Working as a Licensed Plumber and a Cross Connection Control Specialist, I have performed many cross connection control surveys. While looking for actual and potential hazards, I repeatedly come across what is arguably the most common type of Severe Hazard Cross Connection - the Trap Seal Primer.
While Plumbers are required by code to install Trap Seal Primers to floor drain traps, they must also ensure they do not make connections between the potable water system and any potential source of contamination, without suitable/approved backflow protection. In the case of Trap Seal Primer supply lines, this Cross Connection between the potable water system and the sanitary drainage system has, for the most part, been overlooked with respect to approved backflow protection.

The Trap Gap™ provides the best method of backflow protection; a code approved, 100% unobstructed 1" Air Gap.
The Trap Gap's™ flow regulating nozzle reduces trap seal primer water consumption. Potable water which would other wise be wasted.
The Trap Gap™, through its 1" unobstructed Air Gap, makes water flowing through the trap seal primer visible. This can alert the user to a leaky faucet, potentially saving hundreds of dollars in water and energy bills.
