Filters are a crucial component of any irrigation system, yet often a detail overlooked or undervalued. Installing an irrigation filter on your drip irrigation system prevents clogging of emitters and reduces wear and tear on the system. Sand and organic materials are the primary objects you want to remove, and knowing which filter works best for each is essential. In addition, filters require minor maintenance, are relatively inexpensive, and help provide reliable use of drip irrigation season after season.
Selecting the correct filter for your system depends on what you are filtering out, and there are lots of choices when choosing a filter.
