I have white Chilton stone (from Chilton, WI) and beautiful Minnesota Field Stone in my nursery - garden. Was concerned using well water would stain the stones as happened to my neighbor. I called Culligan and they tested my water. I installed their system. Details
My well was 26 grains of hardness and iron content of 1 part per million. It takes 1/4 part per million to stain stones they told me.
I purchased a Culligan SM Twin Watersoftner. I use Potasium Chloride pellets that removes the minerals and iron. Have had no problem - on third year now. The pellets add up and the softner was about $1,900 but the potasium does help the plants. I have gold fish in my ponds and they do fine.
Hope this helps. Culligan does the testing for free. I was happy with their service and integrity.
