The piece of metal with many holes that are used to prevent debris from going down the drain in your bathroom is commonly referred to as the "drain cover" or "drain strainer." These terms are often used interchangeably to describe the same object. Some people may also refer to it as a "drain filter" or "drain sieve." The specific terminology used may vary depending on regional or individual preferences, but any of these terms should generally be understood to refer to the same item.
