A strainer (commonly known as floor drain cover or floor grating/grate) should always be used at all times to cover the floor drain.
Essentially a floor drain is a plumbing fixture installed in the floor and for the purpose of removing water area it. A floor drain usually comes in various shapes such as round, square or rectangular. Between 2 inches to 12 inches, most floor drains are 4 inches in diameter. Usually crafted from material such as metal or plastic, the gradient of the floor near a floor drain is usually sloped to let gravity do its job of draining the water around a floor drain.
