What is a siphon for?

A siphon is sometimes also called a water trap or a gooseneck. This is because of its shape. However, these names are not common. Because water is retained in the siphon, unpleasant sewer odours are prevented. Therefore, a siphon serves as an odour trap. A siphon is always connected to sanitary appliances (that use running water) and is attached between the appliance in question and the drain to the sewer. For example, a shower, a washbasin, a bath or a toilet, but also a washing machine and a dishwasher.
