I cannot comment on the effectiveness of carbon at low pressures, but I
can comment on the effectiveness if the drip emitters at low pressure. They
don't give the desired rate and worse do not yield an equitable rate at low
pressures. So your pump must be capable of developing 15-20 psig or thereabouts.
Many folks have disputed my need to warm the water. I remember Jose Castillo did
not worry about the cold water at the rates he was using when we visited his
place at a local meeting. However, I am doing short higher rate deliveries
rather than the very slow 24/7 delivery that he was doing. If you have a holding
barrel already set up, use a coil of tubing in that barrel to warm the tap
water. Removing chlorine by aeration will not work quickly with either
chloramine nor alkaline water conditions.
