6,

 Are you thinking of using that filter inline between your day tank/bucket and the burner?

 If it was me I would screen/filter my waste oil before I put it in the day tank. I would think that after awhile of putting unfilter in the tank it would end up with a lot of sediment in the bottom of the tank.

 I would also use one of these to screen the oil as I poured it into the day tank and it's washable.

  I would also install a water separater inline from the tank to the burner.

You can't put it on the internet if it isn't true!

I was thinking of screening/filtering oil before or as it went in the bucket, this was going to be a belt and braces type extra filter, or do drip feed systems not need any extra filtering after the initial filter into bucket? never thought about the water trap, thanks.
