Tilt / Trench drain

Tilt
Tilt

Have you ever made a wry face because of a foul odor from the trench drain?
Have you ever dumped waste in the drain for your convenience?
Quite a few citizens have trouble dealing with an odor from the drain.
Trench drains are built for rainwater, but they often end up being litter receptacles.
Such littering turns out to cause a stench and even a flood.

Here's Tilt to block waste from flowing into the drain and causing odor and flood.
Tilt works on the 'leverage action'.
It is closed when it doesn't rain, and it opens depending on the amount of rainwater on rainy days.
Tilt is to make your life more pleasant.
