    The Green Drain Floor Drain Trap Seal   is a one way valve that keeps floor drain odors and drain pests underground. It is applied in floor drains, and water can still flow through the drain opening. It keeps them underground in a floor drain. If you have drain flies in other drain openings throughout the structure, you will want to apply the products in our Drain Fly Kit. For more tips on eradicating this insect, please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Drain Flies.

    Q
    Will the Green Drain Floor Drain Trap Seal block flood water from coming back up the drain?
    During heavy rains the ground water comes back up the drain and floods the basement floor. Will this valve block water, under slight pressure, from back flowing?
    A

    The Green Drain Floor Drain Trap Seal is a one way valve that keeps floor drain odors and drain pests underground. It is applied in floor drains, and water can still flow through the drain opening so it would not also prevent water coming back up which can push through the flapper.

    Q
    How do I measure my pipe to order the correct size Green Drain Floor Drain Trap Seal?
    A

    The Green Drain Floor Drain Trap Seal fits into either the inside of the floor drain body outlet connection or the throat of the strainer. You should measure the diameter of these parts to determine which size to order. The Green Drain Seal gaskets will flex up to 0.100 inches to fit into pipes. The chart on this flyer and these installation instructions have great pictures to help you determine if this seal will fit your needs.
