Potter's Sink Trap


This type of sink trap is easy to build and effective if you are sending clay or silt down your drains. Many potters use a trap similar to this in concept that uses a 3 or 5 gallon bucket, but the sturdy rectangular plastic boxes are much easier to get a good seal on. This is mucky stuff and you don't want your set up to leak. If you have questions, leave a comment and we'll try to help.

The "p" trap (it looks like a letter p) can be dropped lower if you use extend the down pipe an inch or two, use a regular elbow and extend the up pipe. You can't use a packaged trap. You will need to buy a length of pipe about a foot long and cut it to the lengths you need and an elbow along with a small can of pvc primer and cement. The pipe can be cut with a hacksaw. A little work but not that hard if you need or want a lower trap without lowering the depth of the clay trap.
