  • Single-bowl or double-bowl 33" kitchen sink?

    What is being installed or upgraded to?
    Double-bowl?
    Single big bowl?
    Triple-bowl?
    1/4-width + 3/4-width bowl?
    Smart Divide(tm)?

    (I like 33-inch single bowl.
    Used a 1/4 + 3/4 bowl stainlessteel 33-inch sink and it was great having thextra room for pans and refrigerator shelves, etc.)

    Thank you.

    I'd take an educated guess - but I'm unqualified.

    newer kitchens are leaning towards the large single compartment farm sinks.

    double bowl sinks are a thing of the past due to dishwashers.

        I agree with Rick, Also the old cast Iron tubs with the pigs feet are going back In. I can remember taking one out when I was a apprentice...... It slipped going down the stairs.....and right through the wall.....Back to the Kitchen sinks....They look real nice with some color, like red, And a nice tall faucet.

          here is a genuine farmers sink, Pre 1930's. and I am guessing the sink is out of the "old house" on the property, not the one it is in now, so I am guessing that it is nearly 1900 vintage,

            Did somebody say a nice tall, red faucet?

                  Is that a fake well pump and really a hot and cold water faucet?

                    I'll hazard a guess. It sure looks like the real deal to me. (A real handpump, not a faucet).

                      It is a real pump, the well is basically shot, and pressurized water is currently out of the question,

                      But it will pump both hot and cold, there is a three way valve under the counter that is switched by a knob behind the pump, and will pull from the hot water tank or from the cold water reservoir, (the hot water tank is feed by the cold water reservoir),

                      they use about 15 to 20 gallons a day of water average, (that includes the clothes washing and the baths), there is a pump in the bathroom that feeds into a wash basin and with a extension spout they can fill the bath tub, they do not have a pump at the washing machine that is a ringer washer, but even on wash day they only use about maximum 20 gallons in the washing machine, (during last summer the washer was out side, I do not know if they will move it back out next summer or not),

                      they still use a out house for the other business, not enough water for a flush toilet,

                        I would find a way of collecting water or gray water with which to flush a 1.6 gpf toilet.

                            Could you install a toilet in the house, bury a 3-inch line to empty into the outhouse pit?
