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."

Good product, worth purchasing
4 Oct 2014
By Stimpy
, Wisbech, Cambs.
"I bought this as a replacement for my existing plug/chain/waste, when updating our bathroom. This was easy to fit and works as you would expect. As others have said the plug does sit a few mm proud of the waste when closed but it doesn't matter, also you do need to seal all mating surfaces (back nut/rubber washers) to prevent leaks, first fit leaked when not sealed. My only other minor gripe is the the main body of the waste was about 30 mm longer than the previous one, so I had to buy a flexible waste union to marry the waste up. Other than that I would recommend 100%."

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!"

Difficult to seal
30 Oct 2014
By Try2
, Okehampton
"It looks good and works well but is tricky to fit.
Must use sealant above and below hole in bath.
Must use PTFE tape on thread where back-nut fits otherwise water will run through thread.
Use IRWIN Quickgrip or similar clamp to hold bottom of thread whilst tightening nut.
The overflow doesn't project far which is good when used with shower mixer tap.

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

"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."

Disaster avoid
10 Jul 2014
By LondonRuss
, City of London
"This waste looks great and the pop-up feature works really well but it comes in loads of parts with very poor seals. It is a very bad design, I've re-installed it 3 times with sealant and it leaks every time. Wish I'd read more of the reviews I would have returned it but damaged the packaging when opening it."

It's going back!
31 May 2014
By leighton
, Gerrards Cross
"Price looked a bit cheap and it is. Leaks down the thread as reported previously due to poor design. Painstakingly assembled it (twice) using a little mastic on each seal. Seals were fine but, it still leaked badly down the thread, perhaps should have use a reel of PTFE as well. Anyway, it's going back and I'll get a properly engineered one, probably at three times the price, which has an overflow body integral with the main waste. Never had a problem with that type. A regular Screwfix customer, but this is definitely not one of their better lines."
