RO/DI Units and Unchlorinated Water

From wetwebmedia:

"The RO's for home use are designed to work with chlorinated water. The chlorine in the water prevents bacterial buildup on the membrane. Keep in mind that a good RO system usually pushes water through a 1 to 5 micron cartridge before it enters the membrane. There are units available for unchlorinated water supplies."

First time I've seen something like this. Can anyone comment on the validity of the statement? Recommend units for private well water or relay experience with standard units and well water. The inference was that unchlorinated water with any bacteria population could clog membranes in as little as a few weeks. TIA.
