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."

Aesthetic and Functional
22 Jan 2013
By oddjobberandbrewer
, Scarborough
"This is a simple and aesthetic waste. Here in the hotel we have the pop up wastes that fail regularly, or people just don't understand them, in virtually all the rooms. The first pop up was replaced last summer at the suggestion of a regular who happens to be a plumber. Now, at the first hint of a pop up problem it gets replaced with one of these.. Had absolutely no trouble with them at all and simple to fit. About to order the second batch as spares."

Fantastic product
3 Oct 2012
By Screwfox
, Wirral
"This captive basin waste is very well made and of heavy construction.
I have just replaced two defective pop-ups that came in a sink package but have failed within 12 months; poor plating and one was of such thin tubing it snapped off below the sink.
The quality of the captive waste is incomparable. Only time will tell if the plating lasts and the plug continues to seal, but I am very pleased with the quality. For anyone who hasn't seen these captive plugs, there is no pin or hinge involved. The plug just tilts wherever you press it, and it has a continuous rubber ring seal.

Cute!
2 Jun 2012
By Murphy3
, Yorkshire
"The customer didn't want the pop-up that came with the tap, so I fitted one of these and her verdict was 'cute'.
Looks nice, good price, easy to fit and reliable (I've fitted a few of these and have one in my basin at home).
So if you want a 'cute' basin waste, this is the one!"

Excellent Captive Basin Waste

"Smashing little device - does just what it's supposed to without any fuss.
Easy to install as there's no chain or pop-up mechanism to install.
Robust construction, looks good and about half the price of similar devices.."

Best ideas are usually SIMPLE
21 Nov 2010
By IAlreadyHaveAName
, Chichester, West Sus
"This is proof that the best ideas are usually simple. This works superbly. It looks good having a far smaller 'footprint' in the basin than the usual pop-up.
Installation couldn't be easier. Just need to spread some silicon sealant around the gaskets and tighten the nut. Only the sealant and a spanner are needed.
There no mechanism to go wrong: the plug just twists - in any direction too. No hinge or bracket to rot or jam.
The outlet is virtually unimpeded allowing for fast uninterrupted egress. So there's little possibility of trapping hairs or soap.
I've not rated its reliability because I haven't had it long enough, but with its simple design with absence of any mechanism, it should last as long as a standard plug."

Don't buy a pop-up!
2 Jun 2008
By Flash72
, Crawley
"Just replaced my pop-up (matron) with one of these. Trouble with pop-ups are you can't use a traditional plunger and it's tricky to get unblocking chemicals down there. On removing mine it had gunked up just below the head which chemicals had failed to shift. Also the mechanism was starting to get tired after 3 years.
The swivel plug seals tight with no trace of a drip (unlike some remote trap systems).
I never thought I'd get so much pleasure from watching water drain away unimpeded with this product; I really must get out more.

By Billfish

"I thought after reading the reviews I would need to buy a 32mm brass captive nut as other people were complaining about the one supplied with the waste being useless, but I didn't have a problem tightening it.
If you use your loaf and a bead of silicone sealer, it's fine..
