Tips for choosing
The choice of model is worth starting with the measurement of the drain hole of your plumbing. The diameter of the inlet of the selected siphon should coincide with this value, otherwise the sealing of the connection will be problematic. The same applies to the diameter of the outlet of the product, which must fully correspond to the diameter of the hole in the sewer pipeline.
Choosing the number of inlets in the siphon, consider all the existing equipment that you have, requiring access to sewage (washing and dishwashers).
If you are unlimited in space, it is better to choose a bottle siphon, as it is easier to clean. If you have not much space under the sink, consider corrugated or flat options.
