Booster pump install

instructions w/ the booster pump I ordered from you for my 75GPD said to install after sediment filter. Will this restrict flow to pump and cause any problems? I will be using a 5 micron sediment filter and have it hooked up to main water line using a 1/2" Tee + quarter turn ball valve.

Thanks!

No problem we recommend a 5 micron sediment filter and it should allow max. flow with no restriction. We do caution with small inline sediment filters as they can become clogged if you have a heavy sediment load. Full size 10" X 2 1/2" sediment filters work just fine.
