    Hi all, I'll be fitting an inline fan in the loft this weekend and bought a condensation trap for the ducting.

    It's too big for the ducting to pull over it, but if the ducting slips inside it then I can't see how to secure the ducting to it other than tape.

    If I use a straight coupler it's the same issue on how to get it to stay inside the trap.

    Appreciate the help.

    Usually there's a piece of hard pipe fitted into the trap and then the flexi duct fits to that.

    Alternatively the duct hose (100mm) on the exhaust side will probably fit inside the trap, and then the channel directs the condensate towards the outlet. A bit of Duct tap would probably be fine to seal it all up.
