You can never have too many filters but place them at the end of the pipe run before the plug in for the hose...

This is a picture of my temp setup - I'll still add an air-line dryer down the road when I build an outside shed for the compressor...

This is about 100 bucks worth of copper pipe and fittings with a 50' reel hose (Lowes not sure on price its about 4 years old), the filter/regulator is from HF about 30.00

My shop is 22x40 so the retractable hose reaches all corners easily.

Copper works better for condensing the water than galvanized pipe. IMHO
