Home made sink clay trap
The one thing I’ve always missed in my studio is an effective way of dealing with all that gloopy clay water. Cue drum roll….a cheap and very easy to make under sink clay trap.
Its basically two linked buckets within another container. The idea is that the water drains into the first (left hand) bucket and then slowly drains into the next bucket and then out into the larger container.
The right hand side bucket has a series of holes drilled into the side which the water seeps out of.
Each set of drain holes is lower than the previous ones so that the water flow is slowed down to allow the sediment time to settle out. The whole construction is easy to remove and to clean. The outlet from the large white container can be plumbed straight into the drain. Funny how the simple things in life can make such a difference.
