Pop Down® Drain Education
What's Inside Your Drain
If you could easily remove a pop-up stopper, this is what you might see.
Rotting, noxious, unsanitary gunk: nasty.
The traditional pop-up drain is built to clog, by design. The "T" slots in the typical flange allow grime into the overflow. Just because it's "free" with a faucet doesn't mean you should recommend it.
Pop-up drains are unsanitary, difficult to clean and, most of the time, they don't work.
The solution to the pop-up issues are to disassemble the entire drain from below the sink and clean it –over and over, year after year.
What's Inside Your Drain
It's a lot of work to take apart and re-install a pop-up, as you can see to the left.
Look at the over-flow slots: the trapped, rotting sludge creates a noxious odor. It's virtually impossible to ever clean the sink's hidden over-flow as the entire drain needs to be fully removed and the overflow scrubbed. We see this over and over: folks pouring cleanser down their over-flows trying to stop the smell.
Additionaly, the lever that operates the stopper acts as a hair-hook. The drain begins to clog and slow from day one. The p-trap starts to choke, creating one more maintenance task.
