As long as you’re tinkering with the sink’s plumbing, consider installing a no-clog
drain system. The PermaFlow never-clog drain is engineered to eliminate the need for
secondary maintenance products and procedures such as plunging, dangerous drain
cleaners, messy drain disassembly, and associated health, safety and environmental
concerns. PermaFlow’s unique shape increases water turbulence to minimize routine
buildup. It is GreenSpec listed and has a patented, easy-turn wiper that acts as an
in-line drain cleaner and clears the clog to improve flow, reduce buildup and save water.
Since chemicals are not required, gray water can be used for recycling. PermaFlow is also
transparent for a quick diagnosis of potential problems. The wiper assists in locating and
retrieving valuables such as jewelry through the sink, and also provides a bypass option
for water flow through the upper chamber in case of emergency. For more information,
