Liquid Assets, Inc.

The Gleco Trap, marketed and distributed by Liquid Assets, Inc., is an innovative, inexpensive solution to messy, hard-to-use sink traps. Gleco Trap provides you with an economical plumbing trap that is easily installed and maintained. The Gleco Trap is connected below the sink and collects solids in a bottle. When the solids reach the fill line on the bottle, the excess water in trap is drained through a valve, the bottle is exchanged with a replacement bottle, the valve shut and the trap is back in service. Bottle exchange is rapid and done without the need of tools (less than 2 minutes!). Most of all, there is no mess and minimal chance of water spillage.

Most household and commercial sinks are equipped with U-shaped plumbing traps, commonly known as p-traps. Located beneath sinks in kitchens and bathrooms, the devices trap water to prevent gases from entering the residential and commercial buildings. For sinks servicing medical and optical offices, labs, ceramic studios and similar applications involving a concentration of solids, or loss of valuables down the drain, The Gleco Trap has proven to be very successful, selling nearly 20,000 in the first 6 short years it was produced, and that figure has grown exponentially since 2006. To be economical and efficient, the maintenance on the plumbing trap must be easily and quickly performed. Current state-of-the-art equipment, however, did not offer a solution. John Gleason had been employed in the plumbing business for 16 years and serviced many complicated, hard-to-use sink traps. After hundreds of hours of research and dedication, he was issued U.S. Patent # 6,049,922 on April 18, 2000, entitled “Solid Sediment Retainment Plumbing Trap,” more commonly known as The Gleco Trap. The Gleco Trap is the ONLY UPC approved sink trap manufactured today. Liquid Assets, Inc., markets and distributes The Gleco Trap under patent license to individuals, plumbers, and plumbing supply businesses.

High Volume Gleco TrapThe Gleco Trap HV features a newly-engineered, air-tight lid with threaded inlet and outlet extensions that reserve an air pocket inside. When the trap is full, simply remove the air-release plug to drain inlet and outlet plumbing into the bucket before disconnecting. Patented design prevents the mess and contamination that occurs with removal of traditional plaster traps.

**Bucket MUST be disposed and replaced with a new bucket/lid refill after each use – trying to empty the bucket and re-use results in a damaged seal.**

From the inventor of the original Gleco Trap, the Gleco Trap HV Sanitary High-Volume Plaster Trap brings the same clean, dry and simple maintenance to full-size plaster traps. Never again will you soak your cabinets and yourself with foul-smelling, contaminated wastewater when you change your plaster trap container.

Instead of leak-prone flexible hoses found on other traps, the Gleco Trap HV uses standard 1 1/2” threaded inlet and outlet ports to ensure a positively leak-proof assembly. Adapts easily to existing plumbing.
