I got to have one. Question is. does it really make a difference if it is down below. next to the input to the bladder tank or in a main floor location? 20 ft or so away? I already know there is a cost factor involved. Also, had a pipe break this week and got silt in all my lines. Is this something that will just have to work itself out after a filter is installed?

Like Terry said, mine are on the output side of the pressure tank, not the well side.

I have two filters, plumbed in series. I put a coarse (30 or 50 micron) sediment filter in the first one, and then a finer filter (5 or 10 micron) in the second...I've found that they last quite a bit longer that way.

by the way...

don't be in a big hurry to have city water--it has chemicals in it, you pay for it, and it tastes lousy.

I usually put mine in the line beyond the tanks as it is usually easier, most likely a smaller line and when the filter stops up it does not put excessive pressure on the pump to cause problems and the low flow of water alerts you that it needs changed. Terry

i use the spun woven type and the pleated type filters, not much difference, never noticed the micron size difference, except you could dunk the pleated ones in acid to clean them out a few times. just have to rinse good and neutralize with baking soda before reinstall
