What Is a Bottle Trap and Why Do We Need It?

The bottle trap is an essential element of the basin's plumbing that keeps the bathroom hygienic and odor-free. When we use the basin, the used water goes down the basin waste, into the drainage pipe, and then into the sewer, where a lot of other waste and dirt is accumulating. Naturally, that accumulation involves a lot of nasty and potentially harmful gases. What is there to prevent those foul smells from flowing back up through our drainage pipes, through the wastes, and back into our bathrooms? This is what a waste trap (bottle trap, P trap, or U bend) is for.

How Does a Bottle Trap Work?

It is a vessel which has a bigger diameter than the plumbing pipe that comes from the basin. When water gushes down, this vessel fills with the new water. Thus, the bottle trap always remains filled with a certain amount of water.

When the sewer gases waft up the system through the outlet pipes, they reach the bottle trap, but here they find their way sealed with the water that has collected in the bottle trap. The passage remains closed and doesnt allow the return waste and gases to enter.
