What Is A Floor Trap Choke?
When you notice the foul smell coming from your floor trap and find the water overspilling from the trap, or while you are showering and realizing the water with no sign of lowering down, your floor trap is warning you of a trap choke inside! Floor trap choke is a common problem found in many households. Don't worry, let's take a look at the questions and answers listed below. Hopefully, they will guide you in the event of a floor trap choke.
Why Does Your Floor Trap Choke?
Obstruction By Grease Or Other Sediments
Similar to choked pipes, any grease or solid particle can cause trap choke. The fat and oil carelessly poured into the sink can accumulate over time and together with solid matter, they prevent the water from flowing freely. Many people seldom pay attention to what they flush into the trap until they encounter the worst situation-being unable to use their floor trap anymore. As a result, it is always necessary to take care of everything you are going to flush away, no matter you are in your bathroom, wash basin, or kitchen sinks.You are also encouraged to check your trap and pipe regularly. Try to clean the trap before the problem arrives right underneath your floor.
No Usage Of Toilet For An Extended Period Of Time
If you do not utilize the toilet for some time (for example, when you leave for an extended holiday), you may be highly surprised while opening the door of the bathroom. The foul smell from the floor trap may fill the room. What is going on here? The foul smell is an indicator of trap choke, due to the trapped foreign particles and the dirty liquid. Hence, you should try to flush and clean the trap. And also do not pour dirty water and improper objects into your toilet. Furthermore, please always remember to seal the trap before leaving for your holiday!

Important Component Of Plumbing System
As one of the essential sewer appurtenances in every house, floor trap plays a significant role in the plumbing system.
