water pump/coolant filter

finally did a coolant flush and switched to the cat coolant last fall when i replaced my thermo housing. now my water pump is leaking. since i have to drain the coolant again should i add a coolant filter? are they necccessary when running the ec-1 coolant?

A coolant filter is just a good idea.
