Farmington 16" Cast Iron Drop In Bathroom Sink with 3 Holes Drilled and Overflow
Product was delivered surprisingly quickly and in perfect condition.
I purchased this sink (and one of another color) to replace Kohler sinks of the same size that were 25(?) years old. The original one was rusted so badly underneath the mounting surface that the rust was actually forcing chips and chunks of porcelain off of the casting around the outer edge, lifting the sink off the Corian vanity and rust-staining the surface. (It had gotten so bad that I could no longer hide this defect with caulk.) I decided to replace it thinking perhaps it was never installed properly and a new one wouldn't have the same problem.
The new ones have no porcelain wrapping underneath the mounting surface or inside the drain either. Their website says to use silicone caulk when seating the new one. Fine ...but you would think Kohler might have learned to protect the cast iron in the drain at least so that the rust wouldn't eventually migrate up around the drain stopper (as yet ANOTHER one of their sinks is doing in our home and we have yet to order those).
Went online and read a helpful post that recommended painting the underside before installing. EXCELLENT idea!! So I did that and also painted inside the drain. Fingers crossed...
Another issue: Years ago when the original Kohler products in this bathroom were installed (tub/shower, toilet, and sink), the colors were much darker than is available now. We chose innocent blush in the hope of matching the original pinkish-mauve sink we were replacing. Not even close. So keep in mind - this product has only the slightest pinkish hue to it. (We were actually fine with that.)
Otherwise, the quality of the VISIBLE finish is excellent and I am optimistic that going BEYOND following the manufacturer's installation instructions will yield good results for many years.

Excellent order feedback
Your rep was so courteous and helpful in finding one of the last out of production bathroom sinks to color match our out of production stool. It's a real pleasure to work with a company with employees that take the customer's requests as a challenge to be solved rather than dismissed. Thank you for your assistance in redoing our bathroom.

This sink is a like for like replacement for a 10 year old sink which was cracked and rusting around the drain. Happily, it is the same type of sink. I like the style, and it is a perfect fit.I was also happy with the quick delivery, and price.
