French term or phrase: contre siphons
This comes from the field of refrigeration:
Le tuyauteur frigoriste....vérifie les siphons et contre siphons... Siphon is the same in English, but I can't find "contre siphon" anywhere and I am worried that there is some special term for it. Please help if you can. (I prefer no guesses.)
Thanks, Gayle
