Swivel Basin Waste
This is a good solid product which replaced a faulty pop- up waste. The only real issue I can foresee with it is when the time comes to replace the O ring surrounding the plug - might have to get physical with it!

Decent Quality and Value
Used this to replace a jammed solid metal plug insert, this one has rubber ring which is better. This is a good value replacement, decent quality and very easy to fit. Bear in mind these things have a lifespan but if you keep them clean and grit free they should last for years. As the first revier said, the body length is shorter so take this into account. As usual thank you Screwfix for having this in stock at my local depot. I honestly dont know how other merchants stay in business.

Quality but think first...
Guys, this is a quality product and the design is tried and trusted. Much more reliable than a click-clack and much cleaner than a plug.
But take three things into account when you fit it;
1. You can get this slotted and unslotted and you need to get the right one.
2. In most applications this will not seal at the lower end without some sealant. I favour the amazing Plumber's Gold by Ever Build (cheap and superb). This is not a criticism of this product by the way, this is so of nearly all types of basin waste units of this type. It's not so much the product as it is the sinks they have to go into.
3. Check the length of your old one and make sure you can use the length of this one. This one is about 75mm from the underside of the flange. That is a just a little on the short side for these.

The product is useless in that you cannot remove it like a conventional plug, to clean the waste! Can't even get my little finger down there. No room.
Don't people clean their sinks anymore?
I should imagine this wouldn't last as long as a conventional one either.
What if something gets stuck down there?
I expect these are popular with those doing up nasty cheap properties to rent out. Good enough for those that can't afford to buy i suppose.
just an aside - if you are doing up a property to rent out - use good quality products as they last longer and work out cheaper and less hassle with problems in the long run. Please don't go with the mentality that tis 'good enough for them'.
