Types of Bathtub Drains
When it comes to designing the bathroom of your dreams, certain items are likely at the top of your list. For example, you’ve probably contemplated what type of sink and vanity you want. However, every single detail counts when pulling together a bathroom design. For this reason, it is important to think about even something as small as bathtub drains.
Here at Kingston Brass, we carry high-quality products for your bathroom. Browse our array of premium bathtub drains as you determine the style and functional design of your bathroom. Check out a few style options below to help you make your choice.
Clawfoot Tub and Overflow Drain
If you have a clawfoot tub, or you plan to invest in one of these timeless pieces soon, consider a specialized clawfoot tub and overflow drain. This bathtub drain set will pair perfectly with the functional design of a clawfoot tub. Adding the overflow drain means you never have to worry about leaving the water running too long as you draw your bath.
Lift and Turn Bathtub Drains
A lift and turn drain is a classic bathtub drain style. This drain features a stopper attached to the drain. The stopper has a small handle, which makes it easy to lift and turn the drain stopper. When the stopper is turned in one direction, it lifts and opens the drain. Conversely, when turned the other direction, it will go back to resting over the drain, stopping up the tub.
A tub strainer drain features a drain cover that contains large holes, allowing for draining when desired. The tub strainer drain has a lever that, when flipped, will close the drain. The mesh style of this tub drain makes it great for catching and stopping large items from washing down the drain.
Tip-Toe Bathtub Drains
A tip-toe tub drain is perhaps one of the easiest bathtub drains to operate. With a simple push on the drain, the drain will lift up and allow the water to drain. With another push, the drain will close, stopping water from escaping the tub.
Lift and Lock
Very similar in style to a lift and turn drain, a lift and lock quickly locks into place after you lift the drain stopper. This style of drain also features a small handle that makes it easy to grab onto the drain. By dropping the drain back down, it locks into place to stop water from leaving the bathtub basin.
