how do I go about having well water tested for the different type of iron it contains. My well will run clear if it runs for a while but if you let it sit n a bucket for a while it will turn brown. I know it is iron but different types take different equipment to correct. Don't trust anybody who is trying to sell me something to test it for me for free.

There are a few Ohio EPA approved labs near Miami county. Test America Labs is near Dayton and Brookside lab in New Bremen are probably your closest approved labs. I have also included a link to a tool from OSU Extension that can help you interpret the findings you may get from those labs.
