I tried the nylon sock & pipe clamp on the hose end (they break at the top)
The little steel mesh socks plug up in a week and still let 1/16 particles though

I found this Filtrol 160 washing machine lint Trap Very pricy but looks like it would work.

.....Anyone have a suggestion?

I might try out that filter Jeff. Not sure if it will be quite thorough enough.
I'll check out the cloth bird feeders too Punky, i've never seen one. Don't the old ladies look at you funny when you offer to buy their nylons?

Actually I tried them before. They stretch out, cover and plug the drain.
