WATER PASS provides a simple yet clever solution to an age old problem— it is a filter for your sink that allows water to drain quickly even with food waste in the center well.

When the filter in a sink is filled with food waste, water does not go down easily. Stagnant water in a blocked sink causes several inconveniences; not only will it make dish washing more difficult, it will also cause bad odors and microorganisms which make for unhygienic kitchen environments.
CHALLENGES PRESENT OPPORTUNITIES
We designed within the WATER PASS filter a separate drain hole which helps to drain water even with the presence of food waste. Also, a double filter system helps to keep the inner food waste separate from outer water drain which will help to maintain a more hygienic kitchen environment by drying the food waste within an independent structure.
Easy to separate, easy to clean, hygienic kitchen environment
When the sink is filled with food waste, you can easily throw the waste away by lifting the inner filter using its handle. You can prevent bad odors from coming through by covering and collecting the water and blocking the drain hole.
The drying rate of food waste increases because the filtering system blocks water from flowing through the waste.
The outer filtering chamber blocks the water from flowing into the food waste filter which makes it dry and suppresses further propagation of bacteria.
