Sinks... what you need to know

| Return|

A sink (also sinker, hand basin, and washbasin) is a bowl-shaped plumbing fixture used for washing hands, for dishwashing or other purposes. Sinks generally have taps (faucets) that supply hot and cold water and may include a spray feature to be used for faster rinsing. They also include a drain to remove used water; this drain may itself include a strainer and/or shut-off device and an overflow-prevention device. Sinks may also have an integrated soap dispenser.

Sinks are made of many different materials. These include:
 

  •     Stainless steel
  •     Enamel over steel or cast iron
  •     Ceramic
  •     Marble
  •     Plastic
  •     Soapstone
  •     Concrete
  •     Terrazzo
  •     Wood
  •     Stone
  •     Copper
  •     Glass
  •     Granite
