Sometimes even costly cleaning does not help or the siphon is damaged. In this case, only the replacement helps. What a siphon usually costs, and what price differences there are in the individual versions, you will find in this article.
Types of siphons
In principle, one has to differentiate between individual versions in addition to the different siphon types. Above all, the installation location is important:
- Siphons for sink or sink
- Siphons for the drain of the shower
- Siphons for the bath
Prices may vary greatly depending on the installation location. In general, the siphon is not obtained individually, but almost always only as a complete drain set, that is, from the dip tube to the water connection pipe. The siphon is then automatically included as a middle section in the set.
Prices for different versions
The following table gives an example of a small overview of the approximate prices of the different siphon types
|Siphon type||Price approx.|
|Plastic waste set with tube siphon for washbasins and sinks||approx. 6 - 10 EUR|
|Plastic waste set 6 - 10 EUR||waste set, simple design with bottle siphon chrome|
|approx. 7 - 15 EUR||Special versions, such as sets with space-saving siphons|
|approx. 20 - 40 EUR||Shower drain with siphon, flat , depending on version and material|
|approx. 25 - 50 EUR||Bath drainage system with overflow system|
|approx. 40 - 160 EUR||Special siphons|
Especially for floor-level showers or very low shower trays, particularly low siphons and drainage systems are required. In this case, it is often necessary to resort to a special, precisely fitting system, which may also be more expensive.
Siphons for urinals
There are special siphons for urinals. Usually siphon siphons are used, which you get from about 30 EUR in the trade. They are usually mounted flush. Waterless urinals, on the other hand, have built-in oil siphons. However, these are generally permanently installed parts that only the professional can swap.
Tips & TricksWhenever possible, always make sure to buy a siphon with a cleaning hole. They make it much easier to clean the siphon. In addition, the risk is excluded that the siphon could leak unnoticed after cleaning.
