Very (very) small particles in coolant + is using 10'' water filter a good idea?

Water Cooling - www.overclock.net
I am most likely being paranoid beyond belief but I could not find an answer. Just to be clear – particles (thousands+) can only be seen when I use strong LED flashlight (I cant not see them with no strong concentrated light) and only when the fluid is drained from loop and is stored in very thin plastic bottle (no, its not from bottle) – they could not be seen in reservoir (its thick acrylic alphacool bay res). They are (visually) like small dust particles and are suspended in liquid – they do not fall on the bottom of reservoir or plastic battle, they stay suspended in their place. I did try to flush all rads, even tried flushing some of the rads but these particles can be seen even after good rad wash (in distlled water). Another thing I can not take a photo of them because in photos they could not be seen – they are just THAT small (and numerous).

Coffee filter do nothing, they just go through them so me being me I thought maybie I can use normal water filter (like this one there are adapter to fit 10mm tube ) to try and filter them out (if that is even possible). Did anybody try to use them and is it a good idea to use them? I Have few spare pumps so I'm really only thinking about testing it in a loop of pump+rad+filter. Also I have seen people recommending to use 5 micron filter () but I can buy 1 micron filter or is 1 micron filter too restrictive for DDC pump? Thanks '); }
