Those of you using house filters on your watering system,I mainly want to filter out rust what size micron filter works the best for irrigation, seems to be 5 microns for rust

Do you run products through the filters like seaweed and fertilizers?

Yes I have run a carbon filter on the inlet water and a mesh and disk style filters on my manifolds on the exit side before sprinkler heads. Yes I run products threw my water and yes I have to clean out screens and disks regularly

Disk and mesh filters usually catch 70 microns and larger,I was worried that a 5-10 micron would remove the goodies your trying to get to the patch

I use 2 1 micron filters before the fill valve on my tanks. I have high iron as well. 1 micron filters are supposedly suppose to filter out alot of the bacteria in your water.

I couldn't decide to filter before or after the tank, I figured if I got algae in the tank I would be better to filter after it. I cant pump 250 gallons through a 200 mesh screen without it plugging almost shut, due to rust
