Default Whole house sediment filters

Get yourself a "Big Blue" filter housing, and matching cartridge in 5 micron
or larger in the extra large size of 4.5" x 20" so that you don't have to
change it frequently. Some of the sediment cartridges can be rinsed and
reused. Hit "Big Blue" on Google to find a good supplier.

Don't go for those tiny 1.5" x 8" cartridge housings, they will clog up in
no time if you have silt.

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?
