These are the only sump pans on the market totally designed to "sump" or lower cast iron roof drains. These sump pans were designed by a plumbing contractor to be a FAST, EASY, and COST EFFECTIVE alternative to constructing wooden sump boxes which has been the only "technology" used to sump a cast iron roof drain and has been the "standard" for the last 50 years. Until now. This archaic and labor intensive method has now been replaced by these high quality, laser fabricated, durable and recyclable metal sump pans.
Simple and fast to install. These are routinely used by the novice and professional alike. The pans fit between joists either 16" or 24" on center without modification and an underdeck clamp is not required*. Single drains take about 10 minutes to install and double roof drains about 20 minutes. (* consult local codes)
As the originator of these products, I designed each sump pan around both large and small diameter primary (main) and combination cast iron roof drains that are commonly available on the market. The sump pans accept bottom or side outlet roof drains without modifications to the pan or roof with the exception of model LCP. The roof drains are interchangeable between models LSP and LCP. All of the roof drain sump pans are equally adaptable to new construction and retrofit applications on wood, metal and concrete roofs.
I have each and every high quality roof drain sump pan fabricated of 18 gauge galvanized steel sheet metal on precision, state ot the art laser cutting equipment. This quality is beyond what is generally required of sheet metal products for construction and results in perfect fitment.
The roof drains used for this sump pan are the same as model LSP
Contractors can increase production and reduce labor costs. These roof drain pans and and their related flat roof drains can be installed in minutes rather than hours.
Likewise, architects and engineers can use this system as value engineering over using the old laborious and clumsy wood sump box system with their clients.
