QM drains are made of 316 or 304 stainless steel depending on the Series. Stainless Steel is nonporous, hygienic, rust-free, and extremely durable. Keeping your home’s drains clean is an essential part of home maintenance duties.

When using your shower, all kinds of dirt like soap, shampoo, conditioner residues and hairs can quickly build up. Following the manufacture’s specific maintenance requirement is key to avoiding such buildup and in keeping your shower drain in the best possible shape.

A clean drain ensures that water will drain quickly and effectively and minimizes any risks of puddle or flood.
If you routinely clean your drain at least once a week, the process of maintaining for optimum performance will be easier. A well-maintained QM Drain product will last a lifetime in your shower.
