About the MicroPlastics LUV-R Filter


Function

MicroPlastics LUV-R prevents septic system failure by removing lint and untreatable synthetic solids from washing machine discharge. The filter easily mounts under a cabinet or shelf, or to a wall, next to the washing machine. The washing machine discharge hose adapts to the inlet port of the MicroPlastics LUV-R. Discharge passes through the filter to the outlet port, leaving behind lint on the outside of the screen. A hose directs the filtered discharge from the outlet port into the washing machine drainpipe and on to the septic system. The clear filter bowl and drain hose allow you to see the filter in operation.

Cleaning

Once the filter bowl is visually obstructed by lint, it's time for cleaning. Cleaning is necessary every 2 - 3 loads of laundry. The filter bowl is easily lowered with a 1/8th counterclockwise turn. The stainless steel screen can then be lowered from the housing and removed from the filter bowl. Lint is removed from the outside of the screen and discarded. Once everything has been wiped clean, the screen can be placed back into the filter bowl, raised to the housing and pushed back into place. Rotate the bowl 1/8th turn clockwise and it will lock into place – a lock indicator mark shows that you've got it properly in place.
