Spanish term or phrase: bote sifónico
The following phrase implies something other than a simple "trap" for "bote sifónico" Can anyone help? (And the word "arqueta" appears in very few dictioanries. It is not always an inspection chamber. Where can one find a glossary of all these terms?) "En los aseos se adopta la solución de botes sifónicos mientras que en las cocinas los sifones son del tipo individual en cada uno de los aparatos

You can see a pic and technical specs of a "bote sifónico" from this link:

You'll get 70 google results if you search for "siphon trap". Evidently, they're used mainly in plumbing, sewer drains, bathtub and wash bowl drains, etc.

The first link below is the first site I've seen with an illustration of pipes with a siphon trap.

The second link is a glossary of terms used in the industry

HTH Giles!

Thanks for your help and the references. It is one thing to find monolingual references, but in most cases when my own doictionaries let me down, Eurodicautom is the only on-line one that can help, but in this case....
"Arqueta" and "registro" are always tricky words where no picture is available with the text.
Again, thanks
