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.
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: would fit!!!
Very good. Changed the trap in a complete shower cubicle as these never drain correctly
Pros: Easy to install
Simple idea and works well. Good value for money.
Pros: Work as expected
Cons: None as yet
Receieved in time anticipated, and in good condition. This product has been installed and performs as detailed in instructions,no more showering in paddling pool.Has solved a long term problem and will definately be used in future on other projects.
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.
Bathroom Project. Plumbworld products are excellent value and quality after searching the web for days. i would say the best in the market. Highly recommended.
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.
