How to Remove Iron from Shallow Well

“Dear Sir,
I bought an old lake house with a shallow well.  Water is high in iron and you can smell it.  I'm debating filtering water versus digging a deeper well. I don’t know where to start, should I test the water first?  If so, what test do you recommend?
- Fred

Dear Fred,
As this is well water and you don’t currently have any filtration in place I’d recommend testing the water first so that we have a good understanding of the contaminant levels.
One particular kit comes to mind includes tests for Hydrogen Sulfide, Bacteria, along with many other contaminants as well.  This includes Free Shipping within the continental U.S. you along with shipping back to us!  A discount toward a system purchase is included as well.

Here is some additional information on this kit:
