the filter is a 1 1/2" PVC filter. The specifications do not give an inlet/outlet I.D. the overview says to use 3/4" thru 1 1/4" PVC. Is this a type-O. Can I use a 1 1/2" PVC pipe?

Answer: 
when you pick up the filter from the store, get 1 1/2" male adapters and check for proper pipe size, you don't want to downsize the pipe due to restricting the flow.

Answer: 
Psw, this filter connects to your mainline (upstream of your irrigation valves). This filter has 1.5" MPT inlets on each side of the body. If you'd like us to walk you through the setup process, please feel free to contact our Support team at 1-800-488-6156. We'd be more than happy to help in any way we can. Thanks!

1-1/2 In. PVC Sediment Filter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! It's keeps all the sand and debris out of all your sprinkler heads so it's a huge advantage to install one! With that being said you do have to clean it because it will get green with algae and the other debris. Once a month I take it off and take off the 2 o-rings and fill it with bleach to kill the algae, I then wash it very well and fill it with vinegar to dissolve the scale/lime I then scrub the filter with an old tooth brush and it's as good as new. Also I suggest putting a dark sock over the filter housing this will help from the algae build up and also the UV rays from deteriorating the unit. It all sounds complicated but it's really not, it's much easier to clean 1 filter then go around cleaning all your sprinkler heads!! I have had this installed for 3+ years and it's working like it was the day I put it in! Attached is a pic of the unit after a fresh cleaning. I took 1 bar off for the "value" only because I feel like the price is kind of steep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very useful I really did not know i needed it but was recommended by a Hme depot associate. I had previously had issues with sediment closing sprinkler heads and would have to open and clean them. I connected this in line and see some small sediments already collected in the filter and it is easy to clean. good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product This is a very cleverly designed product and well worth the small cost. After adding a new water well, we were getting small sand sucked up into our pump, which fouled several attachments. This unit solved the problem instantly and easily. Quick installation, see through construction, everything required in the box, including teflon tape. Made in the USA is only another great perk. I have already recommended this product to friends.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replace O ring I bought this filter 4 years ago. Now the o ring needs replacement. I cannot find it in Home Depot and HF, recently I broke my 1 gal sprayer, and found sprayer's o ring fits perfectly. No more leaking water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed I have exactly the same unit on my sprinkler system. The plastic cover cracked after 15 yrs. I bought the unit and replaced the plastic cover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sediment Filter for landscape water system After laying new sod around newly built shop, installed a sprinkler system in soil and around top of chain link fence, so not to have to pull hose around to water. From a well water source, sediment was causing sprinkler heads and timer input screen to clog. Solution was to install a sediment filter in line with the well water. It's all automatic now!!
