Read it again, he said the filters on the spray heads are clogged with dirt and sand.

I will turn the system back on with a nozzle removed and I will get a clump of dirt shoot out of the head. What can be done about this? Is there a filter that can be placed on the pump? What other suggestions do you have? Thanks
That pump must be sucking the a$$ out of that well to produce clumps of dirt. I'd still check the water at the pump before making major investments in the well when the problem could merely be dirt in the line.
