additional fuel filter

I recently got a dose of water in my fuel system and the factory seperator caught it just as it should. My only concern is over the next two tanks of fuel i had to drain seperator about 15 times. I would like to add an additional filter / seperator before the factory conditioner module and would appreciate some input as I am probably not the first to consider this. I am curious what others have used and where they mounted them.

Get an Airdog 100 and that will help a lot.
It will also help with your fuel psi.

I noticed on your signature you list 'head coolant lines', what's that about? I have decided to keep this truck for the forseeable future so would like to do some mods towards reliability. I have purchased but haven't installed an EGR delete kit and want to do headstuds, I don't have easy access to a hoist to pull cab so I have been deciding on an alternative method to do studs (possibly lift it a foot or two and block it??). One of the other mods that seems logical is the regulated fuel return that ITP offers. I was curious if the head coolant lines are along the same reasoning, i.e. reliability.

I had the head coolant lines done when I did the studs.
They sat that it helps with the hot spots in the heads and seeing that it can only be done when the heads are off I figured why not. Plus they are only $150.
I got them from Elite Diesel.
