"When you plumb sinks is from many different manufacturers you quickly learn that waste/trap kits supplied with them are usually rubbish! I will only ever use a McAlpine trap because I prefer not to have to return to jobs because of a dripping waste!"
"I'm no plumber, far from it (for me the D in DIY normally spells Disaster to be fair). I bought this after reading a review of a slightly cheaper product which was rated as not very sturdy. I can't speak for the cheaper one but this one is made of sturdy plastic and was so easy to fit that even I could do it in just five minutes. The length of the main down pipey bit was easy to adjust (so no sawing) and the blanking caps allowed me to seal off the dishwasher outlet until my new dishwasher arrives. The seals were very effective, no need to go all Charles Bronson on it and no leaks to report. By ordering for collection online, I was able to literally nip in and out of the store without having to search for what I wanted. Great service, solid product, 5 stars from me!"
"I bought a flopast double trap originally and it failed to work-when i tightened the top fitting to the waste the nut pulled through the plastic spigot! This on the other hand is quality, costs a bit more but works first time. I had to go leave the flopast one back to screwfix so cost me an hour in time lost, expensive mistake. Take my advice, stick to McAlpine!"
"When it comes to quality waste traps and fittings you cannot beat McAlpine. This is an ideal trap for taking sink, washing machine and dishwasher wastes. It's easily fitted and adaptable. The design of the seals are second to none and the trap can be fitted with confidence that it'll do the job it was made for. I would highly recommend this trap."
