Oh boy am I getting sick of this bathroom fittings choosing.

 

So, sinks/basins without overflows? Good/Bad?

 

Pro's

no dirt trap

no need for a fancy cover (i don't like just a hole!)

cleaner lines

 

Cons

Flooding!!

 

But is that con such an issue in an adult only house? I don't have a habit of leaving taps on and wondering off whilst a sink fills.

I think there is more of an argument with a bath where you're likely to leave the room as it fills.

 

Thoughts?

 

Is it time for a G&T yet?

I didn't even know it was an option! I thought all water 'containers' in the house had an overflow... I think I would have them 'just in case'... YOU may not leave a tap on with a flannel blocking the plug hole but......

I prefer the look without as well - there is only me, and I have never had a problem where the overflow has been necessary .  

However, I am getting older and I do walk out of rooms to fetch something and forget to go back.

I haven't got quite to the stage of choosing yet but I am looking and I feel your pain.

Pour me something tall and strong
Make it a hurricane before I go insane
It's only half past twelve but I don't care
It's five o'clock somewhere

I half remember that an over flow is a building regs requirement? ort perhaps it's a water regs thing? Either way our BCO didn't object to a basin without one.

 

There are some fancy waste outlets that have a hidden overflow built into the waste. It involves an inverted syphon/loop of pipe hidden in the wall or base unit.

I'll just mention we had a bath tap fail and turn itself on full flow in the middle of the night.  How would that have ended if the plug was in, there was no overflow, and you were not there?

Lay off the G&T's and you won't forget to turn the taps off ;)  :D

I'd love to call him something, but I think I'll just call it a day!!!!
