I just inspected this house, and I am concerned that, in one of the bathrooms, there was a drop in the waste piping six inches after the p-trap. Is that too close? Would that make this the same danger as an s-trap? I could certainly use an answer before I finish this report!!

It is based on the horiztonal run. ? It has to be at least 2x long as the pipe diameter.

So if you have 1.25 pipe, it has to have a horizontal run of at least 2.5 inches before it turns down. ? Looks like you don't have the required horizontal run. ? ]
