The original Filtrol washing machine filter.  Wexco is the exclusive distributor for the patented Filtrol, the only true washing machine filter designed for washing machines on the market.


The Filtrol washing machine filter removes non-biodegradable fibers, such as microfibers and microplastics from your washing machine discharge. These are one of the leading cause of septic system and drainfield failure. It also is an effective tool for reducing sewer line plugging for those who are on city sewer and microfiber pollution in waterways. Wexco is the exclusive distributor for the patented Filtrol, the only true washing machine filter designed for washing machines on the market.

The Filtrol is a patented, re-useable 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 and drainpipes. Even Laundromats and government facilities are using the Filtrol.

This product is now being used by and/or recommended by · Universities · State Water Quality Agencies · Professional Contractors · Homeowners · Laundromats · Engineering and Consulting Firms · Entire Communities and Neighborhoods · Environmental Agencies · Mobile Home Parks · Some Government Agencies have stated "This product is long overdue" and would like to make the Filtrol a code requirement! Why? Because it works 


The Filtrol unit comes complete with the following:

  • Canister with O-ring
  • Lid
  • Wall Bracket
  • (1) Filter Bag (in unit)
  • Part Bag including:
  • (1) 3/4″ barbed x 1″ threaded elbow fitting, (1) 1″ barbed x 1″ threaded elbow fitting and (1) 3/4″ threaded x 1″ barbed straight fitting
  • (2) Hose clamps
  • Silicone grease
  • 5 feet of hose – 1″ I.D.


The main things you will want to take into consideration before ordering the Filtrol will be:

  • 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. You will need to have a minimum of 24 inches 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 72 inches. For best draining results, the Filtrol unit should be installed above drain location to prevent water from becoming airlocked within the drainhose.  Discharge hose can be routed to a standpipe, laundry tub or wall box. 
  • NOTE: Before purchase, we highly suggest to always check your washing machines manual to confirm the suggested drain height as the additional height of the unit (approximately 15") will need to be taken into consideration. Although most machines suggest drain location to be anywhere between 30"-96" from the ground, not all machines are the same. 


  • Discharge HoseIf existing discharge hose is brittle, split or damaged, it should be replaced. Be aware that some machines will discharge 2-3 cups of water when hose is removed. Note: Measure the inside diameter of your washing machines discharge hose to confirm which provided fitting you will use. The Filtrol will include both a 1" threaded x 1" barbed elbow and a 1" threaded x 3/4" barbed elbow to meet the most common drain hose sizes.  A Filtrol Connector Adapter Kit - 1" Threaded x 1 1/4" Barbed  is also available should you need that size. 
  • AttachmentWhen attaching bracket to the wall, screws should be driven into a stud . The Filtrol will become extremely heavy when it is full of water. If drilling into plaster or drywall and you can not locate a stud, expander bolts, or toggle bolts, should be used. Hint: First attach the bracket to a 3/4 inch thick piece of plywood, then attach the plywood to the wall.
  • Cleaning– Frequency of cleaning the filter will depend on the types and amounts of materials being laundered. In most cases the filter will need to be cleaned every 8-10+ wash loads. Clean filter often for best results.  Replacement filters must be hand washed, DO NOT put into washing machine to clean.  PLEASE NOTE: Use of fabric softeners or excessive amounts of laundry detergent can cause a slimy residue, restricting the filtering process and resulting in more frequent and thorough cleanings.

  • Detergents/Additives- For best results we suggest using minimal use of liquid laundry detergent, eco-friendly/natural if possible. Liquid detergents are less abrasive than powders. We do not suggest using any other additives or other cleaning agents if possible when using the Filtrol. 
  • Caution- Always unplug washing machine before moving it or performing any type of service. 
  • Returns, Policies & Warranties-  For more explanation on each of these topics, please go here.


• The Filtrol comes with a 90 day money back guarantee. If after using the Filtrol for 3 months, you don’t think it is protecting your system, send it back for a full refund (shipping fee's not included). • Filtrol units and/or parts purchased only from Wexco/SepticSafe are warranted for life to be free from material defects and workmanship. If for any reason you find a part(s) of your unit seem defective, please contact us at [email protected] or 888.983.2447 and we can assess the situation. Most people, after seeing how well it works, begin recommending it or giving them as gifts to their friends and neighbors, after all, the only thing worse than having a failed system is living next door to one. We have even received letters from people saying that after using this filter (and stopping the constant assault of material fibers) their sluggish and failed systems have started working again.

    Filtrol Lint Filter

    Posted by Tom Hill on 6th Aug 2021

    I have used the Lint Filter on my clothes washer since 2007. I am moving to Alaska and I have ordered a new Lint Filter to take and install . This product does exactly as advertised. The amount of lint collected from clothing is astonishing.

    We were looking for a something better then a sock at the end of our washers hose to keep the lint out of our septic system and drainfield. This thing is awesome it catches so much, perfect for septic owners!
