They added value to the look!
9 May 2013
By memememe
, France
"I fitted three of these basin wastes two days ago, I all ways fit wastes with a bit of silicone & P.T.F.E. tape on the threads, just to be sure!
When I took them out of the box I was very impressed, they are metal & quite heavy for a small item.
I filled the sink with water for 24 hours after fitting and they didn't lose one drop of water!
I read the reviews of sticking popup action and weak springs and only time will tell!
I'm very happy so far and they add a quality look to my bathroom.
If I get any problems in the future, I will amend this review.

"Just what the doctor ordered. (& no I'm not a doctor, a plumber, just what i needed) easy to fit

A thoroughly excellent product in every way.

By blakester

"read reviews so was a bit nervous about buying this. Unfounded fears! great product, had no probs with plastic back nut, just needs silicon grease and hand tight,it will not leak. Should you prefer the brass back nuts,any plumbers merchants sell these for a quid! The waste looks nice and works well, good value!"

Good idea but!!
24 Oct 2010
By wwkeith

"Had one of these plugs for some time now. Worked fine at first and I was impressed. Then it started to stick down. Found I could free it using a rubber sucker to lift it. Problem was that the seal had expanded(probably a reacition with soaps etc) My solution was to cut about 2mm out of the seal and rejoin with superglue. Works well now. I would not recomend this product unless the seal problem is solved."

Some reliablity issues
22 Sep 2008
By Teabag
, Somerset
"Easy to fit, and spring mechanism seems very robust.
Chrome plating is tough. Good looking for the money.
Plastic nut is not so robust though and split when being hand tightened - requiring purchase of another.
Also note - almost impossible to stop rotation when tightening (a flat somewhere on the thread would help).
Spring mechanism jammed (closed) once, requiring dis-assembly to apply force from below to re-open, and drain the sink (problem looked to be a very tight seal - at least it stops water leaking away from the basin when in use :)
Overall, looks nice but could be easier to fit."

Failed over time in hard water
2 Oct 2012
By Routeman
, Swindon
"I bought 3 of these in 2010 and fitted into a cloakroom and 2 bathrooms. They have been troublesome over time in our hard water area.
1. One of these is hardly ever used - it stuck solid after 2 years. Managed to free it with a large wrench, oiled it and lets see what happens next.
2. One is used several times per day and has stopped working - if you push it down it does not spring up again. Had to change it - what an effort.
3. One unit is used every now and again and is still working okay.
None of the units has had a smooth action. Given that it is not easy to replace a waste I would not recommend."

Sticky Mechanism
22 Nov 2008
By ElKilogram
, Lincs
"I've now had three of these and wish i hadn't. the sprung bit is forever sticking into the plughole. To stop this happening the bowl and the waste must be spotlessly clean which isn't always practical in a hard water area. I wouldn't recommend this product."

Good looks - afful performance
7 May 2013
By greenwellington
, Algarve
"I have fitted seven of these, some as originals in new bathrooms and some as replacements thinking that the originals were a bad batch.
They have all failed over time, by sticking in the down position, because the O ring seal swells.
It is then very difficult to release them without dismantling the whole fitting from the bottom - a real pain on a bidet!
I have recently seen a similar product (bath and basin with the same mechanism but the seal is made on the top face rather than the bore and this looks to be a much improved design.
Anyone know who stocks this version? Come on Screwfix - far too many negative reports on your version
