    During non seasonal use what keeps the trapped primed? If trap dries out sewer gases in the attic.

    Cheers,

    Jim,

    Generally, you will see a drain pipe connected to the p-trap under a bathroom sink. Like Raymond indicated, a trap primer would be necessary in this case.

    Two mentions of a trap primer, none of the missing air gap ...

    ... unless you read through the posts in the link Aaron posted.
