        Do you have P-traps or S-traps throughout a residence or business on the greywater drainage (sink, shower) that goes to these boundary traps?

                Firstly thanks AFM for the guide mate I havent had a chance yet but Im sure this will work. Secondly I cannot get into the explanation to these Americans but I will say to all of you US folks this. Are you READY!!!!!!!!
                All fixtures be it a shower, basin, toilet etc have a trap directly connected to them. With exeption to a larger trap for floor wastes or dt's, where multiple fixtures can be connected under certain rules only. A lot of sewer systems here also have the (* BOUNDARY TRAP) at the connection to the sewer main.

                      Yes on all pre 1976 plumbing systems in Melbourne where I live and which are in the millions in Australia.

                      But since 1976 they modenised our plumbing system, where only one disconnection trap which is called an ORG (over flow relief gully) are needed and boundary traps were deleted in 1960.

                      But before then all pumbing fixtures had a individaul trap and then drained into a disconnector trap which was placed in the ground ontside the building line and then drained down the sewer pipe into a boundary trap which was connected directly to the main sewerage pipe at the boundary of the property and that is why it is called a boundary trap and a shaft was extended to ground level to vent to sewerage pipe and for access for cleaning a blockage.

                          Excuse the ignorance. Can anyone explain to me why one of these boundary traps or curb traps is a good idea? Sewer backup maybe, but it seems like a bad way to do things. Yank'em & put in a backwater valve?

                          Thanks.

                            Arn`t they nice Rick compared with the cheap plastic rubbish Ridgid puts on their equipment and then calls them wheels, I have the same on my K-1500 machine as it makes it a lot easer to move from one place to the other, you would think that the money we pay for Ridgid tools you would get the best but we in Australia we improvise we over come and swear till the kangaroos come home.

                              The white pvc trap in the back is a boundary trap as they don`t make them in earthenware anymore and the cast iron one in front is a disconnector trap.
                              The reason for having a boundary was early last century the powers to be were paranoid about sewer gasses getting into the house hold sewerage pipes and the boundary trap was the first line of defence it had a shaft extended to ground level and had a vent on it called a ground vent.

                                Running traps were, and are still used for a purpose. You boys need to go to school, or back to your union jobs where you'll have some sort of supervision...

                                Removing running traps is a no, no.... Hope ya'll don't kill someone..
