A shower tray trap waste is a plumbing device that is used to collect and contain the water from a shower tray. It is typically made of PVC, and has a single outlet that is connected to a drainpipe. The trap collects water from the shower tray and then directs it out through the outlet. This helps to prevent water from backing up into the shower tray and causing any kind of water damage.
If you are fitting the outlet under the floorboards, you will need to ensure that the trap waste is securely fitted to the floorboards and sealed properly. If you are installing the trap above the floorboards, then you should make sure that the outlet is above the highest point of the floorboards, and that the trap waste is securely fitted to the wall and sealed properly.
Shower trays come with either a plastic or metal grill shower waste cover to ensure that the water drains properly. These covers are typically available in several colors, making it easy to match the style of the shower tray. For the best results, use a fast-flow shower tray trap waste. This type of trap waste is designed with a larger outlet, which allows for faster drainage of water. This helps to reduce the risk of water backing up into the shower tray and causing water damage.
Installation of shower trays is relatively straightforward, and can typically be completed in just a few hours with some basic DIY skills.
