    Is it possible to get a strainer basket waste for a sink with only a 2" (50mm) aperture? I'm hoping I don't have to replace the sink.

    I have recently moved house and we used to have one of the std 3.5" strainer baskets, but now just have a std waste with a plug. Those awful sink strainers that you place on top of the plug hole just don't cut it.

    I have seen some smaller ones - 60mm, but not 50mm. I think the overall width flange size is 85mm - and I believe I have since something on McAlpines website, but I'm just not sure if its for a 50mm aperture.
    .
    Appreciate anyones help/comments.

    Google Mcalpine. They manufacture a range of products, including wastes. Might have something that would fit your requirements.
