    This looks great. Are you having this system at the top of the property so the filtered water can be gravity fed? Have you thought about changing the MOV to a piloted check valve and setting the spring pressure equal to the overflow head pressure? This would eliminate expensive powered shutoff valves. Screening would remove anything large enough to clog the check. This would be easy to make and maintain. Just a thought.
