House Trap

cast iron drain line with house trap

A house trap is usually something you usually see in older homes with cast iron drain lines. The purpose of a trap is to prevent sewer gases from backing up into the house. Some backups can be caused by a blockage in the house trap and may have little to do with the main sewer.

The problem with cast iron drain lines can typically be attributed to age. Cracks will typically form in cast iron drain lines especially in areas with large trees. When the cast iron starts to fail in an older home the house trap can be one of the first areas to create problems. Is some cases you can replace the house trap without having to replace the entire sewer by eliminating the house trap and replacing with pvc.
