The siphon prevents the penetration of foul odours, which can penetrate from the dirty water pipes into the inhabited areas of a house (especially wash basins, toilets, sinks and gullies) into sanitary objects such as toilets or wash basins. The water trap consists of an S-shaped pipe which is installed underneath the water inlet. There is water in the s-curve, which prevents malodorous gases from escaping from the sewage system into the building.
