My washing machine has been clogging the drain every couple of months, causing it to leak water on the floor. I want to put a filter on the discharge pipe to catch the dog hair and lint that are clogging the drain. It drains into a pipe, NOT a tub. Where can I get a filter and how much do they cost?

i see the filtrol 160 on the internet, but is there something that costs less than $150 that will work with a stand pipe or is this my only option?

The best filter has always been the old nylon stocking on the hose in the laundry tub.

You still need to watch it but it sure can hold alot of lint.

Safe plumbing brings life and health giving water into our homes, business, hospitals and takes away death and disease causing waste.

I have a newer GE profile top load washer and with a standard standpipe and I could not use this device. I had to replace my leach bed on my septic after only 10 yrs so I thought this would be a good idea. My stand pipe is only about 6 inches below the top of the washer so I had to mount the Filtrol 160 about 60" high to put the bottom discharge hose of the filtrol slightly above the stand pipe. The extra back pressure was causing a leak coming from the inside of the washer on the pump hose, which I was able to fix. But even after I got that fixed the water would come flooding back into the wash tub after the final spin cycle completed. Which of course soaked the clothes. I guess the pump can't handle the height of the Filtrol 160. The company I bought it from will not allow me to return it, so I'm out $150.00!! I think if you have a lower stand pipe or use a sink to drain your washer it would work. I would steer clear if you have a standard height drain pipe. My washer and dryer are in a small closet so putting a hole in the wall to lower the standpipe is not an option since there wouldn't be enough room to mount it anyway.

Bill is right on the money, the stocking works better then most products and the only draw back is one has to check it after each load
