The HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve is a self sealing valve designed to close the waste connection below a sanitary fixture (your kitchen or galley sink for example) to prevent the escape of foul sewer air into the living space.

The HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve is the innovative hygienic Self Sealing Waste Valve. The HepvO BV1B/UB replaces the traditional water-seal trap and prevents the escape of foul sewer air from waste discharge systems. Unlike conventional waste traps, HepvO does not rely on trapped water to create a seal. Water seals are prone to failure by Evaporation, Siphonage and other Mechanisms. Instead, HepvO uses a self sealing membrane which performs the same function as a water seal trap but without the risk of depletion or freezing.

HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve actively eliminates negative pressure within the waste system by opening and allowing in fresh air until a state of equilibrium with atmosphere is reached. This means that secondary venting of the waste system via the inclusion of air admittance valves in the waste system is no longer necessary.

The HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve innovative hygienic self-sealing waste valve 1 1/2″ replaces the old p-trap and prevents the escape of foul grey water odors from your camper van waste tank. No siphonage, no noise, no smells! The unique dry sealing valve prevents the escape of those odors and eliminates the need for check vents. The The HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve reduces pipe length, allows multiple branch connections and increases flexibility in the location of fixtures.

Because HepvO is a waterless trap system, it performs successfully in RV’s and other moving vehicles where traps can lose their seal through movement and vibration. HepvO can be used in the following RV applications:

  • Sinks
  • Showers
  • Lavatories

The use of the HepvO waterless trap also avoids a problem of the water seal freezing, and evaporation of the water seal in warm weather or extended periods of non-use, which would lead to odors escaping the vehicle.

The HepvO is used instead of the P-Trap to protect the living space from foul odors from the grey water tank, black water tank or campground sewer system.

The HepvO valves promotes hygiene, particularly where a fixture is infrequently used. HepvO differs from conventional traps, which can dry out or hold water which can become stagnant causing the emission of smells and enhancing bacterial growth.

HepvO actively eliminates negative pressure within the waste system by opening and allowing in fresh air until a state of equilibrium with atmosphere is reached. It subsequently closes to reseal the waste system and prevent foul air release. This means that the venting of the waste system is improved.  In many cases, on an RV for example, the inclusion of a branch air admittance valve is no longer necessary.

HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve Installation:

HepvO can be installed vertically or horizontally, or any angle in-between. When installing horizontally a minimum allowable slope of 1/8” (3.175mm) per foot (30.48cm) must be maintained to ensure good drainage. This can be achieved by using the HepvO Angled Adapter supplied in the HepvO kit.

When installed at any angle other than vertically, the HepvO must have ‘ribs down’ to ensure correct drainage.

HepvO valves must be installed in the correct direction of flow which is clearly marked on the body of the product.

HepvO must be installed either immediately at the exit of each fixture, or in-line up to a maximum distance of 6ft from the exit of the fixture. Note that when used to protect a single fixture HepvO must always be installed upstream of any tees or branch connections to other waste pipes.

HepvO must be installed in an accessible location.

HepvO BV1B/UB 1 1/2″ Hygienic Self Sealing Waterless Waste Valve Cleaning:

No routine or seasonal maintenance is required for the HepvO sanitary waste valve, however, should you blow-out your drainage lines do not exceed 80-100 psi.

  • HepvO is resistant to standard caustic-based drain cleaners. It is also resistant to acid-based cleaners with concentrations up to 10%. When flushing with higher concentrations of acid based cleaner, the valve must be removed before the operation.
  • If mechanical drain cleaning devices are to be used it is necessary to first remove HepvO from the waste system. This provides a useful access point for servicing downstream pipework.
  • It is good practice to rinse the HepvO valve with clean water after any maintenance procedure.
