Basin Wastes

Basin wastes, otherwise known as plugs, can be applied to stop water escaping the bowl and released to drain water. Opt for a slotted basin waste if your basin has an overflow or choose unslotted for those without.

Attached to the end of a basin pipe, bottle traps are a clever solution to help prevent the return of harmful gases and smells from the sewers, keeping your bathroom odour free and safe for use.
