filtration of fine sand from shallow well
Posted by AR_Chef on June 02, 19100 at 14:18:53:
I have a submersible pump at 28' and would like to screen out the fine "sugar" sand which is tearing up my sprinkler heads. I've looked at "Y" strainers, but am not sure if the standard 20 mesh screen will be adequate. A large whole-house filter would work but would probably require very frequent and expensive cartridge replacement. What mesh or micron size should I be looking for if I use a strainer?
