Need advice for well water treatment

We just moved into our new house and have well water. Since it has a sulphur smell, the contractor had a chlorinator installed. I have several questions: How do we know how much chlorine to inject? The chlorinator has a dial with graduations from 0 to 10. When it was installed the installer set it on 3 and we noticed that the sulphur smell was gone but that we had a distince smell of chlorine. The local city checked our water and determined that , without chlorine, our water is safe so the only reason for the chlorine is to get rid of the sulphur smell. We have heard that too much chlorine is not good for you so, how do we gauge how much to add and how to calibrate the dial on the chlorinator?
Our system consists of a well that is 600 feet that is plumbed into the house into a pressure tank. The chlorinator is plumbed to inject the chlorine into the water before it goes into the pressure tank. That is all we have. We do not have a retention tank after the pressure tank. Any thoughts on that? Should we have one?
One person told me that we should not have any more than 1 ppm of chlorine in the water. Is there a test kit that will help us determine how much we have?
Any help will be appreciated.

You have the water tested by a reputable lab. Then a knowledgeable water treatment specialist can tell you exactly what you need and how much.

1. Water is safe at "0". 2. Clorine smell is objectionable at "3".
Duh! Try "1" or "2"!
