Waste not want not
20 Sep 2013
By PremierHandyman
, Hampshire
"I have bought quite a few of these traps as they are telescopic which gives you the ability to place the trap where you need it up or down a few inch's which on a new fit is quite good but as a replacement part on an existing basin pipe work they are more than handy.
They are easy to fit but one word of warning, make sure that the bottle part at the bottom is screwed up tight because sometimes out of the bag they are a little loose and will let by, not a bad thing by any means and easily rectified by a firm twist.
Price wise these are a bargain, would I recommend this product well the answer to that is yes its that simple

Beware of incorrect label
13 Nov 2012
By RedSquirrel
, Merseyside
"Bought 2 of these. No problem fitting trap and no leaks. However 1 of them was a 40mm size even though it said 32mm on the bag label. Got it exchanged no problem but when they checked their stock 9 out of 12 were also wrongly labelled. So save yourself a return trip and check what size it actually is inside the bag before you leave the counter."

No problem
25 May 2012

"Reading some of these reviews you would think this trap had problems it doesn't. It is most probably the user. Care needs to be taken with ensuring the sealing ring is in the right position and tighten ensuring it isn't cross threaded."

"Always look out for the diy'er reviews. If you know what you are doing its easy, if you don't know what you are doing well thats why you are a diy'er. I blame the TV programs.
This is a great trap, priced well and easy to fit, would buy again."

Very good if you take care.
13 Jun 2012
By petertheplumber
, St.Albans
"This product is fine. The bottle thread leaks reported by others may be caused by the high friction on the thread. This results in a "juddery" effect when tightening which means that the seal might not be complete if you were in "mid judder" on tightening. One turn of PTFE tape on the threads will make for a very smooth tightening and a perfect seal every time."

Stunning bottle trap!
6 Jan 2009
By GobbyBob
, Bury St Edmunds
"Looking for a telescopic bottle trap? Look no further - they simply don't come better than this. If this bottle trap was an animal it would be a great white shark. Looks great from all angles and the way the waste pipe slips so smoothly in to the compression connector it's an absolute pleasure to handle. I couldn't entertain the idea of shopping elsewhere knowing Screwfix offer this particular item of unquestionable quality. I'd buy a garageful if I thought I'd ever need another one, oh - and they'd all be telescopic of course!"

Just a bit too cheap
21 Oct 2013
By Jason12345
, Bristol
"These are so cheap I buy one just in case I need it, or to replace the old one "just for good measure" when changing the basin waste.
The main problem is the top seal is tiny and needs to be perfectly square on to the basin waste.
The first one I fitted took about 3 goes to get it leak free. The second one needed some silicone and for the third I ended up cleaning up the original bottle trap and installing that again.
If Screwfix did a better quality adjustable bottle trap that's what I would buy, even if it was more expensive."

Good value but that's all
24 Dec 2012
By System3Bathrooms
, Alloa,Scotland
"The seals on this range of traps are very poor. They are just not up to the job. The threads cut in the nuts are terrible too. I've found that although even that they are properly fitted, through time, they will weep and leak. I only use them if I'm stuck and can't get the far superior McAlpine ones and even then change them when I can."

leaked

By Jigster

"Take notice of other reviews which mention this to leak - It seems a lottery to see if you are going to get a unit that doesn't leak!
I thought it would be ok, but i was wrong.
Had to purchase another branded unit from another supplier which was more expensive but at least didn't leak!"

"I would never use this product again. I tried this after using the equivalent McAlpine product and as i said I would never use it again. It is more fiddly to fit and can leak. I would recommend you spend the extra money and buy McAlpine you wont be disappointed."

poorly designed trap
27 Nov 2012
By tone5
, Huddersfield
"Bought one of these traps and fitted easily. Unfortunately it started leaking around the removable bowl o ring seal. Replaced it with a second trap only to find it also leaked. It appears that this trap moulding is a poor design resulting in the o ring not sealing properly. Pity since this is a versatile, cheap product. O ring seat needs re designing. Wasted a lot of time with this trap, beware."

By musiceditorcouk
, Yateley
"I bought two of these and I'm afraid they both leaked around the top of the bottle. The clear plastic seal if pathetic and doesn't do the job however tight you do it up.
Not worth taking back as its so cheap but am going to look at McAlpine instead."
