Default Any filtration experts here?

This is a subject I find pretty interesting. Anyone here knowledgeable with filtration?

I am pretty solid on city water problems and solutions, chlorine and chloramine removal methods. City water problems like rubber and plastic degradation in the plumbing system from chlorine, and rubber, plastic and metal degradation from chloramines in the water. We have some municipalities that have manganese and iron bacteria issues as well (pink/orange slime in showers for iron bacteria, and black sludge at faucets from manganese. Activated carbon filter for chlorine, catalytic carbon for chloramine. Pretty basic.

Well water problems I am having a tougher time with. There is so much info to absorb. Hard water is pretty simple to test and solve with a softener. But there are so many other options for resin media based on what else is in the water, manganese with hardness, iron with hardness. Iron filtration only, green sand filters. And on and on. And then PH levels throw a wrench in all the ways to get rid of the different issues.

Very confusing, I don't feel right offering filtration options unless I am 100% sure that what I'm selling will work. This stuff is expensive!
