A lot of knowledge about floor drains can be found on the Internet, but many families still have tragedies on this small object. The decoration is for a comfortable and convenient life. Many customers fail to communicate with the decoration master and cause the floor drain to be bought in a size and type that are not in line with their own sewers. It is a tragedy. Although the floor drain is small, it has a great impact on life! Don't make the floor drain a way for mosquitoes to breed in in the summer, and don't accumulate water under the feet of each shower, and it's not a white lady flooding the Golden Mountain Temple. So don't worry when decorating, and patiently reading today's article will definitely help your choice of floor drain.
Floor drains are divided into the following categories according to their types:
Type 1: Shallow water sealed floor drain
This kind of odor and insect resistance is not due to the presence of water, thereby achieving the purpose of mosquito isolation and deodorization. Simply put, there is water in the lower layer of the floor drain that is isolated from the upper layer of the floor drain. If you think about it, after a period of time, various impurities will hang on the bottom, which is difficult to clean and the water is slow to enter. If you don't use it for a long time, then deodorization and insect control are useless.
Type 2: Bounce floor drain
Manual control is closed, and it is difficult to clean up. For many lazy cancer patients, they can pass directly. The bounce is relying on a spring in the middle. It takes a long time to test the life of the hardware. This floor drain may be purchased only if Xiaobai is not familiar with it.
Type 3: Deep Water Sealed Floor Drain
In fact, the principle of deep water seal and shallow water seal is the same, but the water seal layer is increased by 7-8cm, so that the insect and odor prevention effect is greatly enhanced. The speed of such a floor drain is generally low, and it is not possible to prevent backfilling. There is a certain degree of cleaning up. Many businesses now recommend this type of floor drain, and also give customers experiments with quartz sand, but in reality, most of the accumulation in the floor drain is viscous and has strong adhesion. Even a deep-water floor drain cannot escape this shortcoming.
Tips: Students who purchase this type of floor drain should first check whether the height of their own sewer pipes can install this extended version of floor drain.
Type 4: T-type floor drain
The closed state of the baffle is changed by carrying the weight of water to realize opening and closing. This floor drain has a good anti-odor and insect-proof effect, and has a good filtering effect. The important thing is that the launch speed is fast, and it is also anti-backfilling. The disadvantage is that it is more troublesome to clean. After a long time, the spring loses its elasticity and the core needs to be replaced.
Type 5: gravity clamshell floor drain
The simplest and lowest cost structure, the flip cover is opened and closed by a gravity spring. The deodorant and insect control effects are pretty good. The only major drawback is that its launch speed is the slowest and slowest among several floor drains. Generally, T-type floor drains cannot be used due to problems with pipe diameter and depth.
Floor drain inner core material: Now the materials on the market can be divided into three categories: stainless steel floor drain, pvc floor drain and all copper floor drain.
1) Stainless steel floor drains are more popular because they have no plating and are durable in stamping.
2) PVC floor drain is cheap and prevents odor, but it is easy to cause aging and cracking of PVC due to cold weather;
3) All copper floor drains have a thick coating, which is also a good choice because stainless steel and copper are better corrosion resistant, but the price is not high.
So the question is which floor drain is the most suitable for your home? In fact, this problem is directly related to the height of the sewer pipe in your home. No matter how good the floor drain is, it cannot be installed because it does not meet the size. It is also useless. Generally speaking, there are three types:
1) The installation height is high enough (above 12cm): deepwater sealing floor drain can be considered
2) Moderate installation height (8 ~ 12cm): T-type floor drain is recommended
3) Low installation height (6 ~ 8cm): gravity clamshell floor drain is recommended
