Have the following citrus all with yellowing older leaves in south Florida, grown in pots, on deep well water.

Is this a common occurrence with buying citrus from Home Depot that's probably been on tons of fertilizer? Every citrus tree I have is slowing having yellow leaf veining and dropping the leaves but only on older leaves.

Your leaves are just old leaves being discarded by the tree. This is more or less a common experience this time of year.  A citrus leaf has a life span of approximately 18 months.  When a citrus leaf no longer can pull its weight, it is quickly discarded.  You don't have anything to worry about.
