Slop hopper sink or sluice sink
This Slop hopper, also referred to as slop or sluice sinks (the newer term), are used to empty and fill pails as well as rinsing out mops. These units can be mostly found in hospitals, clinics, industrial or commercial laundry or cleaning rooms.

Plumbing fittings are not included as they are proprietary to the installation method specifications and the plumbing in the building. Please consult your plumber to connect the correct plumbing fittings. Note the flush valve is optional and are quoted separately. You may use your own flush valves. We recommend the following two types of flushing systems.
Slop hopper with flush valve specifications:
- Walcro 106T – 38 mm water supply flush valve or
- Walcro 104T with isolating valve, 38 mm water supply flush valve flush pipe connected to CP on brass adapter (Plumbing fittings not included in units).
Make sure when using a flush valve that the municipal water supply does not exceed 3-6 bar during the night. If it is suspected that the water supply is higher than 6 bar a pressure reducing valve must be installed. Any dirt can also adversely affect the long term operation of flush valves. Please install an inline strainer such as WC-STR-20 or WC-STR-25 to prevent dirt particles damaging the mechanism rendering the slop hopper unusable.
Slop hopper with high level cistern specifications:
This unit can be adapted to flush using 11 liter stainless steel high level cistern fitted with Supa-Flush Valve and pull chain, 41 mm diameter stainless steel flush pipe and 41 mm chrome plated coupling which is reduced on one end to fit the 38 mm connection on the unit. The high level cistern is ideal when municipal water supply is not reliable or where there is not enough pressure to operate a standard flush valve. In most cases the high level cistern is used in rural areas. The cistern can also be filled with an external water tank.
Tap bracket to fit under a wall mounted tap to avoid heavy bucket load on taps.

Recommended flush valves
Recommended tap or trigger spray
Although wall mounted bib taps are installed with slop hoppers it is recommended that a simple trigger spray is installed. This makes it easy for users to clean out bedpans without spilling or holding the bedpans in position. The whole system just becomes more hygienic and efficient.
