    Hi Everyone,

    Getting ready to replace my 12v water pump and noticed it has a screen filter between it and the fresh water tank. That got me thinking, we have a filter in the city water supply side, and the tank supply, but does anyone attach a screen filter on the hot water line after the hot water tank? I was thinking there is nothing stopping particulate or bits from the anode rod from leaving the hot water tank and going to the sink or shower.

    If anyone is using one, have you found any water flow restriction from just using a standard screen filter like one that attaches to the 12v water pump?

    A wye strainer is a commercial water pipe screen. A blowdown valve can be added.
    It’s overkill, but a cool idea.
