2. Great product
"This is a wonderful invention! So far no clogged drains! Just turn the valve every so often and you sink should never clog! Love the design and the tight fit with the other plumbing- no leaks either!" readmore>>

Impact of low Flow Rates

Impact of Low Flow Rates:

Conventional drain systems are inefficient with more than 63% homeowners facing clogged drains once annually and more than 41% homeowners facing it twice annually. In the US alone over 1 Billion dollars are spent annually to deal with this issue and to keep the drains flowing.

  1. Global focus on reducing water usage by reducing flow rates is compounding drain problems. Additionally, ever increasing energy costs are driving the need for reducing energy consumption.

    • Estimated 8% of US Energy Consumption is directly linked to Water.
    • National Effort Focused on Water Conservation and Water Re-use to optimally manage the precious resource (before it becomes scarce like fossil fuels) has resulted in the need for efficient and effective drainage fixtures, both on the supply and drain side.
    • Extensive use of drain cleaning chemicals pollutes the gray water making it difficult to be re-used or recycled and results in thousands of people injured or poisoned annually.
    • Millions of people are exposed to hazardous sewer gases causing indoor air contamination resulting in sickness and inhalation injuries.

The above picture demonstrates the problem well showing the impact of reducing flow rates at the faucet or showerhead in the context of its ability to dispose the hairs and food debris. It is evident that the already inefficient conventional drain systems can only become clogged faster and more often as a result of the reduction in flow rates on the supply side and therefore there is a need to redesign other fixtures and pipes in the plumbing system to maintain drain efficiency.
