Basement Floor Drains in Tight Houses
Hey There Fellow Tradesman,
Wondering if anyone out there has discovered a good trick for dealing with basement floor drains in airtight homes. Typically, a standard P trap isn’t recommended for floor drains as they’re prone to filling with floor sweepings and difficult to clean out.
I hate the idea of air pouring into the basement every time the wind blows, or the range hood is used. Anyone found a good product or strategy for dealing with this?
