Pop-Up Drains With Overflow Vs. No Overflow

Pop-Up Drains With Overflow Vs. No Overflow

WHAT IS A POP UP DRAIN?

A pop-up drain is a drain that gives you an option to seal your drain to hold water by simply pushing on it to close and to open. Pop-up drains are designed to come in two different options “with overflow” or ”without overflow” openings. They are simple to use and quick to install.

WHAT IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN “WITH OVERFLOW” AND “WITHOUT OVERFLOW” DRAINS?

An overflow opening is a small hole drilled in the top of the threaded portion of the drain that allows overflow water from the sink to enter the drain pipe. If your sink features an overflow, it is very important to purchase a drain with an overflow opening so that your sink and drain function properly. If your sink does not feature an overflow it cannot be paired with a drain with an overflow opening.

*TIP:
