Quick release coupler before filter bad idea?

This is for my 2nd drop, about 55 ft away. I thought I had a good idea putting a 3/8 hi flo coupler on top of the F88, so later I can quickly just take 2 bolts off and take the whole thing down to take apart the 4 small bolts to dissassamble and clean filter or have another duplicate cleaned & ready to put up, now thinking maybe this thought was just plain silly?

I'm worried Im messing with the air flow going from the 3/4" L copper pipe to a really small 1/4" with the npt fittings restricting just before the water seperator.




I can go directly from 3/4" to 1/2" right onto the HF filter like I plan to do on drop 1 like this for example.


Its missing the regulator since I'm using it on the Sharpe. Got one more coming just for another regulator on it. Couldn't beat $20 also to have a backup filter too.

Should I skip the quick release coupler before filter idea?

Cool, just needed some direction. Cant believe I thought myself a simple union wouldn't work. Was thinking once you loosen, you start tightening whats behind, I thought it be an added on inconvienient union piece in the way. I just need to go look at some more different unions

Well at least heres some pics of the progress, thanks to this site is where I picked up so much of the addicting info from. Heres where alot of you folks have helped me get to.
