Outline

Drain traps for washbasins and hand-washbasins serve the purpose of creating a water seal which prevents smells and pests from coming up the drainpipes. It achieves this through its S-shape or U-shape. We propose our "WALESS" for washbasins as a solution to this problem. Instead of a water seal, "WALESS" incorporates a self-closing membrane. When water flows, the membrane opens naturally to allow the water to drain and then closes naturally once the flow is over. WALESS is a drain trap designed to enable linear plumbing and realize a more compact approach to drain trap plumbing.
