You should NOT install anything in the line between the pump and the pressure tank that can be shut off or plug up. Many pumps are capable of creating very high pressures and there is (or should be) a pressure relief valve installed at the pressure tank. Installing a (for example) filter that can plug up between the pump and the pressure relief valve defeats the safety feature of the pressure relief valve.

The Sandmaster (Brand name) is designed to be installed between the pump and pressure tank because the design prevents clogging or plugging up.

How is the water getting into the storage tank?
Is it from a Well? The City? a Lake?
Hand dug well?

If you have that size of a tank, why not put it on a 1-2 degree grade and use the lowest point as a drain off of the sand from the bottom of the storage tank?

Using the storage tank as a settling tank would work the best.
Draining off the sand at the bottom once a year or so and no filters to change or do maintenance on.

Also you need to find out from the City if the water is starting off with that much sand or if there is problem with the city supply line in your area, ie a break and water getting out and dirt and sand getting in as that should be FIXED By the City.
