12 June 2021

The floor drain is a filter in the drain hole in the bathroom which not only functions to filter dirt, but also the remnants of used laundry so that it doesn't clog the drain. But just like bathroom fixtures in general, the floor drain is also prone to damage.

Causes of floor drain damage include:

1. Clogged or clogged due to the large amount of garbage that failed to be sorted and entered the drain hole. Usually due to hair loss that accumulates and causes the floor drain to fail.

2. Broken due to hit by a hard object or because of a rat bite. Generally, this risk occurs in floor drains made of plastic.

3. Rust, making it difficult to filter water and residual dirt from the bathroom. Generally occurs in floor drains made of metal.

A damaged floor drain will cause many problems, such as a smelly bathroom, and clogged drains. Before the damage gets worse, immediately replace it with a new floor drain. You can replace it with a floor drain from Germany Brilliant which has many advantages, including:
