Strainer Basket to protect floor sinks from small particles

Stainless Steel Drain Strainer, fine mesh, w/ flange for 8.5" square Floor Sink Floor drains can be a life-saver in many areas of a restaurant, as numerous pieces of commercial kitchen equipment require a drain to prevent water from leaking all over the floor, creating a potentially hazardous workspace. However, Drain-Net has provided an answer to this issue with its 8 1/2” x 8 1/2” Stainless Steel Floor Drain Strainers (SLF-10). These drain strainers will allow water to flow freely into the drain while stopping the material that may otherwise clog the drain from getting into the plumbing, saving your business from additional maintenance costs and pipe repairs.

This drain strainer basket is a 7 1/2″ square so that it fits 8 1/2″ floor sinks.  It is 2″ tall.  It has an 11″ flange with handles for easy removal.  The fine mesh is ideal for straining small particles such as rice and seeds.

Top 10 Benefits for Preventative Plumbing at Your Restaurant

We realize that the idea of preventative plumbing is not always common place in the foodservice industry.  Many people have grown use to “reacting” to plumbing problems when they occur and just count it as a cost of doing business.  We are on a mission to change this approach.  Sometimes restaurant managers tell us “I see the benefit of your products, but I’m not sure the restaurant owner will want me to spend the money on an unfamiliar product.”  To help convince those doubters, we are providing you with a list of the Top Ten Benefits for Preventative Plumbing:

1. Fewer plumbing expenses because preventing drain clogs also mean less calls to a plumber for emergency repairs and drain line jetting.

2.  Prevent wet floors which are a common cause for slip and fall accidents. Restaurant owners decrease their liability and increase employee safety.

3.  Reduced risk of expensive repairs to piping and sewer lines which can result when bags, rags, large seeds, and other solid waste clog grease traps and pipes.

4.  Increase efficiency of grease trap do to reduced debris.

5. Lower risk to city fines for violating wastewater discharge compliance standards

6.  Reduce or eliminate drain flies which are attracted to the “gross stuff” that builds up in drains when not maintained.

7.  Increased employee productivity when they don’t have to handle flooded floors and emergency drain backups.

8.  Decreased frequency of grease trap servicing/pumping due to reduced solid waste in grease trap.

9.  Eliminate the need for chemical pipe cleaners which can be very harmful to the environment and dangerous for employees to handle.

10.  Reduce or eliminate repulsive odors that can occur when debris builds up inside of drain lines.
