Whole house water filteration+ UV?

I'm currently looking for water filtration options for our home that we just bought. It has well water and we noticed alot of sediments and also it just doesn't taste right. It tested positive for bacteria during the inspection and the sellers had to take care of this. They did and the second test came out clean.

I was reading about the pelican whole-house filter with UV but want to see what else is out there. Any suggestions or experience with this?

#1, Get the water tested again to see what type of treatment you really need before doing anything.
How long was that house empty before you bought it?

My well water is very hard, so we had it tested and got a Culligan softener. Because I was familiar with the UV technology in military water treatment applications, I put a UV purifier in even though I probably don't need it. Compared to other things, the unit was relatively inexpensive (like $300 or so).
