"Very easy to use and looks great, no plug chains or cables to worry about as all workings in the waste itself. Easy to fit, highly recommended."

Sprung Waste
7 Mar 2010
By AckroydPlumbingandHeating
, Leeds
"An excellent waste, if fitted correctly! The only problem with this waste is if its fitted to a bath with a shower above it as it sits proud and can catch your toe. Far easier to use and more reliable that a mechanical waste. Standard fitting procedures apply, i.e ALWAYS use silicon or plumbers mate when fitting a waste as if you dont it will eventually leak as the rubber washer perishes with time."

Looks great, needs sealant
19 Jun 2013
By JonnoG
, Norfolk
"I bought this waste to match my basin waste.
Installation was pretty simple, and after reading some of the other reviews, I made sure to put plenty of sealant around all of the seals, banjo fitting etc.
It looks great, the plug protrudes a bit when pushed down, but you can't really tell as when it is down, it's generally because its under water!
The only downside is that my 2 year old now finds it hilarious to push the plug up and down, so my water bill has shot up!"

good, but....
27 Aug 2011
By dajojojo
, Clackmannanshire
"The waste body is excellent, but the mating of the banjo and washers is poor and the washer material is poor. The instructions say to apply silicone when installing the overflow but not the main unit. When draining the bath the water in the banjo simply leaks down the thread of the main unit (the plastic retaining nut thread is not a tight match to the main body thread). There's no mention in the instructions of applying any sealant there. I'm not an expert but I suggest using plumbers mate or similar on the threads and sealing all mating surfaces well."

"Does not site flush with the surface of the bath like the sink waste does. Overflow of poor quality and likely to leak. Haven't fitted it yet and the plumber is reluctant to use it."

Looks Good but poor fittings
12 May 2013
By BillericayDicky
, Essex
"The fitted appearance is good but I can only repeat the comments of previous reviewers that it needs lots of sealer to stop it leaking. In my case it leaked down the threads between the nut and fitting. More sealer seemed to cure it."

A gamble that didnt pay for me
2 Sep 2013
By raytay022000
, Peterborough
"This item is a gamble, for some the loads of sealant works and the item wont leak but like me for some it leaks. It's solid build but when it comes to the bits they are not 100% compatible quality. I lost the extra money buying a poorer quality item that does not leak. Take your gamble and good luck because you can't take it back with its used look and seal wrapped around, nor do you want feel like begging."

Poor seal Leads to unfixable

Poor materials used for sealing rings even when backed up with sealant and PTFE."

Worst waste I have ever fitted
3 Mar 2012
By DaveA
, Bedfordshire
"This waste has been made with far too many seperate parts. Unless you have the time to apply silicone between all surfaces and can wait for it to dry, choose another waste. I opted for the cheaper pop up in the end and it is far superior."

Very Poor Item
29 Jan 2012
By ChuckNorris
, Falkirk
"Do not buy this item.
The instructions say use a bead of sealant...i've put sealant on every washer, both sides and it still leaks. I've put PTFE tape around the thread and it still leaks. I've sealed around the outside of the nut and finally got it to stop leaking.
On the plus side the plug itself doesn't leak / drain away water when the bath is full like some of the other reviewers have experienced.
Its a shame because the unit looks great!"

Popping awful
5 Jun 2011
By jamin
, Essex
""Looks = excellent
Quality = Poor. The replacement 'twist' style waste I purchased from Screwfix is like a Bentley in comparison.
Fitting = Difficult to get it to seal at overflow, waste and pipe connections
Design = it is not like a basin pop waste. The sealing section sits on top rather than inside the waste pipe so protrudes a lot.
In use = I have a double ended bath so a central drain. If you slightly move when bathing the thing opens and drains the water out so useless. Also it sticks up so much you catch your toe on it when showering.
In a show home it would be great. In use its terrible. Dont waste your money.""

WASTE of money
2 Feb 2010
By mago
, Hull
"expensive for a bath waste, but i thought it looked good and was modern so i bought it.It would be great if it stopped the water from leaving the bath!!!!!
Filled the bath one day, was busy on the computer for half an hour, whent to get in bath but water had gone:(
You can lay in the bath and listen to the relaxing sound of your water emptying down the drain, or you can lay with your foot on the thing and see if you can get it to seal.Hours of fun NOT! seal obviously not good enough.
"
