HepvO is a self-sealing waste valve that can be installed as an alternative to a conventional water P-trap. HepvO is different to traditional P-traps as it uses a soft silicone rubber membrane to create a seal, instead of “trapped” water. HepvO can be installed vertically or horizontally and is available in 1¼” and 1½” dimensions. In line adaptors and angle adapters are available as part of the system.
HepvO is currently being widely used in North America including: Motor Homes, Tiny Houses, RVs, Campers, Boats, Yachts and Concession Trailers. It is also gaining widespread popularity as a reliable problem solver in residential and commercial plumbing installations especially in vacation homes, condos, cabins, guest bathrooms, bar sinks and all fixtures with low, intermittent or seasonal use.
Because HepvO is a waterless trap system, it performs successfully in RV’s and other moving vehicles where traps can lose their seal through movement and vibration. HepvO also doesn’t fail by freezing or evaporation – so there is no risk of foul odors entering the RV. Used throughout the RV – an ‘odor free’ coach can be achieved. A HepvO valve can replace the air admittance valve and clean out as well as a P-trap leading to simplified pipework and installation.
HepvO is great to use in situations of infrequent use such as holiday homes, guest bathroom and RV’s. Traditional P-traps can lose their seal via evaporation if not used for an extended period or in hot climates. This leads to foul odors escaping in the dwelling. As HepvO uses dry seal technology, it can’t fail due to evaporation. It is also can’t fail by freezing – so no ‘winterizing’ by draining down or adding antifreeze is required.
HepvO is a slimline design that can be fitted vertically or horizontally, maximising cupboard space. The slimline profile also makes it ideal to install horizontally (with angle adaptor) under the bath, without need to cut into the floor – often a problem with P-traps.
The HepvO valve is available in 1½” (BV1B/UB) and 1¼” (BV1B/UA) sizes. It is supplied in kit format which includes:
