Anti-Syphon Trap advice?


Postby hamertime » Tue Nov 11, 2008 11:13 pm

Hello,

I have had a problem with my kitchen sink whereby at random times a stench seems to appear, it becomes so bad sometimes we actually have to leave the room. Its weird as the smell just seems to appear from nowhere then it goes after a few hours.

It is a newly built flat on the 8th floor of a high rise block and the sink has a U bend, I have spoken to a plumber on the phone and he seems to think that a Anti-Syphon Trap should resolve the problem. Do you think this will solve the problem?

The problem is I have no idea about plumbing so wondered if anyone can offer me any advice, basically the questions I need answering are below:

• What sort of Anti-Syphon Trap do I need? Can anyone show me a picture.
• How would I go about fitting it and exactly where does it attach too?

Anyway any advice would be most appreciated, so thanks a lot in advance guys.

:lol: :lol:

Thanks retrostew, I've just bought a Hep VO anti siphon trap.

Can you advice me as to where it needs to be fiited too exactly? i.e. is it inbetween the U bend and the sink or do you fit it after the U bend?

Thanks in advance :lol:
