Trying to fit a cloakroom basin ... and find the waste doesn't seem to
fit any standard plastic bottle trap (which would be hidden in the
The threaded part of the waste (a chrome click clack type) seems to
be about 38mm external diameter. but is too narrow for the thread on a
std plastic bottle trap thread to grip.
With it there is also a smooth "extension tube" (10 cm long, non
threaded about 31mm external diameter) which can screwed onto the
bottom of the waste.
Not sure where my inlaw got it from - Generally, it looks to be good
quality... but as I said doesn't seem to fit the std bottle trap...
I wonder if its some sort of continental fitting? And Ideas on the
simplest way to connect it up?
thanks for your help
Yes, sounds like something Italian or somesuch.
I had this problem when SWMBO ordered a fancy Italian designer kitchen
sink. Basically, the supplied waste would not mate up to anything I
had to hand.
Took it up to Plubmer's Merchant and he took one look at it and said
'Ahh, fancy Italian sink, sir? you'll need to be throwing that supplied
wase in the bin, and take one of these UK standard ones..."
That worked fine. The cut-out in the sink seemed to be the same
standard size, and it accepted the new waste no problem. Looks identical.
That looks useful if the threads match
- excuse my ignorance but when it says "BSP Coupling Flush Spigot 1
1/4" does this mean it is changing BSP to 1 1/4 ... (don't think there
is anything british about the thread on my waste) or converts some
standard european (which is probably what I have) to BSP 1 1/4?
this looks useful as well ... if I have the space .... do u know how
long it is - looks about 4 inches long?
