      I know they have wee little traps you can buy at home depot but, you have to fill them up with water every time you use the dryer. I can go a long time without adding water. I put about a cup of bleach in the water so nothing starts to grow.. It has been working out great for the last 11/12 years...

      You have a great lint trap there, but ultimately, if you have a gas dryer you're venting the products of combustion into your home which isn't the healthiest thing to do. Especially if you have a tight house. With an electric dryer I don't think internal venting would be such a problem, except for the humidity you might be introducing to the house environment and fighting AC in the summer. (Although maybe your water trap also traps humidity as well?

        I realize what your saying but, it's not a gas dryer. With the metal duct on top that pushes away any moist air from the wall. Besides you need moisture in the air, makes it easier to breathe.
        As I was growing up we had two kerosene heaters, my Dad would put a pot of water on one to moisten the air....Obvious in the summer we did not have the heaters on...
        But I have had no issues after installing the duct...
