Pottery Studio Sink Trap





Today I put on my Plumber's hat and finally finished my studio sink trap. It was very inexpensive and a lot like putting together a puzzle. I used a 6 gallon plastic waste basket, PVC sink fittings, so there's no cement & it's easy to detach, and a piece of rubber sheet, cut as a gasket to seal the joint. This little project's been on the back burner for quite some time. Needless to say, I'm feeling a sense of accomplishment today.

You post your smelly sink trap and then give me shit for the ingrown toenail!?

Emily, nice post with great pictures, thanks! If I only had a sink, I would do this too.

What are you planning to do to correct the odor that will develop?

I think it's a pretty keen idea and may just appropriate it when I set up my new studio next month.

Nice sink trap. It looks like it'll work very well. A little vinegar and/or baking soda should help keep odors at bay.

i'm going to wait until it gets very stinky, live with it, adjust and eventually, I expext not to notice it.

Numerous people are looking for one roach trap that works well. Finding traps that promise wonderful results is not a problem. They are everywhere in the market. The problem is that some of them do not work properly.
