My next house rehab project is getting the sediment filter to work. It is also hooked to some kind of treatment system. For now, I have to keep the sediment from coming in because the grit is clogging our clothes washer supply lines and is a pain to clean. It’s probably clogging other stuff that don’t have filters.

And last, here is the label on the timer mechanism.
