Hi Folks,

Could you help please, I've had a new wet room installed with what I think is a McAlpine trap but there it looks to me like there is a part missing - there appears to be a gap where hair and scum and grunge can and is building up and I don't see how it can be cleaned very easily.

Is there a piece missing do you think, like the one in the attached exploded view of the trap?

Any help would be very much appreciated before I accept the job as finished.

I think the part you have mentioned is for installers to prevent anything falling down, such as broken tile, adhesive etc. You should have the grille part, do you?

I have the grill - it just seems like there must be a seal or something missing as I can't see how anyone would design a trap which has crevices and holes that can catch crud and can't easily be cleaned. I can see all that crud through the grate, it looks minging and it's a few weeks old.
