I Live on a well and to be safe, I'm bringing in purified water from the grocer. Should I do the same thing with my sanitizer and use RO water instead of the well or will that not mater with the sanitizing solution?

Don't worry about the water you sanitize with. You only have to worry about the water you brew with. You'll be just fine with the well water.

I know you aren't using it, but I'll add that StarSan solutions (1 oz / 5 gallons) have a much longer shelf life if you use distilled/RO/DI water. I bought a gallon of distilled water for a buck at Walmart, I use that to fill my spray bottle with StarSan solution since I keep it around for months. For temporary StarSan solutions I just use tap water.
