The public drain will not plug into this pipe. The surface of an ordinary floor drain is a hollow metal plate. The sewage flows directly into the floor drain through the terrain inclination and then is discharged through the hollow surface of the floor drain. Except for this special drainage pipe for sewage, the appearance of the floor drain of the washing machine is not much different from that of the ordinary floor drain, and the raw materials are generally metal materials.

There are also differences in the use characteristics of washing machine floor drains and ordinary floor drains. As a special purpose of washing machine floor drain, it is not suitable for any other place except washing machine drainage, while ordinary floor drain can be widely used in various types of drainage, mainly washing machine floor drain and ordinary floor drain.
