In order for your basin to function properly, it needs a way to drain the water away when you're done using it. But a drain that goes straight down can also allow sewer gasses to come back up. That’s why traps are used; to trap and block any sewer gasses from entering your bathroom through the sink pipe. Bottle traps are a compact and space-saving way of creating that trap. They install between your basin and the wall where the pipe connects to the rest of your home’s plumbing. They conceal the bend in the pipe in an elegant "bottle", which is how it gets its name along with its stylish good looks. Bottle traps come in a wide range of different styles and finishes, just like the rest of your taps and fixtures in the bathroom. This way, you can coordinate your bathroom’s appearance right down to the smallest features, such as the trap. We carry high quality traps from companies such as Tre Mercati, Roper Rhodes, and Bristan. So whether your trap will be held in a cabinet or on display for all to see, you can rest assured that it will be the perfect addition to your bathroom design.
