Default Water rusting fixtures issue!

If you reference you will see a picture of a 2 year old drain. It was so badly corroded that when I went to remove it, it broke in half after all 4 of the spokes broke off. That's 2 years... The house is 25 years old and when I bought it I had to replace all of the valves in the house with new ones. I installed a water softener inside the last year, is there anything else I should do. The test strips say it's set "perfectly" but I still have hard water stains forming in my toilets and faucets...

I was wondering (more information = more paranoia)... I don't have central air so I can't check the coils but I wonder if it it could be the sulfur from all the new drywall (that previous owner & I have) put in. I worked on a project where out-gassing inside a cab from a seat cover was causing electronics to fail due to this same issue...

10/11: Bought the perfect house, 11/12: 10k & 200 hours,08/13: 30k & 400 hours into the perfect house, 12/13: 35k & 500 hours,02/14: 37k & 550 hours, 08/14: 38k & 650 hours
05/15: 40k & 700 hours and I think it's done, Home appraised +40k!!! 1 to 1 ratio achieved!
03/16: Filed small claims court on contractor for siding + all of previous
