If you’re buying a new basin, bath or looking to update your bathroom with a modern look, the bath or basin waste is no longer just the simple rubber plug on a chain. Although every waste basically functions to block water and allow it to be drained away, there are now many styles and types to choose from, so selecting the right type of waste is even more important. An ill-fitting waste may lead to issues such as the overflow not working, cause flooding or damage to your bathroom ware.
These days, baths and basins sometimes include a waste as part of the package but there are many which still require you to add your own. A crucial step before choosing a waste is to work out whether your bath or basin has an overflow. This will help determine the type of waste you can safely install. If you have an overflow, a slotted waste will allow overflow water to drain properly. An unslotted waste is watertight so it is best paired with a bath or basin without overflow.
