Do you have any of these problems dealing with stormwater in secondary containment?

  1. Wasting time manually draining stormwater?
  2. Forgetting to close drain valves?
  3. Hiring expensive vac trucks to haul and dispose of oily sheen water?
  4. Replacing existing, expensive filter valves that are clogged with sediment?
  5. Algae buildup inside containment?
  6. Frozen containment floors in the winter?

Fortunately there is a better way.  The Drainiac® Petroleum Filter Valve.

This secondary containment filtration kit includes everything that you need to drain your secondary containment:

  • Filters Oil & Fuel:  The Drainiac® Filter Valve allows stormwater to drain from your secondary containment, while effectively filtering oily sheen.
  • Captures Sediment:  The Drainiac® Pre-Filter System captures sediment before it clogs your expensive filter valve.
  • Prevents Spills:  The Drainiac® Filter Valve automatically swells up and shuts off.  Prevents a catastrophic oil or fuel spill from escaping your secondary containment.
  • Saves Money:  Eliminates the high cost to pump, haul and dispose of contaminated secondary containment water.
  • Minimize your “Headache Calls”:  No oil sheens outside containment.  No overflowing containment. No vac truck bozos.
  • Drains 4x Faster than other “similar” products.
  • Prevent Tripping Hazards:  400% smaller than “similar” products.
  • Lasts up to 10x Longer:  Pre-Filter System prevents system from prematurely clogging with silt, sediment and debris.

Flow Rate: While all other manufacturers measure their flow rates at a constant 2” head pressure, we measure ours based on what is happening in the real world.

  • 2” to 1” Head Pressure:  56.6 gal./hr.
  • 1” to 0” Head Pressure:  41.0 gal./hr.


  • Drainiac® Filter Valve:  3.5” Diameter x 5.5”L
  • Drainiac® HuskyFlex Pre-Filter Sheet:  16” x 30” per sheet
  • Drainiac® Silt Trap Socks:  3.5” x 1.5” x 24” per sock

Sold As:  Each

Inlet Fitting for Filter Valve:  2” Male NPT threaded adapter. We are happy to quote you on custom adapters based on your specific needs.

Cutoff Loss on Filter Valve:  Other manufacturers allow various amounts of petroleum to pass through their valves, before complete shut off.  The Drainiac® petroleum filter valve system is engineered to not allow any petroleum products to escape. Therefore, there is no loss.
