HELP! UPDATING my whole house water filtration system (really bad well water)

HI,
I need help updating my system.
Here is a summary of my well water:

PH: 8.5
Hardness 183 ppm (about 11)
Phosphate 2260 ppb
Iron: 0
Alkalinity: 349
Sulpher smell (rotten egg)
Tannin 0.6
cyanuric acid 2 ppm
TDS 460

I currently have 2 - 120 gallon holding tanks with a chlorinator to get rid of the sulphur smell, a sediment filter, a carbon filter and a Mark 89 as a water softner. (in order of water filtration) (all pipes are 3/4)

The Sediment filter control broke and the local company wants to charge me $2,500 (to replace the controler and rebed the three filters). The system is 11 years old and was a refurbished when first installed. (the last owners pad for this system)

I want to modernize my system and I was hoping at getting some professional nutural advice on this thread. Locally, I've received a lot of different advice and costs ranging from $2,500 (above) to $15,000.

I'm very handy and would do this myself.

Thanks for your help.

Company called Ohio Pure Water has helped me with my last two systems, Charlie is the owner and will take the time to review what you have, what you need.

I highly recommend them!!

PS, here is my current system, installed it myself 7 years ago, and probably have a little over $2K in components.

Anybody that tells you that you need $15K in equipment, they are total scam!
