Handy Hint: March 25, 2011

Dishwater rack screens water

We always had problems with twine getting into sump pumps. We then started thinking of a way to make a sturdy filter that wouldn't easily clog but would catch the twine and other debris. When our dishwasher at home broke down, we got a new one, and we thought the tray from it could make an effective screen. So we cut the tray down to size and zip tied it to an old pitchfork. It works great!
