Ordered a $16 “irrigation” filter with stainless steel debris filter, to attempt to rig a micro plastics and lint filter to my clothes washing machine outlet. This way, less micro plastics make it down the drain and into our water and environment. Will likely cost a bit more in plumbing parts to make it all work. Hoping that the filter has enough flow. Will report back.

Using gray water is not legal here so not even going to attempt to figure that out.

Letting it go through a filter and down the drain is much simpler.

@mathiasx it’s not legal? Is the water company operated by the mob?

@apg It’s one of those “if the health department finds out, you’re in trouble” things. Wouldn’t need a plumber to do it but also it’d be a bit complicated with a tank and pumps. Probably not worth it with my current urban house setup.
