Maintenance and installation instructions for Stainless Team floor drains
Floor drains must be cleaned regularly to ensure its optimal performance. The frequency of cleaning depends on utilization rate of the drain and the quality of the drained water.
Floor drains are self-cleaning. However, if the water trap dries out, the drain might accumulate dirt that should be removed from the drain. In this case, use antibacterial detergent to clean the system and rinse the drain with plenty of water. Disinfectant detergent also prevents odor and dirt build-up. Detergents containing ammonia or other corrosive substances must be rinsed out of the drain immediately.
RST and acid-proof drain systems should not be left in contact with steel, iron or other rusting metals.
Floor drains with removable water trap
Grab the handle or the bottom of the water trap and lift the water trap up. The water trap may be tight if it has not been cleaned for a long time. When the water trap is open, the drain and the water trap can be easily cleaned. When installing a water trap back, ensure that the seal is in place at the top of the odor trap. To facilitate the installation, use a glidant (e.g. Uponor) or a soap solution.
Floor drains with fixed water trap
Make sure the water trap plug is placed correctly. The plug can be removed, for example, emptying the sediment container.
During the construction stage be aware of the following
In the process of construction, floor drains are exposed to adverse substances (cement dust, mortar and glue), which make it difficult to remove the water trap. Drains must be cleaned prior to commissioning. If possible, it is recommended to protect the water trap during floor screeding.
