Our eyecatching chrome style waste pipes are used to convey waste water, often referred to as foul drainage, to the above or below ground drainage system. Chrome style waste is commonly used when the installation is in plain view, such as in a public bathroom or hotel room.
Polypropylene chrome style waste pipes are available in two size options. 32mm is generally used for washbasins and bidets, 40mm is used for baths, showers, kitchen sinks and dishwashers.
This chrome style compression waste system is manufactured in the UK to BS EN 1451. It is commonly used to connect waste pipes of differing materials or those made by different manufacturers.
When making a compression joint, cut the pipe square and remove any burrs. Unscrew the nut from the fitting and remove it along with the washer and the rubber seal. Place these three components over the end of the pipe first the nut, then the washer followed by the seal. The dished side of the rubber seal should face away from the nut and towards the fitting. Push the pipe into the fitting as far as it will go, slide the seal and washer forward into position in the fitting and tighten the nut.
The joint can be taken apart again if required, but always check that the rubber seal has not been damaged in any way as this will cause the joint to leak.
