Typhoon Vortex 50mm Self Cleaning Shower Waste


Typhoon Vortex 50mm Self Cleaning Shower Waste

If you’ve ever spent time with a sink plunger trying to unclog a shower which simply refuses to drain, then you’ll immediately appreciate the benefits of this typhoon vortex shower waste. Unlike a traditional shower waste which allows the water to drain straight down, the design of this shower waste forces the water into a whirlpool, which means the shower tray drains more effectively and won’t get clogged up. This whirlpool effect is strong enough to deal with flow rate of up to 36 litres a minute, so is a great choice for even the strongest of power showers.

Value For Money

You’d expect to have to pay far more for a cleverly designed item like this which will save you all of the effort of cleaning and unblocking the shower, but that’s not the case. This waste offers outstanding value for money and will fit into any standard 40mm outlet in your shower tray. In fact, you’d probably spend more on a sink plunger to unclog your traditional waste.

  • Extra quick flow rate - 36 Litres per minute
  • Self-cleaning and un-cloggable
  • Chrome plated ABS flat grate
  • 40mm horizontal outlet, to be glued or fitted together
  • Adaptor supplied
  • This item starts to drain upon a 15mm head of water

Typhoon Vortex Self Cleaning Shower Waste

With an ordinary waste water drains from the tray through gravity, with a vortex waste water gathers in the tray to a certain level where the waste actively sucks the water from the tray in a whirlpool type action.

Pros: compatible with higher quality plug holes, dead easy to fit, does what it says on the tin, packed with care so that the parts cannot be damag, very compact - great for low clearance areas

Cons: plug hole and grille poor quality

On opening the parcel I was a little disappointed by this item as it was instantly apparent that the grille and plug-hole components were of the "budget" plastic variety.
However, when I ordered I suspected that this may be the case and so I had also ordered PWB651 - a really solid high quality metal plug-hole - and as I gingerly tested that the two really did fit together I started to smile as they do fit, perfectly, and so I have been able to install this with the parts that are seen and subjected to daily use substituted with the metal plug-hole and the part that does the business all very neatly under the shower tray and fitted in moments.
It lives up to its name - Vortex - and gurgles a fair treat, although the fact that the water doesn't start to flow away instantly is slightly disconcerting with a power shower and shallow tray!
The quality of the plastic - i.e. all of it - is really quite low for the price, but the ease of installation and convenience of being "non block-able" more than outweigh this and make it excellent value.

5/ 5

Pros: ease of installation

Recent loft conversion allowed for installation of en-suite shower room due to limited space and requirement to get good drainage from shower.
Installed this with ease to stone resin tray works well at removing the water.
Best bit no moving parts.
