I am currently designing a working dog kennel for the local police dept. All ten runs will have sloped floors to a gutter equipped with a floor drain. I am contemplating not installing traps at each floor drain. The only trap and vent will be at the termination of each of the building drains on either side of the kennel building. My thinking is that this will prevent sewer gases from coming back into the system. We will be using a public sewer if permitted. I am concerned, that if I trap each floor drain, maintaining clear drains could be an issue. On the other hand, we could be asking for odor problems if we do not trap. Any experience or knowledge of these issues?
