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.

Will I just place my order for a 80,000 Grain water Softener for the house . So now I have 2 Big Blue's 20in whole filters {1 sediment and 1 10 micron charcoal filter} , water softener and and RO for drinking and frige. Some time I might get another RO for my fish tanks and maybe a holding tank to do water changes, going to wait another month before having to do another water test.

No chlorinator?

No chlorinator , My water system has been up and running for a couple of weeks , going to do a water test in about 2 months again to compare my test . My tank is not set-up yet , thinking of making a 2x4 pressure treated frame to put my stand on fig. I will use lag bolts to hold together if I can. Was thinking of re sanding and staining my Oak stand while I wait.
