Hi,

I've a Sprung Pop Up Waste fitted in our bathroom basin but as it does'nt actually spring up I am looking to replace this with an alternative version (which i have already purchased). Can someone please advise if there is any special way of removing the old waste from the sink.

Regarding fitting of the new unit I have noticed that there was a previous discussion about this.


Thanks.

Easiest way is to use a set of pump pliers under the basin, undo the large nut closest to the basin with the trap still in place, this will help stop the whole waste from turning as you undo the nut.

On some sprung wastes the plug section will unscrew anti clockwise if you can use your thumbs push down and turn,

if you can do this you can remove the waste by using two screw drivers crossing over each other from the top and through the holes in the outlet
to hold the waste while you undo the bottom nut.


Good luck.

I have what I would call a Sprung pop-up waste - it is called a Click-Clack pop-up waste made by Wirquin

could be one of these?

Spring is within Plug part rather then waste.

it changes the length of the "shaft" that clips into the waste at the bottom and the seal at the top - You push the top down with your foot, shaft goes to shorter length and plug is sealed.
Push it down again and shaft goes to longer length and plug stands pround a few mil, allowing water to empty.
Push it again, .... you get the idea.

Click closed, Clack open?

I have a showerbath and find this works very well.
