Takeaway: Nice finish and durable construction, easy to use but no install instructions, no leaks.

I bought this drain plug to replace a lever style stopper which broke because the tab inside was made of cheap plastic. My new faucet doesn't have a hole for the stopper lever so I had to get a press to pop-up kind like this but actually I prefer it more because there's no plastic used in the drain plug assembly. It's entirely made of corrosion resistant brass and has a beautiful oil rubbed bronze finish. Make sure to measure the distance between the bottom of your sink to your p-trap because the tail pipe ended up being about 1/4" too short for my plumbing; I was able to extend the pipes to make it fit.

There aren't any instructions included with the unit, so I had to research how to remove my old drain and install this one on my own. Because it comes with a silicone flange, you may not need to use plumber's putty, but if you experience leaks, you can add a ring of plumber's putty below the flange in lieu of the washer. The installation was pretty straight forward and afterward I didn't find any leaks, even without the plumber's putty. The drain works as expected, with the sink filling up with the drain is closed, and the water from the overflow flows into the holes underneath the stopper. The drain cleared fine when you press the center to pop-up the plug. If the drain is clogged, you can unscrew the stopper top and remove any blockage from inside easily. Overall, I'm happy with the stopper's performance, although I do wish it were available in a brushed nickel finish to match my faucet, but it still looks great.

  1. Great video on installing a pop up drain. I love the faucet in this video and wondering what company is it made by?

  2. The sink faucet is called Gibbon, by Purelux, but unfortunately it is no longer available for sale. I found a similar style here at Amazon: https://geni.us/fCE8E [Amazon Affiliate Product Link]
