where are you located? what part of country?
if your in municipality chances are the health dept will test your water for free
university of georgia has one of the best water testing labs/programs that exists, look online for it and you can choose what you want water tested for and send your samples off, no need to chlorinate or get a uv system if you dont have to.

the pump inside pulls water from big tank to pressure tank. you said float switch outside, it turns pump on and off. pressure switch inside controls dayton pump to pressure tank.
those pumps can last many years. the one inside -that type pump the bearings in motor start to squeal, they can be replaced and will work for many more years. the pump seals can be replaced, dont touch them if you dont have to literally if you touch certain surfaces of seals with bare hands skin oils can cause problems.
if it works dont fix it. bad bladder in pressure tank can cause low water pressure and other problems like pump going on-off-on-off in quick succession. the only way to fix is to replace pressure tank.
there should be a bypass valve on top of softener. if you want to bypass it
