The SureSeal Inline Trap Sealer offers a quick and affordable solution to blocking out the unwanted ghastly odors common to shower drains. Watch the brief Sure Seal benefits video below for a visual overview and then read more about its benefits in detail.

Sure Seal Shower Drain Odor Control Benefits

At a glance the SureSeal Inline Trap Sealer solves the problem of infrequently used drains by eliminating the need for a trap primer while keeping sewer gas emissions from entering your living or work area. It is much less expensive, much more effective, and much easier to maintain than a trap primer.

  • Health Benefits – It stops smelly sewer gases with bacteria and disease from leaking into your home.

  • Eco Benefits – This odor control device saves water.
  • Performance Benefits- It meets all plumbing code standards and doesn't restrict water flow.
