Easy to Follow Directions
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The directions to install this IdealLav drain were straight forward and photos helped. The only problem we encountered was the rod clip would not hold the clevis onto the rod ball assembly which we simply added a clamp to. We wanted this drain because it matches the one in our bathtub and they look much nicer flushed and are easier to clean.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This sink drain replacement kit is very nice as shown in pics it come with everything you need to install a drain or replace one with excellent quality products, come with easy to follow instructions for easy installation..
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Great quality drain, received it just as expected. The craftsmanship is great, I will order more of this brand in the future. IdealLav Lavatory Drain is the best and easiest drain I've ever installed.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Its super easy to install, I was able to do so without any tools or assistance, although it does come with easy to follow instructions. The tube is one whole piece, which limits any possibilities of losing water. Its a strong material that should last a long time. It seals perfectly, not letting any water seep through and above in the sink the filter fits well and is pretty.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I chose this drain because my old one wouldn't seal. I left It laying there for my husband to Install until i was finally forced to give it a try. I watched videos online to insure it was as easy as the packaging instructions states, and what do you know, I did it! Easy for a novice! Works great and looks great. Good quality.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Ideal Lavatory Drain is a well made, economical replacement drain & stopper for lavatory sinks. This design makes assembly & installation very easy and allows a great amount of adjustment to fit almost any sink. Also, the removable grid/strainer is a nice feature.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m impressed with Watco - IdealLav™ Lavatory Drain and it was super easy to install and only took around 20 minutes. I really like that it holds water well and doesn’t let anything slip through like hair, jewelry or anything else for that matter. It looks great in my bathroom vanity and really matched up with my faucet. It’s 1 1/4” diameter x 8 1/2 in length and comes with the internal stopper, grid and grid strainer and also has a limited 5 year warranty. They do have a website with video instructions for anyone that may need them for help installing this product. This lavatory drain works so much better than the one I had before so I would definitely highly recommend this product.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Watco IdeaLav Lavatory Drain arrived as described. I needed a new drain to stop all clogging that was going on in my shower/tub. With four daughters and myself, we have clogs often from hair build up or such as the other day, I found a plastic case for a razor in the drain My drain to be replaced was an open drain push down plug and sucked.However, this was a great purchase so far! The drain fit perfectly. Easy to install and the grid pattern stops everything from going into the drain! Thanks Watco!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a well put together drain, it is one piece the instructions were easy to understand and we had the drain in place in about 20 minutes.The Watco IdealLav drain pretty much just drops in! So simple. it has both a strainer and a stopper it seem like the water drains faster which is a plus. I will use this brand for any future drain replacments.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Replaced one of the master sink drains with this kit. Works really well. You do need some plumbers puddy if you’re doing it yourself. I did wish it came with multiple drain cover types, but the chrome one included is modern enough.
