This course identifies and describes three available roof drain systems including siphonic drain systems. Siphonic theory is explored to better illustrate how siphonic roof drains uniquely operate and the many benefits siphonic drainage systems provide, including those directly related to sustainability. Participants also learn how to specify a siphonic roof drain system and are introduced to important rules for successful siphonic drain system design.

“Thanks to the companies , helping the markets to be developed . thanks Zurn ” - Osama, 12/19/2014

“This course provided essential design information not provided by other articles and courses with regard to siphonic drains and important "rules" governing the system's efficacy. My only disappointment about the course is the lack of labeling on various drain elements and components that correspond to the text and discussion provided. While a modic** of elements were noted, many essential parts were left to the imagination. Better noting would be helpful. Thank you.” - Andrea Clark, 11/16/2014

“Good and very informative seminar” - Charles L., 10/29/2014

“I have never used a siphonic roof drain system. This seminar was well detailed and interesting to me. The over all project/building cost savings for using this system is an attractive point, However, one must consider the cost (materials/installation) of this siphonic roof drain system vs that of the conventional roof drain system.” - Charles L., 10/29/2014
