Rated 5 out of 5Â by aPickyEngineer Nice sink
Looks very nice when installed. I like that it does NOT come with faucet holes pre-drilled (it does have 5 dimples on its under side where they would normally go). This way I was able to choose where and how many holes I needed. Typically a 1.25-inch hole saw would be used for your average faucet.
The sink did come with a 3.5" white plastic drain fitting and stopper. The drain fitting came with two gaskets, one black thick one and one white thinner one. The black thick one goes below the sink tub between the black drain fitting nut and the tub. I tried the white thinner one between the drain fitting flange and the inside surface of the tub but in my opinion it was both too thick and too wide (O.D.) to allow the drain fitting to fit properly. If this upper gasket is used, the drain fitting will sit 1/16" to 1/8" "proud" of the bottom inner surface of the tub and prevent the tub from draining completely and causing an area where sediment will build up. I removed and discarded the upper white gasket and instead went with the more traditional 1/4" ring of plumbers putty around the drain fitting. When the fitting was tightened down and the excess putty squeezed out and cleaned away, the drain fitting was well sealed and very slightly below the inside surface of the tub.
The other thing I did that helped make for a clean installation was, after I figured where in the counter opening the tub would sit, I removed the tub and outlined the four sides of the cutout with four strips of masking tape. I set the tub down onto the masking tape and cut the tape around the edge of the tub with an X-acto knife. I lifted out the tub and peeled away the inner portion of the tape leaving a masked ring of tape that exactly matched the outside edge of the tub. I ran a 1/8" bead of silicone caulk 1/4" around the inside perimeter of the tape and set the tub down into the caulk. I snugged the tub down into the caulk using the supplied nylon screws and clips and then peeled the remaining tape (and any caulk that squeezed out) up from around the perimeter of the tub.

Maybe I misread the Product Summary. It was manufactured with a fiberglass type of product. Very brittle, will not stand up to years of use as a utility sink. I purchased it instead of a plastic white unit because it was a deep sink with a variety of colors available. One very fine hairline crack was visible when it arrived, but upon installation I discovered four additional cracks. The rim also is slightly bowed all of the way around the perimeter, so it does not sit flush on a perfectly level countertop. This purchase was a disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by handyman Worthwhile upgrade!!!
Easy upgrade from the original "plastic" utility tub. The only problem is the fact that my counter top is too thick for the hold down clips to attach. I guess that is why they invented clear caulk to seal it down. looks great and the hard finish on the sink should keep it looking good for years to come.

I bought this sink and when I got it found that the color was not uniform. If this was real "gray granite", I'd be happy about that, but since this is a speckled look, I have to say that there were spots with less speckling, and it looked "blotchy" to me - so maybe it was just a bad color lot. I returned it and got a similar sink (same brand, but different color) and it was much better (Tahiti Desert color). I would recommend this sink only because there are so few non-white or off-white laundry sinks on the market.
