Default Whole house sediment filters

"Alexander SuperTramp" wrote in message
We live in Gilbert (phoenix) Arizona, we have a water softener, but we
have always gotten a brown ring in the washer tub, it looks just like the
dirt that is outside.
I was wondering if some type of in line sediment filter might help to
alleviate this, or if the micron rating would be to large( most I have
found are in the 10 micron range).
Should I put it in before the softener or after?

Looking to spend in the sub $100 range with filter that are in the 15-20
range and replaced every 6 months or so.
Any suggestions on filter type?

One thing I would suggest is that you look for a metal housing on whatever
you select. I had one of the plastic BORG specials for about 8 years before
it just cracked itself open one day.

By a stroke of good luck it chose to die on a weekend day and we heard the
spraying water. It might have been a major problem during the week.
