        I cleaned a floordrain like that once, it was a real pain in the *** had to use 1/4" cable and I had direct access to the top.

          Well done sir, must be an earlier version of a drum trap which I think are still made. I theory I believe it's supposed to be easier to retrieve things that may have fallen in, except that frozen plugs and that they are not easily accessible sort doesn't work to good.

            The house that I bought was built in 1950 and sill has that style trap on the kitchen sink only because I have not yet gotten around to changing it out. I think a lot of the older houses in this part of the city that have not yet had new kitchen remodels in still have them.

                bath tubs are the worst with drum traps.
                the only dumb question is the one that is not asked!
