 Chrome drum trap?
Author: exapprentice30 (MA)

I went to a store that sell s used building material s and found a chromed brass drum trap with a curved side inlet on the side and the outlet on the top like a regular p trap. why is the inlet curved? Can t find any pictures or information on the trap. I have seen them on sink s in our middle school built in 1952.

The outlet has a nut connection on the top that your trap arm would connect to and the inlet has fine thread s.

They are for use in beauty parlors under the hair wash sinks. There is usually a "strainer grid" inside them.

Yes, and the grid can be removed and cleaned without losing the trap's water seal.

Zurn, Wade, Josam are 3 companies that make them. Clay traps are part of codes in a ARTS Room. Quite often after years of service the basket becomes rusted and falls apart, requiring a new bucket basket, with handle.
Knowing the brand of your trap is most important. Those inlets and outlets may be 2 inches or greater.

Best Wishes
