If the Terrafil can remove the iron/iron bacteria, I'm all for that!
Just Googled "how to make Terrafil filter discs" and got this PDF link: Terrafil writeup
This looks hopeful!  It states that it can clean up to 15 ppm (parts per million).  My iron content is 10,600 ppb (parts per Billion) or 10.6 ppm.  I'm thinking of pumping into a smaller (20 gallon?) container (with a float switch) that is plumbed to a filter to fill my main holding tank.  Since my main tank will be in the 500 gallon range, the fact that a single (4" dia) disc can filter 1 liter per hour means I could get by with a couple 8 to 12" discs.

I only assume these Ferco's are also called no hub fittings .If so they have certainly made repairs or modification to cast iron drains more simple .

I will say this plumbing systems have certainly evolved over the years as have a lot of things
Ferco is just a brand they are no hub fittings. Around here Ferco was the first brand you could get.
