nice looking conTRAPtion. i can see how having water flow with gravity (top to bottom) in a large area can make it harder for bubbles to escape.

IMHO, my vision of an ideal air-trap is sort of like this:

Code:
             put filler cap here
tangential   |              |
inlet        |              |
       ------               |<----------this region needs to be widened  
       ------               |
             |              |  
             |              |
             |              |
             |              |<-----------the longer this region is, the better
             |              |
             |      | |_____|______
             |      |_______ ______centered outlet
             |______________|
just a pipe dream for me, since my simple "T-coupler trap" has done OK so far.
