That's one of the top reasons i use a 20" first sediment filter. Looks gross quick, but keeps working for a long time. As long as the one after looks ok and pressure Is good nothing to worry about
Yeah I’ve done plenty of plumbing work on my house. It’s grossYes, not abnormal.
It is interesting how clean the 1 micron filter is. Seems that most sediment is fairly large.
I always wondered about that.

Turn off the house water main, drain the water out of pipes, then turn it back on.
It is amazing how much sediment will come out of your pipes as you turn on sinks and so on.
