I thought I would try putting this message out there one more time and hope for the best. 



Are any of you running building traps on your house vacuum systems?  I know standard procedures require lab users to use traps when tapping into the system, but I am curious if any of you have went a step further and installed traps within your mechanical spaces that house the vacuum pumps.  If so, could you please provide me additional information on the traps you are using.
