Stop Seasonal Basement Flooding With Flood-Guard


Rough winters and warm springs can cause home flooding caused by heavy rains, snow melt and excessive ice jams. Prevent basement flooding and messy floors with the Flood-Guard™ from General Pipe Cleaners!

Available for 2″, 3″, and 4″ floor drains, 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 Flood-Guard. Once in place, it can prevent property damage and a very messy clean-up job. The Flood-Guard is also available in a stand pipe model for handling extreme, extended pressure. And it’s great for year-round inside flooding problems!
