When you pump water out of a well, to water a lawn or garden you don't need to filter it. In your case, the two yard faucets don't need to have or use filtered water just to put on the ground again, or water plants. So the water filter should go up close to the house on the inside, where it won't have any chance to freeze. The basement is usually a good place. These water filters take different filters, some filtering out almost all the dirt etc.. the more they filter, the more they costs. The reason you are probably getting dirty water from the well, is the pump might be too close to the bottom of the well. It should be about 10 to 15 feet from the bottom to give you clean clear water. The next time you have to mess with the well you might want to raise it up a little bit. Also the water going to your well might be getting disturbed from construction in the area, causing the water to be dirty. Also a dry spell can give you dirty water. It will probably clear up at some point in time, so I would just keep an eye on it over the winter. Even if the well casing is rusted badly, the water should at some point clear for you. Remember each time you disturb the water line going to the pump, you will get dirty water for a couple of hours, to a couple of days... good luck hope that is helpful to you..tom
