Nicoll reinvents the shower and bath siphon with Magnetech 

How to build a shower or bath with a compact PVC siphon that keeps the drainpipe odours from escaping and gives architects more flexibility? Nicoll’s Docia Magnetech is a rethink of the siphon, using three magnets to open and close a valve. Instead of the European standard 50mm water guard, the ‘’magnet technology’’ in a PVC body opens and closes the valve according to the amount of water that collects in the shower. It’s easily adaptable for bath use.
