Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lower seal does not seal On reading the reviews this product seemed to either have 5 stars or 1 stars - so I was chancing it for a £5 whether I get a good or bad one. Identical to most of the 1 star reviews I also found the lower seal / joint to leak immediately. Although the seal fits over the 90 Deg bend side ok - it does not fit in to the recess on the U side when tightened up. On inspection (and trying) you can see the recess is far too small to get the seal in - it will never go in. Who wants to put sealant on and bodge-it? - not me. Off to get the McAlpine version now and file the Floplast one in the 'round cabinet'

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable - avoid Undid swivel connection of U bend to adjust, re rightened and unable to stop dripping leak. The rubber seal is small, had irretrievably distorted and not up to the job. The other seals no better. Made down to a price and a false economy given time wasted on this. I got better results cannibalising an old 20 year fitting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose Fitted this and went to tighten up the collar nearest the bottom of the bend - and it threaded itself, resulting in not enough compression to stop the leakage. Temporary fix of some sealant on the thread and connector worked - but I worried about what happened next time I need to remove the washing machine hose. So threw this away and bought the McAlpine one - much more robust. Annoyed with Screwfix for selling something so unfit for purpose!! Can't get money back, as I had to cut the long pipe to fit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Very poor quality leaked immediately. The thread failed and the seal twisted which made it useless. Bought the more expensive replacement which sealed no problem as the nuts and seals were a much better quality. Do not bother with this its a complete waste of time and money.

Fitting to existing waste outlet

I have a waste outlet pipe at the wall. This previously took a McAlpine Multifit 40mm compression fitting without any issue. I cannot get a decent connection with this floplast fitting. Am I missing something here? Is there an adapter required?
Asked by: ArbitraryNickname

I see someone above asked about the stand pipe that fits into this trap and was told 40mm fits. I am having great difficulty getting a 40mm pipe to fit into the opening. any chance that the stand pipe should be 32mm?

Asked by: Speno
The up stand is designed to connect to 40mm push fit pipe. You will need to make sure that you are not using 40mm solvent weld pipe as this is actually slightly bigger than 40mm push fit pipe.

The waste hose from the washing machine sits in the 600mm upstand.
