The filter screens are readily accessible for easy removal and cleaning. This line of filters includes a female hose thread inlet and male hose thread outlet.

Screen filters are the most common filters used in the irrigation industry and in most cases the least expensive. They are generally used as a backup for any type of drip irrigation installation and are mainly installed where the quality of water is good. Screen filters are excellent for removing hard particulates from water, such as sand and other small elements that are often found in city water. The screen filters are not suitable for removing organic materials such as algae, mold and slime. These non-solid materials tend to embed themselves into the screen material where they are very difficult to remove. In other cases they simply slide through the holes in the screen by temporarily deforming their shape. To clean the screen filters, unthread the cover, remove the screen and wash under stream of water.

Wonderful! Does it's job perfectly and has caught a LOT of debris that comes through my (supposedly clean) county water source!!!

Inexpensive filter for garden hose connection, works fine does not need to be cleaned very often with clean water source.

This is a good mainline filter but with my water conditions, I found it better to replace the 155 mesh green filter with the 120 mesh brown filter. Algae was clogging the original screens and dropping delivery pressure to the point of rendering it useless in a week. With 6 filters, cleaning them out became a chore but the 120 mesh did the trick.

Works well as far as the flitering goes, I guess, but the female fitting that screws onto the hose bib slipped off the filter, allowing water to gush on the ground. Nothing broke as far as I can tell, the threaded female part just slipped off the rest of the filter.
These are cheap enough, no biggie, but I'm glad I caught it, as I drip irrigate at night!
