Flood-Guard operates like a check valve to seal off water back- up caused by overloaded sewers. Water flows normally through the drain until the sewer begins to back up. Then the Flood- Guard float rises to seal off the drain opening until the water recedes.

A screwdriver and a couple of minutes are all you need to install a Flood-Guard. Once in place, it can prevent property damage and a very messy clean-up job.

For extreme, extended pressure (for instance, where home- made seals have popped out of the line,) we recommend our standpipe models. The 4″ Standpipe Flood-Guard is threaded to receive 1-1/2″ IPS pipe. On the 3″ model, the pipe is slipped through the rubber gasket before the screws are fully tightened.

Gaskets are made of molded rubber, and all metal parts are plated or stainless steel.

Success Stories

“Drain cleaning can be pretty messy, and you expect to see some nasty stuff,” he admits, “But imagine my surprise when my Super-Vee™ once snaked a Batman toy from a line. I still don’t know how I did it!”

John Comerford Jr Cleveland, OH

I offer a 30-day warranty on every drain-cleaning job, but I can’t give a warranty if I don’t do the job right, and I can’t do the job right if I don’t have the right tools. That’s why I run my whole company with General products, they enhance our professional image!
