    Well Jeff you know the home owner is gonna pour bleach into the traps on a regular basis, yeah right.
    This may be way off, but if the "T" and riser are on the coil side it would certainly need to be capped.

    Jeff,

    Ask the builder to show you where on a Label of bleach does it state for use on HVAC equipment?

    Tell the builder that (a picture of what you saw would have been nice too) what he installed is a "service access point", and that what you are referring to is a "trap and a vent", and that with a "trap and a vent, the vent is after the trap".

    Then thank him for installing a service access point, tell him that most builder's do not do that (actually, I am finding that many are, but that way, you can end with him being able to puff his chest up a little ).
