"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."
"Best value on the market. Easy to install. Looked on numerous web sites could not find better value. Read reviews and could not understand why anyone would have a problem with the seals on this trap. easy to fit and looks great"
"It looks really nice on, but it takes a while to get it all straight, lined up and sealed. I had to dismantle it a few times and make sure the length of the vertical tube was just right to get the horizontal tube in square with it. Trial and error really, but until it is just right the rubber seals leak slightly. Would recommend, but don't try to rush the installation."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"FAirly good metal materials, but poor rubber seals. the flat washer between the basin waste and top flange of the trap is so thin it mis-aligns and pushes up into the basin waste when you tighten. I cut a new washer from a piece of 3mm rubber sheet and solved this. So conclude the design is flawed as it doesnt fit all basin wastes. needs a thicker washer to be supplied in the kit Also the seal on the side pipe is another very thin rubber seal which has to be tightened to the limit to make a good seal. i'm not buying any more of these."
"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!!"
"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."
"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."
"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."
