fireline.
Red, iron taste. The well guy doubled the depth of the others. Same thing. The neighbor 400 ft away is perfect. He said I can punch a new well, but you gotta pay for it and no guarantees.
Like Joe at Joe's fruit stand said on Seinfeld to Kramer, you got a problem with a bad peach, take it up with God. He makes the peaches, I just sell the peaches.. Lol.
On the way home my truck starts to rattle underneath,in my mind it was a cracked flex plate. Put in my pole barn and put it on jack stands and start looking. It appears to be catalytic converter, today I will take it off and gut it and pit it back on.
After the truck it was beer time.
The farm I live on now is in the middle of the flat woods. I have multiple wells on the property. My house well was 150ft and it was very strong with sulfur and iron. The solution was to add a chlorine injector. The chlorine both neutralizes the sulfur and converts the iron to rust. The chlorinated, rusted, water is then ran thru a filter that removes both the chlorine and the rust (both thru a gradient and thru carbon). The filter backwashes itself every couple of days. The water tastes pretty good after that.
Recently we moved the house water to a deeper well (280ft). The sulfur isn't there but the iron still is. The chlorinator works just as well on the iron alone. The water out of the deeper well has a sweet taste right out of the well (besides the iron) and after the chlorine injection and filtration the sweetness remains.
