A floor trap works by using gravity to pull waste and debris down into the trap. When water flows through the drain, it passes through the trap and is then funneled into the plumbing system.
A floor trap is important because it helps to prevent clogs and backups in the plumbing system. It also helps to prevent unpleasant odors from emanating from the drain.
To clean a floor trap, you will need to remove the cover and clean out any debris or waste that has accumulated inside. You can use a plunger or a snake tool to loosen any blockages and then flush the drain with hot water to remove any remaining debris.
Installing a floor trap can be a complex process, and it is typically recommended to hire a professional plumber to handle the installation. However, if you have experience with plumbing and feel confident in your abilities, you may be able to install a floor trap yourself.
