Different Types Of Traps For Drainage Used In A Building

Traps are components of drainage systems that are used in plumbing for the purpose of fluid, waste, gas, or insect prevention (retention). They are crucial for the sewage systems in all setups whether domestic or commercial. They stop waste materials from entering the sewage systems thus, preventing the occurrence of any illness or disease. They act as a barrier that stops water and insects to escape from the drain pipes into your homes. 

Waste, fluids, and insects get trapped inside the drain in small amounts. You can detach the traps from the drain, clean them, and reposition them as well. Besides all this, traps also help in any solid waste entering the drains. 

 However, present day traps are capable of self-cleaning. They are designed in such a way that the water flows at 

speed and drains away all the waste trapped inside them.
