Every fixture needs a p-trap to prevent sewer gasses from entering your home, the result of not have any will be the health and well being of your family. Besides being an unpleasant smell it can be fatal.

all plumbing fixtures must have a trap to prevent the sewer gases from coming back up the drain.. the trap retains water which acts as a seal..
