Decorative European Style P-traps - Bottle Traps
By Mountain Plumbing
Bottle traps (decorative lavatory traps) are used in applications where the plumbing is to be exposed and where a specific finish is desired to match the lavatory and tub/shower faucets. The selection of finishes ranges from basic chrome and polished brass to the now-popular weathered copper and oil rubbed bronze finishes that have swept the plumbing industry recently.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
