Waste drains and drain valves are used to provide affordable and reliable plumbing for the foodservice industry. They provide quick and easy interruption of the flow of water through your plumbing system. The lever twists to close or open the valve, and other drains valve open automatically when a set pressure is reached. Foodservice Superstore offers a great selection of waste drains from top name brands like Centaur, FMP, John Boos, T&S Brass, Fisher, and many more.
A drain valve works by using a hollow, cylindrical body and stem that sits perpendicular to the axis of the hollow portion. When the stem is open, the hollow portion allows water to flow freely through. When it is turned and shut, the stem closes the path though the body which effectively prevents the water from escaping. They are great for letting you stop water from flowing without having to reach your arm into the water. There are several styles of drain valves ranging in complexity, so we offer a wide variety of options for your foodservice establishment. The unique designs let you quickly service your sink. They are used in a variety of foodservice applications, but usually they are used in commercial sinks.
