We've had a number of questions about lint filters for clothes washers. There are reports that lint from washers can clog septic systems. The good news is that there are filters available to catch that lint before it gets into your septic system. These filters can be attached to the output hose of your washer and can be cleaned and reused.

While we are not in the business of recommending specific suppliers or retailers of products like this,  the only filter we have found to be available is called the FILTROL 160. If you go to Google  you will find a number of online suppliers. You may also be able to get these filters from local plumbers or plumber's supply houses.

Here's a photo of one of these filters installed.
