Washing machines are a major cause of septic and drainfield failures.  With the cost to replace a septic system running $5000 to more than $20,000, the FILTROL-160 washing machine filter is cheap insurance to protect your wallet and your property.

A typical family will discharge enough lint down the drain every year to carpet a living room floor! 

These fine particles go right through the septic tank out to the drainfield where they plug the pores of the soil.  The FILTROL 160™ washing machine filter is a patented, re-usable filter that attaches to your washing machine discharge hose and removes the non-biodegradable fibers like polyester and nylon, sand, hair, and pet fur before they go down the drain and plug your septic system an drainpipes.

Installation & Maintenance of Your Filtrol-160™

The main things you will want to take into consideration when installing your Filtrol-160 washing machine filter will be:

  • Location - Install your Filtrol-160 near the washing machine. Discharge hose can be routed to a standpipe, wallbox or laundry tub (figures 1 & 2).
  • Attachment - When attaching bracket to the wall, using #14 panhead screws or 1/4 inch lag bolts (at least 2 inches long) with 1/4 inch flat washers is suggested. Screws should be driven into a stud (figure 3).
  • Cleaning - Frequency of cleaning the Filtrol-160 micron filter will depend on the types and amounts of materials being laundered.  In most cases the Filtrol-160 filter will need to be cleaned every 5 to 10 washloads, or ever 1-3 weeks. Clean filter often for best results by turning the bag inside out over a garbage container.  Tip:  After a few months use, empty the bag (put in a new filter in the canister) and launder with the next load of clothes.
  • Allow approximately 6 inches above the Filtrol-160 unit to be able to remove the top for filter cleaning.
  • Filtrol-160 must be above discharge point because it is a gravity filter.

Below are a few examples of Filtrol-160 typical installations; however, because not all laundry rooms are the same, you may have to modify your set-up.
