Well, I finally had my water tested since the new well, and of course it 
looks like I need some treatments. (Questions in BOLD)

First, I had a 'free water testing' done by a local plumbing chain.  They 
are the ones that gave me the test results.

Should I pay for a water test from a local lab to make sure they are just 
tell everyone their water is bad to sell systems?

Next, I had acidic water, 5.5 I believe (I had to wait to get the actual 
results), then I had hardwater (to be expected), and finally I had iron in 
the water.

The Iron I'm not worried about. (you can't see, or smell it.)

The hard water, I wanted to treat with an electronic system. Does anyone 
know if they work, or are they snake oil?

Finally, I have to install a system to neutralize the water.  Does anyone 
have any ideas on what I should do?

I plan to do the work myself, am I crazy?

Thanks in advance.
