Household-Type Water Filter Cleans Water As It Goes Into Sprayer Tank
I use a common household-type water filter to clean the water as it goes into my sprayer tank. The filter attaches to a 3-ft. high metal pipe stand. I made the stand by welding a 3-ft. long, 3/4-in. dia. steel pipe into the center of a 2-ft. dia. disc.
  I mounted a ball valve on the input side of the filter and attached a 6-ft. length of hose to it which hooks up to a valve on my house. I mounted an elbow fitting on the output side of the filter so I can hook a garden hose up to it to fill the sprayer tank. When I'm done I hang the hose on a pair of hooks at the top of the pipe.
  The filter removes rust and lime particles from the water so I don't have to clean out my sprayer nozzles nearly as often. I paid only $12 for it. These types of filters are widely available at hardware and farm supply stores. (Leonard Seltzer, 16040 W. Elwood Manhattan, Manhattan, Ill. 60442 ph 815 478-3578)
