Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
  • Why Do I need ODORSTOP?


    Every sink pipes, floor drains, toilets and urinaries are connected to sanitary pipes that lead to sewer lines. As you often smell odor around sewer halls on the street, wastewater in sewer lines are not chemically treated yet. Whether you realize it or not, odor, gas and insects are constantly coming into your house through the pipes from sewer line. Of course, there's traps(J,P,U) to prevent odor, gas and insects. But don't you still smell odor anyways or see insects crawling in your sinks? Even worse, floor drains and urinaries don't have traps but go straight down to the sanitary pipes. That's why you need ODORSTOP under your sinks, on floor drains and maybe on urinaries.

  • What is sewer gas?


    Sewer gas is a complex mixture of toxic and non-toxic gases that can be present at varying levels depending upon the source. It is formed during the decay of household and industrial waste. Highly toxic components of sewer gas include hydrogen sulfide and ammonia.Sewer gas also contains methane, carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrous oxides. In addition, chlorine bleaches, industrial solvents, and gasoline are frequently present in municipal and privately owned-sewage treatment systems. (*Resource from Department of Health & Family Service in Wisconsin.)

  • How are people exposed to sewer gas?


    Sewer gas can enter a home through a floor drain, from a leaking or blocked plumbing roof vent, or (if the gases are in soil adjacent to the house) through cracks in foundations. (*Resource from Department of Health & Family Service in Wisconsin.)

  • What are sewer insects and germs?


    House centipede and pseudoscorpions are common insects you can find in basins and tubs. These are known to be harmless to people except for disgusting looks. There are harmful germs in raw sewage that cause diseases such as cholera, dysentery, hepatitis and gastroenteritis. (*Resource from Engineering Department-Sewer Maintenance Division in Amherst, New York.)

  • Where should I install ODORSTOP in my house?


    You can install ODORSTOP in drain pipes under kitchen sinks, bathroom basins, washing machine drain pipes, floor drains, and etc. Anywhere you think odor comes from, ODORSTOP can be installed.

  • How often do I have to replace ODORSTOP?


    Unlike other spray or powder types of odor repellent products, ODORSTOP lasts for a long time, so you can forget about it after you install it once.
