water softener/filter

I posted this the other day but didn't get many any good responses. I am asking this question to get a second or third opinion. My water tested .41 ppm for iron and 40 ppm (2.3 gr/gal) for hardness. My only concern is staining fixtures and clothes. Do you think this level will stian and any advice on softener and/or filter needed? Does a sand filter work on iron?
