Plumbing Traps & Vents

In plumbing, a trap is a U-, S-, or J-shaped pipe located below or within a plumbing fixture that plays the important role of keeping sewer odors out of your property.  All plumbing fixtures – including sinks, tubs, and toilets – need a fully functional internal or external trap to prevent sewer gasses and dangerous bacteria from entering your home or business.  Most plumbing also includes an accompanying vent system to release these sewer gasses before they reach your home or business. Traps are a localized low-point in your plumbing system and tend to capture heavy objects (such as jewelry and other foreign objects) that fall and wash into the sink. Traps also tend to collect hair, soap scum, and other debris, slowing limiting the space and functionality of pipes over time.  Therefore, misalignment, cracking, clogs, or any other problem with your plumbing traps could not only result in nasty odors but a clogged or leaky pipe and property damage.
