Michael Gormley, Heriot Watt University
- Water trap seals within Building Drainage Systems are the main, and often the only, form of protection from ingress of contaminated air from the main sewer.
- Air flow and air pressure is more important than water flows in building drainage systems and can communicate harmful pathogens from one part of a building to another.
Water trap seal vulnerability and transmission of pathogens through pipework due to a process of aerosolization (Bioaerosols) can lead to disease spread within buildings.
