    I am having trouble finding replacement decorative overflow covers for 2 bathroom basins in a house I am working in. The customer says they are common in the states and on the continent and can't understand why our sinks don't have them.
    She says they just push in the hole and make the overflow look pretty.
    Before you say you must not block the overflow, I asked her about that and she says they don't block the water flow at all.
    Please can anyone help? :(

    I think you might just have saved my bacon, thanks. I never knew such things existed, I will talk to the posh lady in the morning and let you know what happens. :D

    I got in touch with the supplier you recomended to me and they are sending me some insert/covers.
    By the way if you ask them they will do a good deal on orders over 10 units.
    But my customer is right they would make any sink look good.
    I'm going to start offering these to all my new customers.
    They only cost £4 each inc P&P. from http://www.trovehousetrading.co.uk/ I'm on to a good thing here thank you very much for you help.
