I'm in the planning stages of remodeling our powder room; trying to select fixtures. We want to get a faucet that has no pop-up-drain assembly , so we'll need to get a separate drain for the sink.
Given that the drain will be independent of the faucet, we could get a clicker style drain, either with or without an overflow. There is a matching drain to the faucet, but it is without an overflow which kind of seems like an accident waiting to happen . We could do a clicker with an overflow , but with any of these, you would have to stick your hand through the water to actually drain it. I'm not sure what I think about that.
Finally, we could just get a grid style drain that would just stay open . We wouldn't be able to fill the basin, but I'm not sure that it matters. Have any of you installed something like this for your customers or heard complaints about that later? These can be had with or without an overflow, do it really matter for this style of drain, which can't be closed anyway?
Thanks for your help,
