etc. will produce dramatically different results.

CLAY TRAPS
The Gleco Trap is perfect for: schools, universities, art centers, hobbyists, studio potters, labs and more! This
handy clay trap provides you with an economical plumbing trap that is easily installed and maintained. The Gleco
Trap is connected below the sink and collects solids in a bottle, which has a fill line. When the solids reach the
fill line, the trap is drained through a valve, the bottle is exchanged with a replacement bottle, the valve shut and
the trap is back in service. Bottle exchange is rapid and done without the need of tools. Most of all, there is no
mess and no chance of water spillage.
There are two different packages available, you choose the model that will fit under your sink. The larger size
requires 15.5" of clearance from the drain pipe to the floor. The smaller size requires 11.5" of clearance.
Key Benefits of the Gleco Trap

a.      Adapts easily to existing plumbing, wherever there is a p-trap (u-shaped joint).

b.     Smaller bottle means less odors generated in and emitted from the trap.

c.      Clear bottle enables you to see the contents of the trap at any time.

d.     Fill line easily and quickly shows when the trap needs to be serviced.

e.      Drain valve allows for all the water above the bottle to be drained prior to
removal, eliminating spillage.

f.       Replacing the bottle takes less than 2 minutes from start to finish, with no tools,
no risk of spillage, and no risk of coming into contact with the solids contained
within the Gleco Trap.

INTERNET-CURSE OR BLESSING?

MARJON CERAMICS is dedicated to supporting a method
of distribution which supplies both the products and the support
that enable the consumer to be successful with those products.
In this fast paced age of communication and internet usage we all
need to evaluate our priorities when making our buying
decisions. What is necessary to make you successful with your
ceramics? Do you want the convenience of having a store in your
city (or state for that matter) that will not only provide you
with product but is a source of expert information? Your local
merchant may also hold classes or seminars that are a major part
of the learning process. At the same time providing you with
a meeting room/classroom that is a place not only to learn but to
enjoy contact with others who enjoy what you enjoy! The fact is,
the storefront where you shop is only there because of you and
your visits. It's easy to surmise that if you don't trade at that store,
they it may not be there next time you want to run over and pick something up!
YOU are the most important part of any business.
All successful business owners know this. Without YOU the independent
business operators and their stores are gone!
