I've seen your problem in the field all to many times. Sounds from your post you put a in-line filtration system? What it sounds like to me is you have iron in your well, and the basic in-line filters are no match for iron. What I would recommend for you is investing in a Iron removal system. Theres many products out there today to treat your problem, ranging from chlorine, greensand, acid based resins, and many more. I recommend you to get your water tested, to see how many parts per million you may have, and other elements you need to filter. Then work off the analysis. If you need some good resources for testing places and products to suit your needs shoot me a pm and ill send them over.
