How to choose a Trap for Kitchen and Bathroom Sink

Check out here the different types of trap that exist in the market and choose which is the ideal for your sink and/or sink.


Corrugated Traps

These are characterized by their white color, easy installation and for being the cheaper choice on the market.

However, they require a greater cleaning since their accordion design retains food remains and sediment formation that can cause bad odors.

In addition, such food clutter can cause the material to degrade causing leakage below your kitchen and bathroom sink.







Rigid Traps           

As its name suggests, these traps are characterized by their rigid material (both inside and outside) that provides the assurance that water will flow without the remains of soap or food getting stuck.

Within this category you can choose from different materials such as chrome brass or rigid plastic (polypropylene).

Rigid brass traps are not recommended in narrow spaces because they are not easily adapted. In addition, since there is no standard size that meets the needs of each sink individually, its installation is often laborious, because of its difficulty in cutting the metal in uneven spaces. In many cases it requires a visit from your plumber for the installation.
