McAlpine Bottle Bath Trap 40mm White
Use these all the time
If you had the choice of a McAlpine bath trap with top access like a shower against any other type this is always the way to go IMO. When you remove the amount of hair that you get with these you will understand why it is so much better than no access.
Quality brass parts on show with plastic behind scenes. Comes with 2 nice little tools to help screw in trap and overflow connections.
BTW the reviewer who commented about the overflow issue- I have not had any issues and fitted a lot of these and if you wanted to, the bottom 'cup' can be 'popped' off with out complete removal.

The lack of space under the bath i was fitting was causing a lot of issues, previous bath fitter had hacked into floor to create space.
This part as it incorporates the bottle fits in perfectly, and gave the room i needed for a t piece to add basin waste to the system.
Solid bit of kit being a chromed brass fitting, and cheap for what it gives you in less stress and hair pulling.
Only issue i had was screwing the overflow pipe to the back of overflow hole, i overcame this by heating end of pipe with a hair dryer to soften the pipe and make it grip.

Shower trap for baths, great.
I purchased this trap to replace a complete botch carried out by a so called bathroom fitter. As a plumber with 35 years experience this product met the standard I have come to expect from Mcalpine products good practical thought out design that works. I've only rated a 4 for performance and reliability due to not having purchased or installed this particular trap previously although don't have any doubts.
