A New Look at Drains

At a time when we see most designers concentrating on personal products, we have here InHo Lee who is concerned about the ways to improve public drains. His Filter Sewer is system that segregates trash (like leaves) from wet waste and allows drains to remain clog-free. The system also allows the authorities to place odor-removing (or absorbing) tablets, and keep the streets fragrant. Now the latter half may be a tall order to consider, but on the whole I think the idea is neat.

    Seems like a good idea. In the autumn, these would need cleaning every (rainy)day, though. That would cost a lot of man-hours, even though it is much easier to clean than regular street drains…

    Shame people don’t keep the streets neat, the city always has to do that job…

  • Dylan says:

    I think there should be something to allow it to swing open when its under great pressure. What happens if there is a flood for example? We don’t want all these clogged drains not allowing much water through. However if it was to swing open under the pressure of the water and thus allow the water through it would be much smarter.
    after all, drains are meant to drain water.
    Just my 2 cents.

  • Jonathan says:

    Or there could be an emergency drain placed a little higher like in your sink. This would ensure it didn’t swing open when an object lands on it and would ensure that the water could drain before overflowing.

  • Elphi says:

    If it’s to keep out debris, then wouldn’t a a leaf-catcher in the pool kind of design also work? This is a good design, but it looks expensive to have everywhere and after being clogged, it might not let in as much water.

    Ganz toll! Awesome.
    We have drains like that in Germany everywhere.
    Every few month people from the city come and clean the lower grid from leaves. And the buttom is not for folding. You have to lift it up, the whole lid.
    It becomes dirty and rusty, that is why there is no folding mechanism or anything. Just heavy steel.
    But its good, If your keys go down the drain, you just need two guys to lift up the cover.

    This is very good, good design,If something lost, we can easily find it.

  • People to facilitate their services, flexibility and immediate availability
    that offer these services because of the use every day. You can swing
    by the Ranger Compound now if you want some supplies, but there isn’t much
    worth getting. These type of companies work either in the form of a
    franchise or a licensed company.

  • When someone writes an article he/she retains the image of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    So that’s why this article is great. Thanks!

  • I think the admin of this web site is truly working hard for his web
    page, because here every data is quality based stuff.

  • Indeed with an expanded automotive industry has lead
    to a high demand for steel and rubber. Outsourcing in India has an advance application and
    quality to complete the projects and lessen the
    management load. The above article related on designing
    an official website would be crucial together thick audiences
    to avail your features. You intend to be sure that the
    premises itself offers sufficient safety (security alarms and
    access control for example) and that they allow you to
    employ your own locks. If there is an elevator in the building,
    let the property management know in advance that you
    and the movers will be using it during the move; this keeps
    everyone happy. If you want to save 100’s in the process then compare electricity
    prices on different electricity comparison sites.

    To overcome these hectic job professional cleaners must be hired as they would guide the work of moving in a very efficient and
    smooth way. And if people today had to wander miles to get to their desired destination, the creation of vehicles modified that and made life for individuals a little bit simple.
