The FILTROL-160™ is a patented, re-useable, in line filter that you attach to your washing machine discharge hose that protects your septic system and drain pipes from damages caused by lint. Discharge cleaner water from your washing machine and keep septic system soils from being clogged by laundry lint and fibers. Prolong the life of your septic system with the Filtrol-160.
The FILTROL-160™ washing machine lint filter comes with 6 feet of extra hose, clamps, fittings, and a mounting bracket for easy installation (you supply the 2 screws that hold the bracket on the wall). Most homeowners can install the Filtrol-160 in 10-15 minutes.
Non-biodegradable material fibers (polyester, nylon, and other synthetics) are a leading cause of plugged septic system drain fields, sewer pipes, and drains. Typical lint screens used with consumer washing machines and discharge hoses trap less than 5% of these particals. Did you know that even a new septic system can fail in as little as three years? This is primarily due to non-biodegradable material fibers plugging the soil in septic system drain fields.
The majority of lint fibers are very fine lightweight particles that stay in suspension in the septic tank. They then flow with the water out to the drainfield where they plug the pores of the soil. Over time, the soil can become so plugged with fibers that the drain field fails to allow the effluent to migrate through the soil. Then, the homeowner is faced with costly repairs. For homes connected to city sewer systems, these lint fibers are a leading cause of sewer pipe and drain clogs, which can cause flooding in laundry rooms and basements.
