      Whole house traps are not installed now. I'd guess (and this is just a guess) the practice stopped in the 40's????????

      Check that!!!!
      I just remembered doing homes built in the 70's with whole house traps.

        how does that work with venting? here we have to vent the entire house so it matches the nominal size of the sewer exiting the building this helps with the city sewer.
