    I am replacing the seals on washers on my sink waste trap. Can the 38mm anti slip ring/washer be bought alone as there is nothing wrong with the actual fittings. I can find the rubber seals and I can see 38mm trap washers at Toolstation. Are these right or can red/blue ones be bought?

    And why are they red/blue? Do you get hot/cold wastes?

    Most traps can have the seals replaced plumbing and heating merchants stock replacements the colour of the plastic type ring is not relative different manufacturers use a mix of materials , cheers kop

    Thank you for your reply. I figured to colour was unimportant, just thought as they are supplied coloured that coloured replacements would be easy to find. It seems not. As a DIYer I stick to ScrewFix and ToolStation.
