Here\'s a possible cause for many who rapidly get dirty water: the filter can be too powerfull.
The crud could be hauled in and then torn apart, it may be largely filtered, but it also blends in with the water, making it dirty.

Possible solutions are putting the filter higher or on its side.

This is just a warning out of experience.
