Pesticide Removal

We have a private well and living in a farming area. My nutritionist tested our water and it's coming up with pesticides.  I'm very confused about all the different options of water filters - reverse osmosis doesn't seem to be effective for pesticide and chemical removal - can you recommend a reasonable option for us? Cost is a consideration -- but I want to try to fix this issue. Thank you!

Pesticides are organic based chemicals (VOCs) and activated carbon
should be very effective against it. Perhaps, because the pesticides
and other organics are very high, the carbon is having difficulty
adsorbing all the chemicals. You should probably consider a dual or
triple undersink filter, while utilizing 2-3 carbon filters within
the system. The B-2 filter will help remove organic and inorganic
chemicals, the Ultracarb filter will also be very effective against
pesticides, and choose a third specialty cartridge within it like the
CN-CP1 carbon block filter. This a slight custom configuration so you
would need to call and request this setup over the phone. The price
is $ 389.00 for the triple canister and $ 319.00 for
the dual Please
let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you.
