In order to prevent unpleasant odors from entering the apartment, the sink's siphon is curved. The fact is that after the tap water is turned off, the drainage bend still exists. A water seal is formed, which also retains the smell of the sewer.
To date, there are several types of siphon under sinks that are marketed:
The bottling shape is similar to that of a flask in which water remains. It is equipped with an outlet connected to the sewer pipe. Overflow models help control the water level and do not overflow when the water supply is blocked. The siphon is most often used in bathrooms and kitchens to receive sinks.
Ripple - has the simplest design. In fact, this is just a ripple, more plastic, it can be given the correct shape.
Tubular is a compact device. Its assembly is done when there is not enough space available in the bathroom or shower.
The retractable metal siphon for the sink allows you to easily adjust the distance to the wall. Usually it has a chrome shell.
Flat - Set when there is insufficient space.
