Irrigation System

Im planning to install an irrigation system and need some information regarding pressure and filtration. I will be running the system off a well and bladder tank. The tank is currently set-up with a 30/50 switch (pump turns on at 30 PSI and off at 50 PSI). The water feed is polly. Im planning to use Rain Bird 5000 Series Rotors and 1800 Series Spray Heads. To complicate things, I have some sediment (I think rust) issues which cause clogging with my portal sprinklers. That said, Im planning to put a filtration system on the front end to mitigate and issues in my new irrigation system. My questions are...

1. Is my selection of Rain Bird a good one?
2. Is feed at 30/50 PSI adequate to run the system assuming I establish proper zones and number of heads?
3. Will the filtration system impact my pressure?
4. Are there any filtration systems out there that you recommend?
5. Any other ideas or thoughts are welcome

Thanks in advance!
