How is the P-Trap Design Works?

The 1st P-Trap,Siphon was designed 200 years ago from a UK engineer. P-trap gets its name because its combines two 90 degree joints with a horizontal overflow pipe and gives the entire unit the shape of the letter “P.” One of the 90 degree joints exits the drain of the sink and then is joined to another which contains a water seal system that allows for water to flow into the overflow pipe, but not to flow backward toward the sink, so there are with anti-odor function.

It is this back flow prevention that prevents sewer gas from escaping into the house. Sewer gas can contain many noxious odors which at the least, . At the bottom of the “P” is a small cleanout tap that can be used to remove clogs.

P-trap Installation

Maybe you are not install more than three utility appliances onto one P-trap. This means if you have multiple sinks in a wash room, for instance, only three sinks can be attached to a line using one P-trap. The second rule is that any P-trap that is installed on a plumbing line that will infrequently be used should have a trap primer applied. A trap primer helps to keep the seal in place that will prevent the passage of sewer gas. In frequently used P-traps or ones in very dry climates risk having the water evaporate within that is necessary for the trap to work.
