Pressure Regulator - Filter Sequence Question

I've seen a few forum threads that explain the inline sequence of regulators and filters.


I'm going to set up a two filter system for all incoming water into the coach.


My question is where to put the regulator in sequence with the filters.


I normally see users put the regulator inline before the filters.


But, since I'm interested in a fairly expensive adjustable regulator, with gauge, I'm thinking about the sequence of...

1) sediment filter first and then 2) the regulator.

This would help keep sediment from fouling the regulator.


Please let me know if putting the regulator after the sediment filters could cause issues with the filters not having a regulator before them.


Thanks!

The idea of putting the pressure regulator at the spigot is to protect your hoses. If that isn't a concern your sequence would work OK.

Are the filter housings pressure rated to whatever you expect to find?
You could use a higher quality regulator with a built in strainer or better yet start with a Y strainer then regulator then filters.

It can’t hurt to regulate pressure of everything with pressure. Can use a Y to allow unregulated wash hose and regulated potable water. Y, regulator on one side, house and filter at city water inlet.

Yes the pressure regulators are sensitive to debris in the water. The better ones have pre-filers in there but the more filtration the better. Main thing to worry about is plastic housings. Plastic housings are at risk of bursting if pressure gets over 100 psi. My water pressure coming from the road is 130 psi which will cause many things to fail from the pressure. I have a regulator for the house now. I also put the same regulator in my trailer. This is the one I have. https://www.amazon.com/Watts-0009257...gateway&sr=8-3
