Installation hints:
  1. Since it traps items that may fall into the drain and blocks gases from the waste drain system, water and dirt will be present in the existing trap. Place a bucket under the old trap before attempting to remove it.
  2. Put thread sealant tape or pipe dope on the drain threads before attaching nuts. This will provide a better seal against leaks.
  3. Use a scrap of cloth to protect chrome finish on the nuts when you tighten with a wrench.
