Sweetfilter Washing Machine Filter Lint Trap Can Double The Life of Septic Tank Systems

Discharge water from a washing machine is laced with enough lint, hair, and non-biodegradable fibers to carpet your living room once a year. When it drains into a utility sink, the debris clogs the drain pipes and can destroy your septic tank leach field and treatment system. Our polyester bag traps lint before it enters the drain by fastening it over the end of the washer discharge hose. Replace it every 2-3 weeks or when bypass valve opens. Our LT-1 has a finer mesh to trap more fibers than any other filter tested. One package includes 1 lint trap with bypass valve to prevent washer pump damage or hose “blow-off” and locking zip tie strap.

Works OK but back to Nylons Ordered this filter product in hopes that it would attach better to our washing machine’s hose that drains into a stationary tub and is then pumped. We have had issues in the past with our pump getting clogged with lint and hair which leads to leaks. The product certainly traps lint but the issue was keeping the filter attached to the hose. The velcro attachments do not hold well and once they get wet they are even less effective. The picture shows an orange zip tie and white filter however we received gray velcro bands and a black cloth filter (which made it harder to see the lint when cleaning). I also found that the filter was not easy to clean, the lint just sticks too well. This means you will have to replace the filter often. We are back to using nylon socks and attach with zip ties or a strong rubberband. They are also much easier to clean and seem to last longer for us. I would not recommend this product but it may work better for you.

almost works too well This thing works so good I have to clean it out every week. It traps 100% of dog hair which in turn traps 100% of dirt, therefore clogging this guy weekly. Thus: If you are looking for something to just trap large items which may clog your drain, this isn’t for you. If you are looking for something to keep all residue from your drain, this is perfect.

Sweetfiler gets the job done The Sweetfilter Washing Machine Filter/Lint trap is pretty good. It basically gets the job done, though I’m still convinced there’s a much better design out there that hasn’t been exploited yet. The velcro strap that it comes with to tighten on to the tube from your washing machine doesn’t work for beans. You need to go with a hose clamp — which you can pick up at any hardware store (in the plumbing or automotive departments) — it’s the only thing that will reliably hold your sweetfilter on. This really should standard with the shipped out product.
