PermaFLOW™ Self-Cleaning Drain and P-Trap Replacement is a patented drain system that prevents clogs and eliminates the need for chemical drain openers. Now, you can easily remove drain buildup before it develops into a clog. This new 'Green by Design' 4 in 1 multifunctional improvement fixture provides a commonsense tool to reduce the time, effort and money needed for property maintenance and has a positive influence in the best practices of Green building.
PermaFLOW is truly remarkable in that it has an in-line drain cleaner that operates using an easy to rotate external dial. The dial turns an internal wiper to remove any build-up and provides an emergency bypass for continuous flow through the upper chamber and better yet, helps retrieve accidentally dropped jewelry.
Unlike the common P-trap, PermaFLOW prevents clog build-up and eliminates the cumbersome work of those old fashioned "clean-out" traps of years past as well as the need for secondary maintenance products and processes such as frustrating drain disassembly, plunging, dangerous drain cleaners and snaking. This eliminates the related costs and personal safety concerns from storing and using chemical cleaners as well as the hazards of exposure to sewer gases.
PermaFLOW Drain offers a GREEN alternative. It safely ends the need for hazardous drain-clearing chemicals and the associated personal safety and environmental issues. Since these chemicals are no longer required, the quality of gray water is not compromised and is available for alternative use in efforts to recycle water. In geographic areas where the focus on conserving water resources has increased the use of low flow rate faucets, PermaFLOW facilitates removal of stagnant debris in the trap area thereby reducing downtime.
PermaFLOW carries a ten-year replacement warranty. Its transparency allows for easy viewing, so potential problems can be easily diagnosed and quickly solved. Fortunately, opening the drain to sewer gases and a messy cleanup is no longer necessary. PermaFLOW easily replaces new or existing traps and adapts to standard size drainage system in kitchen and bath sinks.
