Is this an acceptable P-trap?

Is this an acceptable P-trap? If not why.

You know the answer, inspector Roy. :smile:

Can’t use corrugated drain piping. Drain piping must have a smooth interior to prevent clogging and maintain a smooth drainage system, aside from the other items that you can expound on.

Acceptable in Ohio, not a hazard.


Nope corrugated pipe and p traps under sinks should be made to remove easily for cleaning. I don’t think hose clamps with corrugated pipe will be found as an approved material and considered easily removed. Now connecting an appliance like a dishwasher hose to the DWV is a different matter but it’s also pumped.

Is the trap seal more than 4”?

Is is stamped with ANSI information?

Does it have a beaded shoulder with nut?

Is the manufactures name stamped on it?

It’s smooth walled on the inside Larry. It’s a pool hose.

The simple answer is it isn’t. Unapprove P-trap piping. I had my assistant with me today. And I asked him what’s wrong with it works as a P-trap. It ain’t leaking. So what should I write up?

I like it. If it gets plugged you can reach in and shake it. :wink:

Simon is correct!! and I will gladly start an argument with anyone about it! :joy:

Michael! Pleasure having you on the board again.

You know what you have inspector?
You have the parks syndrome. Much worse than the Coronavirus. Yep!


I never saw pool stuff up here. We use our lakes.

But, I bet that square 90 degree pipe stays nice and clean. :rofl: :crazy_face: :joy:

If you were filtering your swimming pool it would be fine. It is a pool filter hose. :rofl:

Is there a designation somewhere between acceptable and “what the heck were you thinking”?
