Had the same problem with the ground water well in my old house.  Even after filtering and other treatments it was still rather brown ( probably the same reason you mention as well, peat, or more accurately humin).  It also tasted a bit odd but was regularly tested and found to be of otherwise good quality. I had a gas still for drinking water which was a mess on and of course cost money for gas,  and the main vessel had to be cleaned regularly. Usually we bought large canisters of mineral water for drinking etc. This was actually cheaper than trying to use the well water. That was only used for bathing etc.

I had one of these for a while and it worked fine in summer but of course often dropped to very low or no output in winter;

You still need to boil the water before drinking it!

There were a few good construction plans for these on line but I no longer have the link to the one I built. It was quite cheap and very efficient.
