Default Irrigation question

My lawn sprinklers are run on reclaimed or gray water - not fit for human consumption, half do-do water - and the sprinkler heads clog to hell and back about every 4-6 weeks.

I'm really tired of pulling the roughly 30 heads and cleaning them out (and breaking one or two every time in the process and replacing them).

Is there anything I can put inline before the pump - after the main shutoff - that can filter out the sand, silt and other sh*t that is blocking the heads? I'd much rather install one main filter, open the box it's in and replace or clean a filter element once a week than spend 4 hours once a month dicking with each head.
Anyone have any ideas or experiences with this?

For the record, yes, I've googled it. I just don't think the little dinky, 12-inch tall filters I've found will be able to filter the mass quantity of mess I get in the sprinkler system.

Probably gonna have to use a pool type filter. Not sure if a sand filter would allow enough flow, but would probably last longer than pleated filters.
