World’s Greenest Building partners with PermaFLOW™

Independence, OR – Independence Station, expected to become the World’s Greenest Building based on the unique design and LEED points when it opens next year, is partnering with Houston’s PF Waterworks, maker of PermaFLOW Never Clog Drain. Incorporation of the self cleaning drain into Independence Station’s sustainable construction will contribute to the efficient use of water and the minimization of indoor chemicals and pollutants.

PermaFLOW is a transparent drain engineered to remove drain buildup before clogs develop. The drain eliminates the need for secondary maintenance products including dangerous drain cleaners. Compatible with environmentally friendly low-flow faucets supporting water conservation, PermaFLOW drains facilitate efficient removal of stagnant debris in the trap areas. With chemicals no longer required, waste water is also available for recycling. PermaFLOW Drain adapts to standard size drainage systems in kitchen and bath sinks and easily replaces p-traps in existing buildings while offering several unique benefits.

“PermaFLOW drains will eliminate the need for chemicals in the plumbing maintenance, making the World’s Greenest Building not only friendlier to the environment, but also to the people who will live, work and visit there,” said Steven Ribeiro, developer and owner of Aldeia, LLC.

“We are very proud to be associated with Independence Station. GreenSpec listed PermaFLOW is a multifunctional home improvement fixture that provides a commonsense tool to reduce the time, effort and money needed for property maintenance and has a positive influence in the best practices of Green building”, said Sanjay Ahuja, Vice President of PF WaterWorks.
