There are three basic waste kit types – the plug and chain waste, click clack waste and the pop up waste. The plug and chain waste is the most popular and traditional type of waste kit. It comes with a ball chain or a link chain. The retainer plug and chain type has a plug which fits into the overflow grill which keeps it out of the way when not in use. A click clack waste on the other hand is one with sprung plug which works like the modern and contemporary basin wastes. The name click clack is apt as it functions likewise. For instance, pushing the plug will cause it to click shut and pushing it again will make it click open. The overflow hole is covered with a chrome cover which does not block it but simply sits proudly on top of it.
The pop up waste type has a chrome dial fitted on top of the overflow and a cable runs from the dial on the outside of the tub to the plug. It operates by turning this dial which in turn moves and operates the plug. The pop up and the click clack types usually do not fit the traditional freestanding bath. The plug and chain waste usually connect with the help of threaded bolts, which are long enough to fit in the thickness of the overflow and plug hole.
Fitting a trap
The detached bath tubs with either feet or without one often come with a standard six bath trap which may not fit in between the tub and the floor. A hole can be made under the tub to fit the trap if it is possible to go into the floor but if the floor is concrete, an ultra shallow or shallow trap will be needed to fit which can be procured from a specialist. Therefore, accessories, like bathroom basins, detached tubs and other stylish faucets and taps, have their own requirements which need to be looked into in order to have them installed perfectly and an expert ‘s help would be needed.
Different sets and systems have different requirements. And one must install such accessories only after consulting the experts as they have the right knowledge and expertise which can help you get your desired accessories installed the right way. Consult with the experts, buy the best accessories and vanities for your bath and give your bathroom functional as well as beautiful.
