I was hesitant to install a shallow sink with no overflow, but I liked how unique and modern the wading pool style of sink was that I decided to take the chance and try it out. It looks amazing!
I would like to stress the importance of selecting the proper faucet and drain for this sink.
If using a very tall faucet that has a strong water stream, there would be some potential for splashing. The faucet I installed was a tad bit too tall. It was a traditional sized vessel sink faucet at about 8.5" spout height. It does work fine with minimal splashing, but I would stay an ideal spout height for this faucet would be at 5.5" to 6.5." The spout reach should be 5.5" to hit the center of the sink.
Try to find a pop-up drain that will drain the water quickly. Some of the vessel "grid" drains can be very slow and will likely not work with the wading pool style. There is no overflow hole on this sink and it is shallow so you will have to be mindful of not over flooding it. You'll need to keep your pipes free flowing more so than with a usual sink. I have not had any problems with this myself.
This sink installs like a typical self rimming drop-in bathroom sink. The cut out dimensions are 14 15/16" by 17 5/16" wide. I installed this on a typical sized 22 inch bathroom counter and had room for the faucet hole behind the sink still. No installation issues - it was very straight forward.
I get a lot of compliments on it. It is elegant without being gaudy how some vessel sinks can be. I included a video showing the water on full blast with the sink.

The Watercove Wading Pool Vessel Sink is a beautiful, functional sink by Kohler. It has sleek lines, a modern vessel sink shape, and durable, smooth finish. Take note it is designed to be used with a wall mount or counter mount faucet. We are using a counter mount faucet made for vessel sinks and are pleased with the overall look. I plan to add an identical sink to my husband's vanity as well but wanted to try this one out first. The design doesn't disappoint.
