i sing the praises of the p-trap

it is at this late date in my travels that i would like to give a shout-out to a little something that we in the states like to call the p-trap.

it's a simple little piece of plumbing installed on the exit route of your drains, sinks, toilets, etc., the function of which is to stop noxious fumes from the sewage system from coming back up into to your house.

joni mitchell wasn't kidding when she sang you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone.
