Sprung Bath Waste
Modern bath waste looks very smart and satisfying to use. Easy to use for elderly without bending down.
Fitted at home. Our own first one needed replacing after a couple of years (sprung catch not holding it down)but with a large family it saw a lot of use.
Wipe a little Fernox LS-X quick cure silicone between each sealing surface and water tight is a virtual given first time.

Difficult to seal
It looks good and works well but is tricky to fit.
Must use sealant above and below hole in bath.
Must use PTFE tape on thread where back-nut fits otherwise water will run through thread.
Use IRWIN Quickgrip or similar clamp to hold bottom of thread whilst tightening nut.
The overflow doesn't project far which is good when used with shower mixer tap.

Good product, worth purchasing
I bought this as a replacement for my existing plug/chain/waste, when updating our bathroom. This was easy to fit and works as you would expect. As others have said the plug does sit a few mm proud of the waste when closed but it doesn't matter, also you do need to seal all mating surfaces (back nut/rubber washers) to prevent leaks, first fit leaked when not sealed. My only other minor gripe is the the main body of the waste was about 30 mm longer than the previous one, so I had to buy a flexible waste union to marry the waste up. Other than that I would recommend 100%.
