Stay Out / product

Stay Out

Stay Out uses a comb-structure around the drain to block debris such as hair from flowing into it. These debris would be kept on the surface of the drain but would not slow the water flow. Periodically remove the hairs collected on Stay Out to ensure a clean shower room. The drainage won’t be clogged up any more, and the sewer would also let out a sigh of relief. As everyone tries to keep the public environment clean, the water resource would be better protected.
