Drain Protector

About Drain Protector

It is a growing requirement among Water Authorities that commercial premises must install solids-screening devices with removable, perforated baskets and with secondary filters to prevent solid particles in wastewater escaping to drains. The requirements relate to both sink drains and floor drains - check the requirements in your area or ask us to.

In the “Downloads” area you will find leaflets and cut sheets for the DrainProtector range. 

Benefits of Drain Protector

The Eco Guardians DrainProtector range is divided into three categories – for sinks, floor drains and floor troughs - with every model carrying WSAA and WaterMark approval. In all cases, there is a removeable stainless steel basket with a fixed, secondary stainless steel screen below it as required by the regulations.

This double-screening filters solids greater than 3mm from the wastewater before it reaches the grease trap. This prevents the build up of rotting materials in the base of the grease trap which cause odours and eventually reduce the capacity of the grease trap and create a need for more frequent, costly pump-outs.

Where sharps or exposure to chemicals are an issue, the lever-operated DrainProtector models reduce the OH&S risks by avoiding the need for staff to reach into a sink to remove a plug.


The DrainProtector range is:
  • Watermarked. Certificate no. 23056 – see Certificate in “Downloads” 
  • WSAA Appraised. Report no. TWA1006
Brisbane City Council approves the use of DrainProtector floor models in bin-washing areas as an alternative to a below-grond grease trap. The certification is available in “Downloads”.
