I am considering getting a gleco trap for a guild situation. Has anyone had any problems in this area or do they work great?

I had one installed in the HS studio where I taught. For the 4 yrs I used it it worked great. The Custodial staff liked it also, as they would keep a spare jar, take one off, put a new one on and take their time cleaning out the old. Good system.

I started with the smallest container that Gleco makes but discovered that I had room for a larger trap and bought one I love the quick change from a full trap to an empty one. No leaks, Easy to clean. I would recommend it.

Nice to hear good reviews as I am getting a sink installed into my studio very soon and need a trap to recommend.

A two inch pipe fitted to the drain so that you will have setting water in the sink unless the pipe is taken out is helpful also. Heck to clean out, but keeps the bigger stuff from going down the drain, then take the pipe out and rinse the rest into the trap.

Gleco traps are awesome. I've had them installed in my studio for ten years without a problem. I have the largest size bottle and we fill it every week. I did have a new one once that leaked, but the problem was the bottle, not the trap itself. Clean off the rim of the bottle when you empty it out and you shouldn't have any problems. Get the largest bottle size you can fit under your sink, so you don't have to clean it very often.
