What Is a Bottle Trap?
The bottle trap is an essential element of the basin's plumbing that keeps the bathroom hygienic and odor-free. When we use the basin, the used water goes down the basin waste, into the drainage pipe, and then into the sewer, where a lot of other waste and dirt is accumulating. Naturally, that accumulation involves a lot of nasty and potentially harmful gases. What is there to prevent those foul smells from flowing back up through our drainage pipes, through the wastes, and back into our bathrooms? This is what a waste trap (bottle trap, P trap, or U bend) is for.
We need those traps to prevent gases from contaminating bathrooms, thus helping maintain hygiene in the bathroom and keeping it safe for us.

How Does a Bottle Trap Work?
It is a vessel which has a bigger diameter than the plumbing pipe that comes from the basin. When water gushes down, this vessel fills with the new water. Thus, the trap always remains filled with a certain amount of water.

When the sewer gases waft up the system through the outlet pipes, they reach the bottle trap, but here they find their way sealed with the water that has collected in the trap. The passage remains closed and doesn’t allow the return waste and gases to enter.

The P-Trap
If you look at a sink and its plumbing from the side, you may see that it extends straight from the wall and then dips down and curves back up, much like the letter ''P.'' This is called a P-trap. That dip down and back up is basically the same waste-water travel pattern in use inside the bottle trap except the true P-trap does so with a full length of pipe.

For narrow sinks, a shallow-basin waste trap or a shallow P-trap will do the job for you. ''Shallow'' means it accomplishes the same thing but over a shorter distance or with a lower profile than a traditional P-trap might.
P-traps are highly effective and are easy to flush and clean, and they usually meet building codes.

The S-Trap
Another common trap you might find at the home center is the S-trap, commonly used on kitchen sinks, but you should avoid these. Like the P-trap, if you look at the S-trap from the side, you'll see an ''S'' shape. It requires more space to install, but that's not why it has fallen out of favor or why many states have made the S-trap illegal.

The reason is that the construction allows for a possible siphoning situation that causes the water to get completely drained out so sewer gases emerge from the drain.
