Sewer line


I am having my 50 clay pipe sewer line replaced. The plumbers just got to the part where the pool's overflow drains and backwash line ties in. He said he needed to put an "air trap" on there to pass inspection. Then, he was SEWER SPECIALIST he said just going to tie it in like it was and cover it up, hoping the city inspector won't say anything.
I am not sure what to do. I want this done right but I don't want a huge additional cost to bring this up to code. Does anyone have any knowledge of the complexities of tying the pool drain in?

"50 clay pipe sewer line replaced" Ok what are you talking about?
Never heard of a pool overflow being tied into any type sewer drain.
"Then, he was SEWER SPECIALIST" no clue what that was suppose to mean.

monni- I moved your thread to plumbing section.
I see you're from UK- welcome aboard! I hope we can get you some answers.

Your system needs to be code compliant. Best to get the air trap installed. You don't want the sewage backing up into the pool....Sounds like the trap will keep that from happening.
Did this installer give you a firm price or a time and material price? If a firm price- perhaps he should have seen the trap and missed it and is attempting to save himself some money.
If a T&M contract then he is trying to save you some money....
