HUROYAMA is a hair filter for bathroom drains. Clogging is nasty, but ignoring the problem is only going to make it worse. However, traditional drainer's one-dimensional design makes it easy for debris to build upon the surface level, blocking the entrance and causing water to flood.
Through HUROYAMA’s mountain peak design, water can still flow through freely while hair and debris can be caught from the bottom. As hair and bubble start building up from the bottom, water can still travel freely down the drain. The unique protrusion points on the rim direct the water flow in a spiral fashion, allowing water to efficiently pass through.
