I would like to add another solution to the one that Fred proposed for the pH issue.  I would use a calcite acid neutralizer to raise the pH rather than a chemical feed system.  A calcite system requires virtually no maintenance, other than adding new media about once every 1-2 years.  Fred's suggestion is very labor intensive, in comparison.  Here is what I am talking about:

Much better solution in my opinion.

Expertise

My field of expertise is in domestic water treatment. I am retired and have 28 years of experience in the water treatment field. I have earned the designation of Water Specialist, level five, from the Water Quality Association.I can offer help in the solution for private wells` problems as to `point of entry` and `point of use` treatments. these would include,disinfection,conditioning,and purification for drinking including reverse osmosis technology. Problems concerning well pumps,or plumbing or well drilling are out of my field,as well as commericial,industrial or municipal water treatment. I prefer to limit questions to the average homeowner`s use.Since retiring I have added consultation on the care and ,maintenance of domestic water treatment systems. These include filtration, conditioning/softening,chemical feed, and drinking water systems.

Experience
