Microplastic Washing Machine FilterThe Filtrol uses a reusable mesh filter to stop microfiber pollution, removing non-biodegradable fibers (like microfibers, microplastics, polyester, nylon, sand, hair, and pet fur) from your washer’s discharge before they make their way into our lakes, streams, and drinking water.
UseCheck out this video to see the Filtrol in action. The main thing to take into consideration before getting a Filtrol will be the location. The Filtrol Lint Filter is approximately 15” tall, from the top fitting to the bottom, 9″ wide and projects about 8″ from the wall. You will not want to install the Filtrol under a low hanging cabinet. This could interfere with the removal of the filter for cleaning. For best results we suggest to have 12- 24 inches above the unit to be able to remove the canister from the wall mounted bracket, and still have proper drainage. If possible, the top of the Filtrol should not exceed 70 inches. For best draining results, the Filtrol unit should be installed above drain location to prevent water from becoming “airlocked” within the discharge hose. Discharge hose can be routed to a standpipe, laundry tub or wall box.
Paid install service is available in our service range. Please email a photo of your washing machine set up to firstname.lastname@example.org for pricing.
