We provide a wide and comprehensive range of waste traps, including anti-siphon units and under sink traps, to match applications from bathrooms to wet rooms and kitchen sinks to washing machines. All water using fixtures and appliances within a house needs a water trap in the waste pipe to offer a water seal into the drains or atmosphere, this prevents smells, bacteria and insects entering the property.
Most modern waste plumbing (besides W.C.s) use either 32mm (1.25 inch) (for hand basins) or 40mm (1.5 inch) (such as 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 prevent siphon effect once the waste is utilised. 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 change between different producers thus pipes and fitting may not be interchangeable. One of the most important facets of waste water traps is the depth of seal. Typically the waste pipe matches to the trap by a twist coupling (with a compression seal ring) or a push fit 'O' ring coupling - there is not much to pick between the two types.
