(More customer reviews)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.

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 drainpipes 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 and locking strap.
