Great value for money!

"Great value for money, easy to install, however you will need a wide screwdriver (or an old chisel) to tighten the fixing screw. For peace of mind always use silicone between the metal waste and sink."

"Installed easy works well but just to point out its a deep fitting by 8cm the one I had which is a Overflow one too was 5cm deep but luckily the pipe work allowed me to fit it.
This would look perfect if the strainer pole was stainless steel but works all the same."

Strained review?!
03-Jun-2013
By
, Norwich
"I have read the bad reviews regarding the strainer preventing the water from going down the drain and can only say that if you are careful with the strainer and just ease it upwards slightly all will work as it should and let the water escape. I have found that if you use a bowl in the sink it tends to push the strainer down into the plughole thus creating the sink plug effect and preventing the water from escaping. The answer as I said previously is to remove the bowl and ease the stainer upwards slightly. Apart from that I find the item to be adequate for my needs. I would also recommend using some silicone sealer between the sink and the strainer when you fit them together "just in case". I have had no leaks but just think it should be done."

"Needed a replacement for the main sink of a Franke double bowl sink as the original plastic affair had broken around the fixing hole in the centre of the waste. Perfect fit and looks good even though it is stainless in a cream coloured sink"

Part value

"I have no complaint about the unit. I actually wanted the strainer without the waste but they do not supply that part. This makes the waste part of the purchase redundant--and is basically wasted.
Thanks

Not suitable for china sink
16-Feb-2014
By
, Devon
"We have a Belfast-style china sink with a very thick bottom, and this waste does not fit, the central threaded tube is not long enough. This product would be fine on a steel or ceramic sink that was thinner on the bottom, for this sink it is no good."

Didn't last!
17-Apr-2010
By
, Dorset
"I was very impressed with this strainer and it was very easy to fit. However, now after about 3 months use the strainer basket will not stay in the raised position as the rubber component seems to have softened. It still acts as a plug and seals the sink perfectly - but it can no longer be used as a strainer. I have two of these and both have the same defect."

Doesn't Hold Water
05-Feb-2014
By
, Harrow, North West L
"This strainer looks good but I found that the first time I filled the sink with water, the water drained slowly away with the strainer down as far as it can go. It obviously doesn't seal properly which is really annoying as we don't always use a bowl in the sink. I am going to take it back to Screwfix and buy a McAlpine one from somewhere else."

Poor product
21-Aug-2011
By
, Surrey
"I had a really nice strainer with my sink but a bit of it broke so I needed a replacement and this was what I ended up with.
It drains very slowly when open and most of the retaining mechanism is rubber/plastic (unlike my last one which was mostly metal. The holes are quite large and won't filter well but it is held open just by friction of the rubber base, when this perishes the unit will need to be replaced which is poor design in my opinion.
The over-flow attachment didn't match my sink either.
I will replace this unit as soon as I can find a suitable alternative."

Absolute rubbish does not work
12-Jun-2011
By
, northants
"The higher priced strainer/plug looks nice with it's brushed stainless finish and spiral cut drain slots - but looks deceive!
Fitted correctly only today and the weight of the water as it empties pulls the strainer basket down into the plug hole instantly. This leaves you either having to take it out to empty the water down the plug hole or if you want it to strain the yukky bits, hold the basket a few mms above the plug hole all the time with your lower arm & hand in the dirty hot water........
Badly designed product that never worked from the start. It has turned out to be an expensive old fashioned sink plug!
"
