Floor Drains

Floor Drains

Floor drains are plumbing fixtures installed in the floor of various spaces, particularly in areas prone to water accumulation, such as bathrooms, showers, kitchens, basements, and laundry rooms. The primary purpose of floor drains is to efficiently remove wastewater, spilled liquids, and excess water, preventing flooding, water damage, and maintaining proper hygiene.

Key points to understand about floor drains:

  1. Design and Structure:Floor drains consist of a drain body that is installed flush with the floor surface. The drain body typically includes a removable strainer or grate that prevents large debris from entering the drain pipe. The strainer can be removed for cleaning and maintenance.
  2. Location:Floor drains are strategically placed in areas where water accumulation is likely to occur. Common locations include bathrooms, showers, laundry rooms, garages, commercial kitchens, and basements.
  3. Function:When water or other liquids collect on the floor, they flow toward the floor drain and are guided into the drain pipe. The drain pipe then connects to the building’s plumbing system to carry the wastewater away.
  4. Types of Strainers and Grates:Floor drain strainers and grates come in various styles, materials, and patterns to suit different aesthetic preferences and usage requirements. Some are designed to handle high flow rates, while others may have smaller holes for fine debris.
  5. Trap Primer:Some floor drains include a trap primer, which automatically adds a small amount of water to the drain’s trap to prevent sewer gases from entering the space.
  6. Backflow Prevention:In certain settings, floor drains may incorporate backflow prevention devices to prevent contaminated water from flowing back into the drain.
  7. Material:Floor drains manufactured by Conex Metals are made from Stainless Steel or Brass. The material chosen should be resistant to corrosion and suitable for the specific application.

Floor drains play a significant role in maintaining a clean and functional environment by preventing water damage and promoting sanitation.
