We have recently tapped a saltwater well. I need ideas for removing the bad stuff from the water. I understand the basic principals of anaerobic bacteria and their waste needing to be removed from the water.
Currently we have a tower right after the sump pump where air is injected into the water through a venturi much like a skimmer. The gases are allowed to escape and the water continues to a series of glass cubicles each with an air stone. The water travels through each cubicle consecutivly until it drains into the outdoor system.
Are we doing enough? The water seems much less stinky but I can still smell the sulfer just a bit. We are successfully keeping ricordia, zooanthids, and a couple fish in the system. But I still worry. Any ideas on how to further clean the well water would be much appreciated.
