I just moved into a new appartment in a new high rise in Southern
China. To my surprise I noticed that ****
there are no 's-traps'****
(='smell trap', 'grease traps, etc': the 's' or 'u' shaped
'contraptions' mounted under each sink and at the beginning of all the
drain lines. As far as I know they have to be used in al residential
constructions. The water also drains from the balconies in the same
way. The whole building, all 25 strories, are built this way.
To make sure I explain it clearly: all the drainage lines are connected
to- or go horizontally, straight to the vertical drainege lines, whih
their air escape to the roof! Only the toilet bowls have their built in
Is this an accpetable, sanitary, building practice? Is this done
because we are in a very hot, humid climate or I'm the victim of a
bulding mistake or even of a scam?
Prompt expert's advise is greatly appreciatted, as things are starting
to s(t)ink here!.
