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.

Typhoon Vortex 50mm Self Cleaning Shower Waste ReviewsPrevious
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.
The trap is quite shiney plastic. The center grill lifts out so you can get hair out, great if you have long hair like me! We use it with a shallow profile tray and it clears the water well.
This is great with the shower cubicle that I bought, the shower is still going stronger, I have now had it for just over a year, and its fab.
Well what can I say about this shower waste. It works really well in our wafer thin shower tray. Drains water away really quickly.
Does what it says, I had my doubts at first, but it always drains the water away quickly and no unclogging has been nescessary.
cant really say much about this as im not coversant about such items but my plumber said it was good
This simple to use low cost item, simply does what it claims. Very good value.
Had to change this for a bigger one was no problem at all.
Simple idea and works well. Good value for money.
fast and furious waste , just as required
It does what it says on the tin
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.
This shower waste really does do what is says on the tin. The water gathers in the tray (about 25mm deep) and then the vortex forms in the tray and seems to actively suck the water out of the tray. This process repeats whilst showering. I have a 3 bar pump and a shallow tray and even with the shower on maximum flow this trap copes admirably with the water,
