It would be interesting to see a water report now that the well has been in more constant use.
If the red film had time to build up, but is disappearing, perhaps the water was not being used much and the minerals had a chance to precipitate? And now that you are running more water it is dissolving those minerals and carrying them away.
Maybe there is not as high a mineral level as it seemed just looking at the plumbing.
