    alright chaps. Just out of curiosity, I’ve seen a fair few of these traps lately and it got me thinking. How the hell do you clear hair or debris form them? There’s no removable cup or anything?

    Oh ok. I certainly didn’t know that. Self cleaning? So if there was a build of hair or the like it’d have to be full strip down. Bloody hell

    I only use them if the waste run is short and straight, or if the tray is raised, or if customer is bald!
    Otherwise I just buy a top access one and don’t use the “twisto” ; if there’s a problem in the future it will only be remembered that “ you fitted the waste” not that you warned them and they wanted to use what came with it.

    I always use the mcalpine traps. Easy maintenance and never give me any trouble. I can’t recommend them enough. The spigot is at a good angle too
