Wrong Plumbing Trap

By Camrin Parnell | December 16, 2012 | No Comments




BLT was performing another Hamilton home inspection, a renovated older home ( flipper ) by contractors, however, the plumbing and venting were an issue. The venting of the kitchen sink was with an AAV or cheater vent, ok, there was a S trap, not good, and the trap was a Crown vented trap, not good. The implication being, water could be siphoned out of the trap and sewer gases could escape into the home environment. BLT mentioned to his client, a simple fix would be to re-orientate the drain lines to give the necessary distances to avoid the S trap and Crown vented trap, fairly simple.
