A bell trap is a trap that is used in a floor or roof drain in commercial structures. The use of a bell trap is not allowed in residential use and a P trap is normally installed in a residence. The reason for the identification of this type of trap as a bell, is its appearance, simply looks like a bell installed under the actual drain itself. These type of traps require recharging and are often dry therefore not performing its intended use.
