Hello, Re-reading this, ” So, water come in from well, to pressure tank, to Spin down filter, to water softner, to Carbon Filter to Water heater.”, it seems your system has a number of places where bacteria could grow. Any place where flow slows is a happy place for bacteria, so treating only one place may not solve the problem. I’d look at treating the whole system (shock the well?) and then consider a powered anode. And another thought… how warm does the water supply get? If it’s in the sun or warmed somehow, that could encourage bacterial growth too. :X

Yours, Larry
