General Pipe Cleaners 3" Float Model Flood Guard

Flood-Guard operates like a check valve to seal off water back-up caused by overloaded sewers. Water flows normally through the drain until the sewer begins to backup. Then the Flood-Guard float rises to seal off the drain opening until the water recedes. A screwdriver and a couple of minutes are all you need to install a Flood-Guard. Once in place, it can prevent property damage and a very messy clean-up job. Gaskets are made of molded rubber, and all metal parts are plated or stainless steel.

Great Backflow Insurance

Your review: The design of this device is very simple yet should be very good in performing its intended function of preventing backflow through drains.

Pros: Simple design - easy to install. Be sure to pre-open the sealing ring to just fit into the pipe ID - this makes it much simpler to install.

Cons: Be careful to not let the device fall down the ppe you are trying to install it into. Tie a string to it just incase.

Your review: Works great, except that allen or hex head bolts might be easier to tighten. It takes quite a bit of downward pressure to keep a screw driver blade in the slot while you are trying to keep the entire unit from going down the drain.
