Q. "Why are bottle traps illegal in many parts of the U.S.?"
A.Bottle traps rely on interior partitions for their trap seal. If that design fails due to corrosion, etc., sewer gas could enter the home. Because the internal component cannot be seen without taking the trap apart, there is no way to know if it's doing its job, so they were disallowed in most plumbing codes. Some municipalities allow them "special conditions", which is up to the inspector. We recommend checking with local code authorities to confirm your municipality's regulations on bottle traps before installation.
