    Recommendations for iron filter for garden hose

    I have a bit of iron in my well water and read that a filter thingy attached to a garden hose will take care of it. I see several listed on Amazon and wondered if anyone could recommend a good one?

    Here are a couple of links about DIY filters that have worked well for others:

    Ferrous Iron in spa water

    Secondary filter for iron

    Good luck and share what works for you!

    I'm not sure how effective it is yet but another user recommended this filter when we encountered brown water during our initial fill:
