What a waste! Not a waste...
15 Jan 2015
By UnclePaul
, Lancaster
" ...of money!
Replaced a popup with this. So much better, good flow, doesn't clog as there is a simple clearer path with no mechanisms in the way to trap detritus, not much to go wrong in use. Looks good. Will get this for next waste.

Best ever basin waste
3 Dec 2014
By manxy
, Evesham
" I have bought and fitted a few wastes in the past.
After reading other reviews,I thought this system sounded very good. I am more than pleased with the look and very good run off. also ease of use. No plug or chain hanging about. Fitted in next to no time.
Would definitely recommend this one. Top quality at a very reasonable price. It looks and feels like it should last a long time.

One of the better wastes......
21 Oct 2014
By HBH1
, Jarrow
" Had to replace broken 4 year old sprung pop-up waste. Read all the reviews and chose this one.
Took longer to remove old waste and silicone sealant that it did to fit new waste!
I took a tip from a reviewer and used silicone to seal the upper washer to the basin.
No leaks and water leaves basin faster than before which helps to stop any soap and limescale build up in the waste and trap.
Can't comment on reliability as time will tell how the centre seal on rotating plug will perform but
looks the biz.
Finished job looks very neat and modern.

" This is the 4th style of basin waste I've used. The previous 3 being sprung pop-up types from other sources. Each seeped through the plug seal rendering them useless. This one works well, it is robust and I liked the quality and design. Also no messy chains or stoppers to fiddle with. "

Great plug, love it
7 Jan 2014
By Michael83
, Aberdeen
" I had this in my previous bathroom for 3 years without any problems and have just installed another one in my new house.
I much prefer these to unsightly plugs hung around the tap or to trying to fiddle with pop-up wastes. Seals appear ok, but i don't take any chances and run a small bead of clear silicon as well.
The only time to be cautious is if someone fills the sink with dirty water, i.e. mopped floors. If the plug is closed, the fine grit can work it's way in and jam the plug. But, dirty floor water should be washed down the toilet not the sink anyway! "

Saving on waste!
20 Dec 2013
By SpringHarvest
, Swanley, Kent
" A Bathstore basin waste failed after only a few weeks. This Screwfix replacement is of an equal quailty (chrome on heavy brass), but has a much better design than its more expensive predecessor. A rubber 'O' ring replaces the metal to metal seal for the captive flipper, and thus negates any possibility of becoming jammed with fine particles. Fitting was standard and simple (I always use a small squirt of silicon instead of the rubber washer), with no leaks. It has now been in use for about a month, looking classy and functioning perfectly. I cannot comment on long-term reliability. Recommended. "

The only waste to buy!
12 Jul 2013
By Armada
, Redcar
" Fitting these throughout a large guesthouse as various other types supplied as standard with basins fail. . .
Have fitted about ten so far with no problems whatsoever.
Good looking, robust product with few of the problems associated with other style - especially push-down/pop-ups which are a complete disaster.
Ref. to others comments about the plastic nut: I always throw this away and replace it with a 32mm brass backnut. Also, don't trust the supplied seals, back them up with a ring of sanitary clear or white sealant. "
