Jay R. Smith 1340 Roof Drains and Overflow... When should you use it?
Here are some basic guidelines for using the Jay R. Smith 1340 roof drains and SCP sump pan:
- you have limited space between the roof and ceiling
- when the roof drain will not be accessible after installed, such as above a hard lid (drywall or plaster ceiling) or in a concrete deck.
- when you are working on a residential or light commercial project
- when you want a combination roof drain set up. That is, the primary and secondary (overflow) roof drains.
The dual Jay R. Smith 1340 roof drains have functionality and adaptability not found in any other flat roof drain systems!
The Jay R. Smith 1340 roof drains kit is intended to lower or sump two side outlet roof drains using model SCP sump pan. And, using the 2″ water dam, converts one of the drains to an overflow to comply with the plumbing code.
It is common to encounter a situation where there is limited space to install your roof drains between the ceiling and roof. To address this issue, the Jay R. Smith company, and all roof drain manufacturers, have forged the elbow or bend into the body of the roof drain bowl during the manufacturing process. This results in a lower profile roof drain that will fit a limited space.
