Installing inline fresh water Filter

Just picked up a 10" in-line fresh water clear plastic canister unit (with a seperate 20micron filter). This may be a stupid question - is this installed between the pump and preasure tank (Grcoco PST1) or after, and if after can it be plumed so it filters the water to all 3 showers and 3 sinks....or only for the galley sink?. All thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

Preasure runs at about 20 to 30 psi at the presure tank.

You can put it after the pump but before anything else so it filters all the water if you wish. But I don't think you have to filter the hot water. I would probably install it in the cold line which is what you'd drink. In this case it would go in the line after the pump that T's to the cold water side avoiding the water heater. This way all the drinking water will be filtered.
