How to measure a drain

Before you order a drain strainer, basket, drain lock, or other plumbing product, it is imperative that you measure your drain before ordering.  Failure to measure may result in a product that does not fit or work properly.

Remember, for any product that goes in a drain, you will first need to remove the drain cover/grate before measuring.  Then measure the diameter at the top of the drain hole.  When in doubt, round up to the nearest size.
