Problem statement: The waste pipes from the wash basin are always flow in with several waste form kitchen preparation. Due to time consideration the pipe may comes through blockage and need blockage maintenance. Approach: This study presented an invention for early warning blockage detection for a kitchen waste water drain pipe. The waste water pipe some be connected through vertical pipe runs which are usually embedded in the wall. The Fast Waste Water Blockage Detection (FWABET) is to create early detection of a blocked waste water level at kitchen appliances means for quick action knowing fluid flow passing through detector and indicates sign and alarm. Results: User society and country will be benefited from FWABET such as restaurants, slaughters house, hotels, hospitals, building developers and plumbing contractors. It is the first invention in Malaysia and can be adapt as a part of building services requirements. Conclusion: It is concluded that by apply the FWABET’s, it may reduce the costs and time of blockage waste water blockage drainage maintenance operations.
