    Not here, that's an s-trap and the trap isn't vented w/ those. When you fill the sink, likely after it drains you get a "glug,glug,glug" noise. It's siphoning the trap.

      That's what I thought. Wanted to be sure before I reported to my boss. Thanks.

        Will S-trap ever fail to trap?

        Or does enough water still remain in the trap to block sewer gasses?
        Thank you.
        I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

            I see those in a lot of the older houses in our area. Houses that did not originally have plumbing and were retro-fitted for it 50 years ago. I have a few in my rentals, they do not gurgle when they drain, and I haven't seen any problems with sewer gases. That said, in a rebuild or new application, they would not let you get away with it.
