Sink & Washing Machine Trap 40mm
Another nasty FloPlast trap
I bought this because it was the only one in stock with an appliance connector. A few weeks later it was blocked so I took it apart to empty it. So far, so good.
Putitng it back together, the O-rings are so skimpy and soft that they won't stay on their raised lips making it impossible to reassemble without the seal bulging out and failing.
Add to that the top nut on FloPlast traps never seem to fit the outlet of the waste - you can't tighten them enough. Just as they come tight they pop and slip back one thread.
Replaced with a proper McAlpine one.
FloPlast's push-fit stuff is fine, as are their pan connectors and lots of other stuff - just their traps are such rubbish.

Buy cheap buy twice
Bought one of these to replace the cheap rubbish that came with the sink.
Then replaced this leaky rubbish with a McAlpine trap that didnt leak
Bite the bullet and buy McAlpine before you try and scimp on a job - saves time and ultimatley money

Great value for you money. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

The appliance spigot is lower than the waste outlet, therefore all waste water will try to exit via the appliance pipe rather than the waste outlet.
