Barberton, Ohio – JDI recently added an additional oil drain to its extensive line of fluid handling products – the JDI-18DC 18 Gallon Self-Evacuating Portable Oil Drain filling an industry need for a quality, mid-sized, economical product. The new drain is equipped with “Auto Check”, a user friendly feature found only on JohnDow Self-Evacuating oil drains. It eliminates the confusing procedure of opening and closing manual ball valves with its automatic pressure valve located at the bottom of the down tube and makes emptying the drain extremely cleaner, easier and more automatic.
