This post isn't the most fascinating post to view or write but I think it's good information. You would be shocked to see the amount of lint going down your drain, washing newly woven cloth after taking it off the loom is an example. After moving into our house a couple of years ago we needed to have our drains cleaned out -- hadn't been done...ever! At least that's what the plumbers said and they seem to know their business. Anyway - at the suggestion of those same plumbers we began to drain the washing machine water through the sink next to the washer. We started to see the stuff that was going down the drain, especially after washing new woven cloth. A simple solution is saving our drains for the next 100 years, a Lint Trapper installed over the drain hole is keeping our drains healthier. LOOK!
