The HepvO valves promotes hygiene, particularly where a fixture is infrequently used. HepvO differs from conventional traps, which can dry out or hold water which can become stagnant causing the emission of smells and enhancing bacterial growth.
No “gurgling” noises
HepvO operates silently and is not subject to “gurgling” noises typically associated with siphonage and indicative of a breech in the water seal barrier.
HepvO allows discharge water to pass easily through, regardless of the volume.
Improves Venting to negative pressure
HepvO actively eliminates negative pressure within the waste system by opening and allowing in fresh air until a state of equilibrium with atmosphere is reached. It subsequently closes to reseal the waste system and prevent foul air release. This means that the venting of the waste system is improved. In many cases, on an RV for example, the inclusion of a branch air admittance valve is no longer necessary.
Copes with Food Waste
HepvO continues to perform when fats, solid foodstuffs, and other household materials are rinsed down the drain.
