P-Traps can be found at almost any fixture that drains water and are designed to prevent hazardous sewer gases from entering the building. A P-Trap is comprised of a curved “trap” called a J-Bend and a drain pipe called a Wall Bend. The Tailpiece on the Lavatory Drain fits into the P-Trap J-Bend, connecting to the Wall Bend, which then enters the wall. They are available with or without cleanout plugs. If one with a cleanout plug is installed it can be cleaned without removing and installing a new trap.
S-Traps are also used to prevent hazardous sewer gases from entering buildings, and are designed to drain into plumbing below the floor for installations where there is no access to plumbing directly behind the wall.
Because of their shape, J-Bends retain a small amount of water after the fixture’s use. This water in the trap creates a seal that prevents sewer gas from passing from the drain pipes back into the occupied space of a building or home.
Vanity Traps are P-Traps which feature an extra-long (15”) Wall Bend to accommodate deeper Vanity installations.

The patented Island Tub Drain™ Freestanding Tub Rough-In – A revolutionary product minimizing the time and effort required to install a freestanding bath. Available in ABS (ITD35), PVC (ITD5135) and Cast Iron (ID357), Island Tub Drain™ allows the DWV system to be pre-plumbed before making the connection between bath drain and the p-trap. This means no access panels required below the fixture! Island Tub Drain™ contains a positive action seal against the supplied tailpiece connection kit and is compatible with virtually all tubs. The bath drain connection is now accessible by simply lifting the bath. In addition, the asymmetrical deck plate is designed not to interfere with the floor mounted tub filler rough-in and features easy lock mortar setting for slab construction. Island Tub Drain™ is testable for new construction.
“Now I can install my tub at the Trim stage rather than the Rough-in stage – no more damaged tubs… My tiler is happy because he can even run his tiles under the tub rather than having to cut around – huge time saver!”
