need a filter...

cheryllou(mid-Tn zone 6)May 8, 2008

The little blue sprinkler filters which are in the heads of each of my pop-ups are getting filled with sand & dirt each year. I have a Rainbird system. I am having to unscrew each nozzel each spring & replace the little filters. Tis is quite a chore for a 60 yr. old granny. Has anyone tried their new 'Quick check Basket Filter" or any other filter they sell? The dealership here sold me a Y shape filter with a metal mesh screen in it last year. It attaches to my main line from the pump but is not working at all. I do have a well. Can anyone suggest a solution?

That might work. You might have to clean it out less often. They sold you a filter for a drip system. What you need is a sand separator Lakos has a great one. Here is the link for Lakos http://www.lakos.com/products/Prod-SandMAX.htm
