"Guys, this is a quality product and the design is tried and trusted. Much more reliable than a click-clack and much cleaner than a plug.
But take three things into account when you fit it;
1. You can get this slotted and unslotted and you need to get the right one.
2. In most applications this will not seal at the lower end without some sealant. I favour the amazing Plumber's Gold by Ever Build (cheap and superb). This is not a criticism of this product by the way, this is so of nearly all types of basin waste units of this type. It's not so much the product as it is the sinks they have to go into.
3. Check the length of your old one and make sure you can use the length of this one. This one is about 75mm from the underside of the flange. That is a just a little on the short side for these."
"Great unslotted basin waste. Good value for money and extremely easy to fit (if a dummy like me can do it!) Used small amount of sealant to ensure it was water tight and to help bed it in! Looks pro too!"
"I chose this to replace a leaky conventional type. As the old one was caked in sealant I wasn't confident of a first-time fix. I was pleased to find, that with a few turns of PTFE tape top and bottom, a watertight first-time seal was achieved. I like the design, it has no loose parts that can be broken off or lost. I have 2 teenagers. Nuff said."
"Excellent product - does what you want with a minimum of fuss and looks very nice. NB This product number is for the UNslotted version. If you want the slotted version, the product number is 64920. (They have an unhelpful description for the slotted version - i.e. "captive basin waste", instead of a helpful one - e.g. "swivel slotted basin waste", so it's not that easy to find on the web site)."
"I previously used a sprung pop up waste and had an issue with my basin not draining very quickly (plus the popup mechanism became faulty) - this swivel basin waste drains better/quicker than the popup waste did and also (as a previous reviewer commented) you dont' get as much visible limescale (which used to build up on the dome of the pop up waste)"
"Excellent if you have children, doesn't scale up in the same way as the sprung version, no chance of the plug being pulled off the chain. If you have an overflow on your then you need to select the slotted option, unlike the first reviewer who bought the wrong one and then blamed the product for not working."
"Used this to replace a jammed solid metal plug insert, this one has rubber ring which is better. This is a good value replacement, decent quality and very easy to fit. Bear in mind these things have a lifespan but if you keep them clean and grit free they should last for years. As the first revier said, the body length is shorter so take this into account. As usual thank you Screwfix for having this in stock at my local depot. I honestly dont know how other merchants stay in business."
"The product is useless in that you cannot remove it like a conventional plug, to clean the waste! Can't even get my little finger down there. No room. Don't people clean their sinks anymore? I should imagine this wouldn't last as long as a conventional one either. What if something gets stuck down there? I expect these are popular with those doing up nasty cheap properties to rent out. Good enough for those that can't afford to buy i suppose. Moan over. just an aside - if you are doing up a property to rent out - use good quality products as they last longer and work out cheaper and less hassle with problems in the long run. Please don't go with the mentality that tis 'good enough for them'."
