Clogged drain – what now?

Hair can quickly clog the shower and washbasin drains. A great way to resolve this is with a good old rubber suction cup or plunger, as it’s also known. This loosens the obstruction and flushes the remains into the sewage system.

Incidentally, ‘trap’ is the term the general public would generally use, whereas sanitary professionals call it a water seal. And that’s exactly what it’s designed to do: trap or seal away unpleasant odours and prevent them from getting into the bathroom. We present two of the best-known variants of the water seal in the form of the bottle trap and the space-saving tubular trap, as used in the bathroom washbasin or in the kitchen, for example.
