[Market-farming] Self Cleaning Irrigation Water Filters

Mark -

Last year we used those 'spin' filters that are supposed to be 
self-cleaning and self-flushing. We had lots of SILT in our water. I 
was fairly dissatisfied with the filtering and, frankly, they often 
clogged, which is just no good. I wound up going with a pool sand 
filter from Rain-flo. This, sad to say, only solved the problem of 
total clogging. I feel that this season I'll be adding the spin 
filters to the drip headers to keep the water 'more clear.' This 
means cleaning them before each irrigation session. (I'm thinking of 
getting a 2nd sand filter, which, I hope and pray, would totally 
solve my silt problem.)
