READ MORE ABOUT OUR Kitchen Sink Wastes

The sink waste trap system is important for tapware primarily for two reasons: drainage and water supply. Including components like a strainer, trap, and drain pipe, this combination works effortlessly to remove wastewater from the sink and creates a clear path to direct it to the drain. Proper drainage is essential to prevent water from pooling in the sink, causing unsanitary conditions and potential damage to the sink and surrounding cabinetry. The full efficiency of your tapware relies on the smooth drain of water after use where the failure of a proper waste system can lead to clogs and malfunctions including slow drainage and even leaks.

Homeowners can optimise the performance and longevity of their tapware, promoting a functional and hygienic kitchen environment with us. Designed for longevity and durability, the kitchen sink strainer, waste and overflow are structured with a robust build that ensures the fittings remain pristine.

The basket waste effectively traps food waste and prevents it from clogging your drain and has a combination of brass and ABS construction. ABS plastic is popular for its strength and impact resistance which makes this an ideal material for applications and fixtures where toughness is required. It can withstand moderate to heavy loads without breaking or deforming, projecting tolerance even against harsh cleaning agents and chemicals. This is also enhanced by its temperature resistance and is generally suitable for use in moderate-temperature environments though might not be ideal for applications requiring high-temperature resistance.

Brass forms the main body of the basket strainer waste and has excellent tensile strength and can withstand heavy loads and pressure. The metal has a protective oxide layer that prevents rust and corrosion, making this ideal for the kitchen where there is constant moisture and vapour exposure. Suitable for both high and low temperature, the resistance enables the fitting to remain pristine without losing its structural integrity.

Stunning Shades of Gold and Finishes

Copper Finish: Copper has a distinct reddish-brown colour with orange undertones which adds depth and visual interest to any space. With resistance to chemical substances, this finish forms a protective layer that prolongs lifespan by preventing oxidation.

Brushed Brass - Gold: This finish provides a warm, rich hue which is close to a golden shade but has a softer, muted tone. The brushed texture of the finish gives it a subtle matte or satin sheen, creating depth and dimension and adds to the functionality by being less prone to visible stains and fingerprints. With grooves or parallel lines, this finish is not reflective as compared to polished finishes and is generally easy to maintain. Avoiding harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners can enable prolonged usability. 

Detailed Specifications and Factors to Consider

The basket strainer waste, sold individually or in a set with the trap and overflow, has a dimension of 90mm with a round structure that suits well with all standard sinks. It works effectively by capturing solid food particles, preventing them from entering the plumbing system. The strainer plug is removable which makes cleaning more accessible and efficient and is compatible with both single and double bowl sinks equipped with an overflow outlet.

A selection, including the copper sink waste, is equipped with an overflow feature, which allows excess water to drain out of the sink if it reaches a certain level. This helps prevent overflowing sinks and potential water damage to surrounding areas. With square and round structures, the overflow is effective during malfunctions like accidental blockages, excessive water flow, or forgetting to turn off the tap. This sink overflow pipe is designed to provide a secondary pathway for water to drain out wastewater when the primary source for draining gets blocked, featuring a horizontal or angled configuration that directs water away from the sink or basin and into the drainage system.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kitchen Sink Waste

1.What fall should a sink waste have?

A sink waste should have a fall of at least 1:40. This means for every 40 units horizontally (inches or centimetres), the pipe should drop 1 unit vertically to ensure proper drainage and prevent water from standing in the pipe.

2.How do I know what size sink plug I need?

To determine the size of the sink plug you need, measure the diameter of the drain hole in your sink. Sink plugs typically range from 1 ½ inches to 2 inches in diameter. Ensure you measure accurately for a snug fit.

3.How do you fix a kitchen sink plug?

To fix a kitchen sink plug:

Remove the plug and inspect it for damage or wear.

Clean the plug and the drain hole to remove any debris that might prevent a good seal.

If the plug is adjustable, try adjusting the height or seal tightness.

If damaged, replace the plug with one of the correct size and type for your sink.

4.Why doesn't my sink plug work?

A sink plug may not work properly if:

It's the wrong size or not correctly fitted, leading to gaps that allow water to drain.

The seal is worn out or damaged.

There's a buildup of debris or limescale on the plug or around the drain hole, preventing a tight seal.

The mechanism controlling the plug (if it's a pop-up type) is faulty or not properly adjusted.
