Valve choice for sediment prone well water?

Any recommendations for valves that would deal well with well-water containing a significant amount of iron (also some salt and possibly other sediments as well, but iron's the most prevalent).

I'm considering the Toro 250-series (250-06-04, specifically), but only because I was happy with them in my last system, and I didn't have any sediments to worry about then.

Anyone willing to offer some practical experience on dealing with sedimentary water?

Thanks in advance,

In my opinion the Rainbird PESB valves are a good fit.

This is a great solution. You will still need to put a filter on the well water coming in to the valves.
