More Information on Bottle Traps:

All water using fixtures and appliances inside a house must have a water trap in the waste pipe to offer a water seal into the drains or air, this prevents smells, bacteria and insects entering the property. Most modern waste plumbing (apart from W.C.s) utilise either 32mm (1.25 inch) (for hand basins) or 40mm (1.5 inch) (for sinks, bathrooms, showers, dishwashers, washing machines) plastic pipe and fittings (including traps); pipe runs over 2m (6 feet) can use 50mm (2 inch) diameter pipe to avoid siphon effect once the waste is used.

The sizes quoted are the internal pipe dimensions (and also the waste outlet in the sink/basin/bath etc), the outer diameter of the pipework does vary between different producers thus pipes and fitting may not be interchangeable. One of the most important aspects of waste water traps is the thickness of seal. Typically the waste pipe fits to the trap by a screw coupling (with a compression seal ring) or a push fit'O' ring coupling - there is not much to pick between the two types.
