Water Filtration

My wife has MDS.  She primarily suffers from chronic leukopenia due to neutropenia.  We are moving to an area that only has well water.  I am wondering if we need to filter the water for the whole house or only our drinking water.  Also, does anybody have a suggestion about what kind of filter would be best if we need to filter the whole house?

Hi there!

Filter for the entire house would not be required though filters for drinking water would definitely be required. I would recommend using double filters with mechanical/ porous and reverse osmosis and uv protection and if feasible using filtered and boiled water would be ideal.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
