    I can fit this trap easily in the space but what do I need to connect into the vertical connector? None of my current connectors fit it.

    Where is the shower in relation to the loo, is the shower waste linked to the soil pipe below and near the loo? Or (simple solution) is some dirty sod ****ing in the shower?

    The shower goes into the same soil pipe as the loo which is very close.

    I already have what people are telling me to put in and it’s crap. I need a proper airlock. See pics.

  12. I think if you install a fanny trap then take out the Cup and let the fanny trap do the job
