Blockages?
25 May 2013
By Nick27
, Plymouth
"I used this on a cloakroom basin in a house which I subsequently rented out and now live a long way away. The sink waste has blocked and I have recently thought that the centre pipe up to the sink is too long (due to adjustment?) preventing water running away. Has anybody else had this problem so I know what to do on my next visit? If this is the problem cutting 6mm off the bottom of the centre pipe ought to cure it. It looks good and I have had no problems with leaks."

Beware - the seals!
26 Mar 2010
By Fellsman
, Darwen
"The trap has a very porly designed sealing ring in the bottom. There is a plastic 'cup' in the bottom of the trap and unless it is removed the rubber seal between the top and bottom halves will not compress and the the trap will leak every time the sink is emptied. My tip is to discard the plastic inner cup then everything is fine."

Length of outlet pipe
11 Jul 2013
By peanuts
, West London
"I bought this product purely on the cost, it represents excellent value for money. The dimensions of the overall length of the waste pipe are not on the web site or in the catalogue. I could not use it because it was to short. The actual length is approx 200mm. / 8" from the centre of the waste to the end of the pipe but you still must allow for the connection to the waste pipe in the wall, the only fitting I could find to fit was a compression fitting. Hope this helps anyone wanting to buy this product."

Pipe dia. and length a problem
16 May 2009
By Barkerdog
, Hope Valley
"The output pipe is just too short. In my case it just reaches the tiles behind the sink - another inch longer and it would go through with enough to connect to. Because the diameter of the pipe is a non standard size it is very difficult to extend. An optional longer pipe (preferably with a standard 1.25" diameter end) would be a great help. The unit does come with an extra rubber olive to enable you to connect it to a compression plastic fitting but these are big and ugly if you have to use on the sink side of the wall defeating the point of using a neat chrome trap."

Dodger.1
7 Sep 2012
By Dodger1
, Sussex
"This trap is not 1 1/4", so you cannot put 32mm plastic pipe direct into the trap. It comes with a short adaptor pipe in chrome, you then need a compresion fitting to adapt to plastic pipe.. Its okay if your waste pipe is in a dry lined void, otherwise it won't look too pretty!!"

Don't waste your money
7 Apr 2014
By BobKOM
, Tring
"Looks nice, but fails on multiple fronts. The outlet pipe is 28mm and expands up to almost 32mm, but this means you can't use standard 32mm chrome pipe to extend to the wall. The flange on the up pipe that connects to the waste is too narrow so the rubber washer keeps slipping inside the fitting. None of the parts seal at all well and you'll find yourself wasting lots of time undoing and then re tightening the fittings only to find another seal is leaking."

Non standard pipe
19 Apr 2013
By accord20
, Middlesbrough
"The outlet from the trap uses a non standard pipe 28mm on the supplied pipe this then expands up to 32mm; however its overall length is too short not enough to reach the wall.
Will be returning for a more standard unit.

The pipe is too short!
28 Feb 2010
By GingerLizard
, Norfolk
"Yes folks. like many other reviewers, I've found the horizontal pipe is too short.
This is using an ideal standard basin onto a Grohe basin frame - i.e very widely used parts.
The smallest cloakroom basins are ok (just), but an ideal standard bathroom basin, and the basin drain is an extra 17mm further from the wall and it's *impossible* to use this trap to couple the basin drain to frame drainage pipework."

18 May 2009
By rwnlowe

"The chrome pipe is too short and won't reach the wall. As its an odd size with a taper just after it leaves the trap there's no way of replacing it with a longer pipe.
If the pipe was 2" longer this would be a great product. As it is it'll go in the bin."

chrome plated trap-leaks l
3 Mar 2009
By Nobody
, South West
"The stainless steel outlet pipe diametre is fractionally smaller than a standards 32 mm diametre pipe. Consequently you do not get a seal with the connection unit (either push fit or tightening). I thought it was strange before I fitted it. The effect is that it doesnt sit in the connector properly and the difference is enough to make it leak, particulary at full flow.
Thats really annoying since otherwise the unit looks OK!.If it fitted it would be perfect."
