Just got required by a bellevue, wa inspector to add a trap seal primer to a condensate waste receptor...has anyone else run into this? I thought that the condensate maintains the trap seal just fine... any thoughts?
What is your developed length of pipe run to the drain? I sold the "Core" once on the fact that by the time the water reached the drain, you'd have nothing but vapor (granted they were more than 40 feet and up to 100 feet of pipe). Not to mention that the damn drains were surrounding a pool!!!!:thumbup:
Argued with an inspector once about using a trap guard. He must have been in cahoots with the builder, trying to make the outfit I work for take a bath. Ended up running 475' of tubing... Wonder if that primer has seen a squirt yet??? Lol
There is no way out your are in Bellevue, 100% by the book no questions. Yes you are required to have a trap primer 2006 UPC page 132 1007.0 Trap Seal Protection. Bellevue is a bit insane with the book. Got called for air gap discharge to a Dishwasher tee was told it had to go to the Disposal barb which on this sink was above the discharge of the air gap. He stood there while I made the correction. Changed it back when I ran the dishwasher and the air gap squirted.
