These wastes suit basins with a 32-35mm opening for waste. They have a 32mm male BSP thread. To comply with Australian Standards, they need to be adapted to 40mm to accommodate traps and the drainage system. Accordingly an adaptor from 32mm to 40mm (32x40 trap adaptor) is required.
These are DZR brass and comply with all Australian Standards. They seal with quality rubber components.
These wastes do NOT accommodate basins with overflow.
When purchasing your bath or basin, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s important to consider the function and aesthetics of the waste outlet.
Wastes are available in various configurations and finishes, each with different qualities and intended uses.
Pop-up and pop-down wastes are the two most popular choices, but which one to choose?
pop-down wastes for all bath installations
pop-up or pop-down wastes for basin installations.
Pop-Up Wastes Pop-Up wastes sit flush when they are in the sealed position and proud when in the open or draining position.
The 'plug' is screwed on to a plunger mechanism that is built into the centre of the outlet. The plug is actuated by pressing on the centre, engaging a ratchet mechanism to seal the plug or releasing to drain. When bathing, particularly for small children, a wayward step can easily open the plug. Open pop-up wastes can also pose a tripping hazard.
Bath wastes encounter a variety of materials - hair, bath toys, jewellery etc - and the waste and plunger mechanism are therefore more prone to clogging and fouling.
When clearing blockages and/or retrieving items, accessibility is more limited in a pop-up waste due to the fixed plunger mechanism in the centre of the waste outlet.
If the waste ever needs to be replaced, access is required to both inside and underneath the vessel. This is commonly possible in a basin, but rarely in a bath.
