Wastes – if you don’t know what they are, or what their use is for, they can be quite mysterious things. But fear not, we’re explaining exactly what you need to know – nothing more, nothing less! After all, we don’t want to waste your time. (Pun intended!)
What is a waste?
A waste is a piece that acts as the exit for the water that you have used in your basin (you may also know it as a plug/plug hole!) It’s also there to help keep your plumbing ticking along as it should stop blockages too.
What does unslotted basin waste mean?
An unslotted pop up basin waste’s main purpose is dependant on the type of basin you have. If your basin has a built in overflow, then you should purchase a slotted waste. If you basin does not have an overflow, you’ll need to grab an unslotted waste. An overflow is a hole underneath your tap that allows water to drain if it should ‘over flow’ – the clue is in the name! You should make sure you check your basin before purchasing a waste, as the wrong one won’t fit (and that’s a pain in the neck you can easily avoid…)
What is a pop up basin waste?
A pop up basin waste will often be used alongside the term ‘click-clack’ waste. A ‘click-clack’ waste is when you push the stopper down to close it and then again to open it. A pop up basin waste uses a waste lever that you push or pull to raise or lower the stopper.
