Need Help Deciding Which Unit To Order?
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.
Replacing A Commercial Garbage Disposal – If you’re replacing a commercial garbage disposal, then you’ll either want the Drain Strainer with Crown Adapter or the Drain Strainer XL. Both of these models have a universal Crown Adapter on top that serves as a funnel to cover the hole once the commercial garbage disposal has been removed. Note that it doesn’t actually attach to the sink bowl, but you’ll adjust the legs to get your unit flush underneath the bottom of the sink.
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. See our Replacing Your Commercial Garbage Disposal table further down on this page to determine which unit you’ll need based on your sink height.
Draining Multiple Sinks – If you have multiple sinks that you’d like to have drain into a single unit, then you probably want the Drain Strainer Compact. 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 the Drain Strainer with Drain Plate.

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 the distance from the floor to the bottom of your sink bowl. That measurement is your “Sink Height“.
Sink Height > 19 3/8″ up to 24 3/8” – Order a Drain Strainer with Crown Adapter
Sink Height > 25 3/8″ up to 30 3/8″ – Order a Drain Strainer XL
