What is a Trench Drain?

A trench drain is a specific type of floor drain that is all too often confused with a French drain. Trench drains have a dominant through-or channel-shaped body. If you want to drain surface water quickly this is the type of drain you should have installed. Industries also use this type of drain for the containment of utility lines or chemical spills.

A trench drain that is stainless steel is more commonly referred to as a channel drain. Stainless steel trench drains are popular in residential and commercial showers. If you’ve been to a trendy hotel you’ve probably seen a trench drain. They tend to be long and narrow, in stark contrast to typical small, circular drains.

Fast Food Debacle

My skills in the kitchen are severely limited, but with the job market like it is, the only place that I could find work was in the kitchen of a fast food restaurant. While this certainly wasn’t my dream job, at the time I was simply satisfied to have a job in any capacity. From my first day on the job, it was evident this wasn’t a career path I should pursue.

I started by burning a batch of fries and nearly setting the entire facility on fire. That was followed by spilling a five-gallon bucket of cola while trying to refill the machine. Lucky for me there was a stainless steel floor drain, so the sugary mixture didn’t flood the whole place, although it did take me hours to remove the sticky residue.

All That Money down the Drain


I regret to say that I didn’t do much in the way of a home inspection before purchasing my house. I fell in love with the location and the floor plan without digging deeper into the nitty-gritty details. The first problems came in the form of spotty electrical connections, and they cost me a significant amount of money. Other issues remained hidden until the spring rain began to fill our basement with water.

When a particularly nasty storm caused a power outage in my home, I went to the basement to look for a flashlight. I found myself standing in about four inches of standing water. It didn’t take long for me to do what the previous homeowner had neglected to take care of: I installed a pair of stainless floor drains in the basement. It took a bit of work because I had to rearrange the floor to make it slope in two places, but the benefits made this process worthwhile. I’m hoping that was the last of the unpleasant surprises associated with this house.
