DWV P-Traps

In many plumbing applications, the ability to trap gunk and debris within the system, so it can be easily removed, is important. This is what DWV PVC p-traps do. P-traps are an essential part of any home plumbing system. These p-traps are designed for drain, waste and vent system and are made with durable PVC material to provide a cost-effective and durable option for many applications.

A p-trap is typically installed under a sink. It provides an vital function to the plumbing and helps keep the home clean and safe. The p-trap will trap debris that drains from the sink so that it does not form a clog deeper within the plumbing system. It also prevents gases from the sewer from entering the home, helping the home to smell nice. The P-trap is made from two 90-degree joints with a horizontal overflow. This gives it the appearance of he letter "P." One end is connected to the sink and the other is connected to the sewer. In the mix is a water seal system that prevents water from flowing backwards toward the sink.

This back flow prevention creates a seal of water that helps keep sewer gas from entering the house. Sewer gas is a toxic gas that can be both poisonous and explosive, so keeping it out of the building is essential. The debris that is collected in the p-trap can make the water flow slowly. When that happens, the design allows for the trap to be removed and cleaned out, all while preventing costly clogs further in the system.

These DWV PVC p-traps are available in a range of sizes from 1 1/2 inches all the way to 12 inches to fit a wide range of needs, both commercial and residential. All are made from lightweight PVC that is more affordable than its metal counterpart. This means that they are a cost-effective way to protect a home or commercial building from the problems of clogs and sewer gases.
