Problem solver.
27 Oct 2011
By scorpiodave

"This shallow device saved a lot of work.I wanted to reverse the orientation of my new bath, but a normal trap would have meant having to go below floorboards and cut a number of joists.This device allowed the waste to fit without that need.It seems to empty bath just as good as a normal trap."

round the bend
23 Dec 2009
By Beartank
, Surrey
"Its a bit limited what can be said about this but its good quality at a reasonable price . It fits into very limited space and as it is tight to the bath it allows a decent fall in the drain run. It also has the advantage of a extra unscrewable bit in the U for cleaning if required without having to remove the whole thing."

Shallow trap at great price
26 Mar 2013
By MAZ4477
, Birmingham and Devon
"This trap represents reasonable quality at an exceptional price. The one caution I would say is to make absolutely sure that the service port of the trap is sealed properly before use. Mine had obviously just been loose assembled in the factory and leaked badly on first test. I had to take the service port blanking plug off and carefully push down the rubber seal to get it fully seated squarely in the back of the plug, before screwing it back onto the trap firmly. Then all was well."

Cheap and does the job
9 Mar 2011
By Kerus

"The blanking plate leaked when I first fitted it so I had to take it off and reassemble, cleaning the rubber seal. It sealed perfectly after that.
The low profile fits neatly under my bath and does exactly what it' supposed to!"

"Although I fitted everything and double check the connections it started to leak from the small access point. I had hand tightened it and so i tightened it a little more but it kept on leaking!! I checked the seal and everything but it was useless. Chucked it in the bin for something more reliable!"

"Cheap but useless.
Stripped the threads before it was hand tight.
I thought it may have been me that cross threaded it so i bought another; same outcome.
Leaks like a sieve and stupidly simple to cross thread.
Do not buy"

Cheap for a reason!
19 Jan 2013
By AndyMB

"The shallow design is great to avoid chopping floorboards, but I had two problems with this part- the seal to the bath leaked as it is too narrow and didn't seal correctly, and the access port cover also wouldn't seal even when carefully tightened. Next time I would happily spend a bit more for a better quality part."
