Hi any ideas how to stop a shower trap sucking in air when the bath is emptied. The plumber a wile ago apparently put the shower and the bath on the same 2″ waste pipe then in to the 4″ stack. I think a separate pipe may be the only way out.
This shower waste trap is designed to be fitted through a 90mm shower tray hole. The waste trap is supplied with a foam washer.
When installed the top chrome disc cover can be removed. Water is drained around the edge of the chrome cover. Underneath the chrome cover sits a large basket that can collect hair and other debris. This basket is removable for easy emptying and cleaning.
The chrome covered dome cap is approximately 117mm in diameter. The distance from the top of the chrome disc to the bottom of the waste trap is 95mm. The waste outlet is designed for use with 40mm waste pipes.
The first mechanical shower, operated by a hand pump, was patented in England in 1767 by William Feetham, a maker from in London. His shower contraption used a pump to force the water into a vessel above the user's head and a chain would then be pulled to release the water from the vessel. Although the system dispensed with the servant labour of filling up and pouring out buckets of water, the showers failed to catch on with the rich as a method for piping hot water through the system was not available. The system would also recycle the same dirty water through every cycle.
The manufacturers of the shower tray recommend using a good quality sealant for sealing between the Shower waste trap and the shower tray, you must ensure you use a sealant that is suitable for this job such as plumbers gold.
