Carron Phoenix Revolution Pop Up Plug Maintenance

This is the pop-up plug by Carron Phoenix that comes now as standard in most of their sinks.

It has a sleek design and you can open or close the plug by pushing down on it.

Carron Phoenix offer a two year warranty on these plugs so here are a few pratical tips if you want to increase longevity of these plugs,

– never take apart to clean, use a washing up brush instead to clean

– never put in a dishwasher (it causes rubber to perish).

– never wash something in a sink that has sand or grit attached as it does affect the pop up mechanism on the plug.

    why cant you take the plug apart to clean, i must have a 3rd party plug in my carron phoenix sink because it simply unscrews its dead simple & so much easier to clean. is it not possible to do this with the original plug??

      HI Laurence I don’t know what plug you have in your own sink but if it is a 3rd party plug, then you would also have a different cup as well (which the plug fits into). We don’t manufacture these parts. This is the way it comes with the sink. I have same plug at home and have no issue cleaning it using a washing up brush.

    Hi, After a lot of searching managed to find Carron Phoenix Revolution Pop Up Plug (V4) which appears to be what I an after having checked the dimensions given on your site. Our kitchen was installed 2012 with Carron corner double sink unit. One of the sinks could not hold water so I investigated and come to the conclusion the rubber washer/seal on one waste was 50mm diameter (and leaked) the other is about 55mm diameter and seals ok. I also noticed that the 50mm seal turned upwards and 55mm seal turns downwards. My question is can I purchase a rubber seal only at this time to prove if I am correct if I am then I can purchase complete units as replacements as I am sure if one has gone it will not be long before the second one will fail.

      HI Roger
      we only supply complete plugs as that is how they are supplied to us by Carron Phoenix. I don’t know how you are cleaning your plug but , having them also myself, I do know that grit can affect them and then they might stop working , but a good careful clean can get them working again. We also advise to not put in a dishwasher. Here is the link to the plug itself if you wish to purchase.

      You can remove the entire plug as in the picture. But do not take the plug apart to clean.
