I installed a new floor drain in my laundry room. As part of the
project I installed a trap seal primer on the cold water line to my
laundry tub. So far, so good.
The problem is that the trap seal primer (MIFAB MI-TSP-1) only sends
water to the drain once. The next time that I run the cold water - no
water is sent to the drain.
It seems that the poppet inside the trap seal primer does not re-seat
correctly after it has been asked to "work" for the first time. I
disassembled the device and have checked for debris that could be
causing problems and no debris was found. The piping from the trap
seal primer to the floor drain is OK, the device works OK - once, and
then it never works again until I remove the poppet from it, reseat it
and start all over.
Any ideas (could the steel pin on the poppet be slightly bent? Is the
steel pin supposed to point up or down into the small hole in the
primer, and so on...
Any advice, ideas and suggestions would be appreciated.
