The Changing Role Of Floor Drains

Initially, the floor drain was used for drainage during the washing of floors, the emptying of old, gravity-drained washing machines, etc.

Now, however, with dry floor-cleaning techniques and washing machines that pump waste water directly into the drainage system, their role has changed. Today, they primarily serve as emergency drains. That is, they drain water that results from a water emergency due to an overflow, blockage, water appliance malfunction, etc.

However, emergency drains, by definition, are not used frequently and the requirement to use a trap primer severely restricts their usefulness. If we now think consciously about how drains can be used to limit the impact of water emergencies and we take advantage of the flexibility of location provided by Trap Guard, it opens up a whole new range of possibilities.

We have outlined just a few of these possibilities that you can review by clicking here.
