Drain Seal

Drain Seal Header

Fernco Drain Seal is specifically designed to prevent odours entering properties/buildings from drains. The EPDM rubber valve, which can be simply retro fitted into a riser pipe, acts as a one way valve allowing waste water to exit the building whilst blocking the return of odours, soapy suds, insects etc.

The EPDM rubber seal is moulded and designed as an easy to use, self-cleansing, single component device, with the flexibility to allow even low flow rates of waste water through. Furthermore, it provides the benefit of increasing the effectiveness of the water trap it is installed above, by creating an airtight seal which reduces the rate of water loss.

Help prevent the spread of airborn viruses via drainage systems

Airborne viruses have the capability to travel through and spread via domestic drain pipes in homes, flats, commercial buildings, health centres etc. Authorities across the world have put evacuation measures in place during pandemics where people share residential apartment buildings and a person is showing early symptoms of an airborne virus.

Drain Seal by Fernco is an EPDM rubber valve that can be pushed straight into a 100mm waste pipe, allowing water to freely flow down the pipe and prevents toxins, odours and insects entering properties/buildings via waste pipes.

The Drain Seal helps protect people coming into contact with pathogens by creating a resistant barrier between the open drainage system and the atmosphere of a building.
