There are various types of basins ranging in size and function from hand rinsing to surgical use. A standard basin for domestic applications for bathrooms and cloakrooms consists of a bawl soap tray, weir overflow and holes for taps and outlets. It may be supported by cast iron brackets screwed to the wall, a carbel which is an integral part of the basin built into the wall or a floor pedestal which conceals the pipework for water supply through 13mm pillar taps for both hot and cold water. A standard nominal diameter waste outlet with a slot to receive the integral overflow connects to a strap and waste pipe of the same diameter. A plug and chain normally controls outflow but some fittings have a popup waste facility.
