"This strainer has some nice features - the basket can be left in place but held open by the integral rubber seal on the stem so you the water drains away and you don't scald your hands. The previous strainer I fitted kept shutting the waste whilst in use, causing minor floods!"
"Purchased as a trial to remove an insinkurator fitted 2 was easy to do and done the job in hand without any issues. Part was in stock in all stores and easy to get picked up on Saturday morning at 8am excellent service."
"Bought this sink strainer waste against the advise of my husband, who was convinced that we needed a plumber. Having looked at the one that was broken I thought 'I can do that' and I was right. Started to unscrew old one from underneath with difficulty, then tackled from above just hold from beneath, simple. A few minutes to put in the new one, job done. If I can do it with my arthritic fingers anyone can do it."
"this item matches up with stock 74806 if you need a pair for your sink. large diy stores had poor stock - or none at all and prices were mad. Screwfix had stock at the store ready to go and were less than half price. they are also better quality than the originals!"
"What's to say. It's a basket waste for a kitchen sink. It fits. It seems well made enough and it was half the price of any that I could find elsewhere. The seal on it is good which is the most important thing. For me is was slightly shorter than the one it replaces as it has no side connection on. But pipework was flexible enough to work with it."
"Fitted two of these because the rubber had perished on the one's supplied with the sink i installed a few years back.Quick simple to do, excellent price,some places wanted more than i paid to just supply the strainer, without the plug hole. Would recommend to anyone, just watch out for the sharp edges,around the plug hole when you install them, they are razor sharp"
"the item I purchased from screwfix was first class ,the person on the phone was very polite and very professional , and the next day delivery was second to none , I recommend this product and screwfix any time , well pleased"
"Was a bit dubious when I saw the packing but when I actually installed it and now that has been more than a year that's been there, I've had no problem what so ever and every time I clean it it shins like the first day I bought it. Fabulous stuff, won't go wrong, no dripping no leaking."
"I have never written a review about any product in my life but was more than happy to create a username etc just so that I can let others know about this product.
My original basket strainer had a rubber bung which deteriorated and therefore the basket could no longer plug in.
When I went to the supplier, they said you can't get a replacement and the only solution would be to buy a new sink!
My husband and I everywhere where we though we'd be able to find another basket strainer but to no avail.
My last attempt to try and find one was to search on the internet and the rest is history.
I ordered 2 basket strainers and they were delivered the next day. My husband installed the basket to my new sink with no problems. Unfortunately one of the sinks needed the other type (9.87). I then realised that I have a Screwfit store nearby so simply got a hassle free exchange without having to post the product.
I'm over the moon and can now throw away the basin that didnt even fit in the sink and use my kitchen sink properly."
"You'd think you could get replacement washers for Basket Strainer plugs but I couldn't find them. Then I saw Screwfix were selling the whole Basket Strainer assembly for £5.99 - now we've got sinks that hold water until we let it go and a complete absence of "when are you going to fix that sink?" Great deal or what!"
"I bought these two units as replacements for an existing double kitchen sink unit, on which the original basket strainers had failed. I had searched the high street and had almost given up hope of finding replacements, after being advised by several famous DIY outlets and some smaller bathroom specialists, that the only options were to buy a whole new sink unit or purchase two individual strainers at upwards of £50 each - all tried to justify their outrageous prices by classing them as a special order. Then a Screwfix leaflet landed on my doorstep. I visited the website, found the exact product I was looking for, ordered it on Saturday afternoon for standard delivery, and it arrived the following Monday morning - standard delivery, cheaper and faster than most premium express services !! The box was enormous, and on unpacking, I found that not only were the two basket strainers ordered included, but so were two new sink waste fitments and pipes. They came as complete units, together with easy to follow instructions, so I now have two brand new waste outlets - fitted in a matter of hours. Two complete units cost less than £5 each and standard delivery was less than £5 - substantially less than the £100+ it would have cost on the high street. The basket strainers and sink rims are high grade stainless steel and the overall quality is excellent - better than the originals in fact. I sent two query emails to Screwfix and the replies came within minutes. I found the overall service to be excellent, I got fantastic value for money, and needless to say the website now has a shortcut on my desktop. I would have no hesitation in recommending them."
"We inherited a Swedish sink with the house and the drainage just never worked. Eventually I got round to replacing the whole lot. This, coupled with 21296 telescopic P trap, did the job. The sink overflow connects onto the appliance hose connector on the P trap. I just held the overflow pipe in place with a zip tie.
This seems a better bet than the other Screwfix strainer 74806 because the overflow connector on that seems to be causing headaches
Even an amateur like me was able to get the sink draining well and without leaks in about half an hour. What's not to like ?
"What started out as a simple tap change turned into a major overhaul as the drainer sink waste snapped off on removal. Luck for me that screw fix had a direct replacement that was a perfect fit and really looks the job. All that and very good value for money. Screwfix saves the day yet again."
