Find The Drain Strainer™ That’s The Perfect Fit For Your Commercial Kitchen
The first step in deciding which Drain Strainer model will work best for your commercial kitchen is determining how you’re planning on using it.
Talk Directly To Our Owner And Find Out Which Model You Need
If you want our white glove VIP concierge experience at no extra charge, simply contact our owner Brian Ash directly and we'll personally help you figure out which model of our food scrap collectors will work best for your commercial kitchen in three simple steps:
- Take a photo of the area where you're going to install your unit with your cell phone and email it to brian@TheDrainStrainer.com
- In your email, explain what problem you're trying to solve. Are you replacing a commercial garbage disposal? Trying to prevent your grease trap from getting clogged with food solids? The more details you can provide, the better our recommendations.
- You should also include a few measurements. What's the distance from the bottom of the sink bowl to the floor? Where is the water going when it comes out of The Drain Strainer™? Will it flow into a grease trap, a floor drain or a wall drain? If it's anything other than a floor drain, you'll need to let us know the height of the drain that you'll be tying into.
Once we see how your commercial dishroom is set up, how you're planning on using your Drain Strainer, and the heights for where the water will be coming into the unit and where the water needs to go when it comes out, we'll let you know which model would work best for your situation and why.

Commercial Garbage Disposal Replacement
If you’re replacing a commercial garbage disposal, then you’ll either want:
Both of these models have a universal Crown Adapter on the top that serves as a funnel to cover the hole once the commercial garbage disposal has been removed.
The box and the strainer drawer are the same size for both The Drain Strainer with Crown Adapter and The Drain Strainer XL. The only difference is that The Drain Strainer XL comes with a set of 6″ leg extensions for taller sinks.
Note: The Drain Strainer doesn't attach to the sink bowl. You simply adjust the legs to get your unit flush underneath the bottom of the sink.

Draining Multiple Sinks
If you have multiple sinks that you’d like to have drain into a single unit, then you will want:
This model sits lowest to the floor which makes it easier to tie a common drain from your 3 compartment sinks and have them all drain into the top of The Drain Strainer Compact.
Tying Into Taller Drains
If you don’t want your unit flush underneath the bottom of your sink, but you need the drain outlet coming out of the box to tie into a taller drain (ex: grease trap or wall drain) then you might need:

Replacing Your Commercial Garbage Disposal?
If you’re replacing your commercial garbage disposal with The Drain Strainer™ and are trying to decide which unit to order, the first thing you’ll need to do is measure what the distance will be from the floor to the bottom of your sink bowl once the disposal is removed.
That measurement is your "Sink Height".
