Narrow Utility Sinks - Is there such a thing?
 
I need a Utility Sink, but there's no way I can fit one in my laundry room. As a point of reference (in case I'm calling it by a different name), it looks like this:

Do they make these things narrower?
I don't need it for the sink feature, but rather as a catch for the overflow of my washer.
If they do exist, PLEASE send me a link as to where I can get one!

Why is the washer overflowing? Is the line plugged up?

mr_trotta 11-21-2006 06:15 PM

Hey Ron,

It's me again. Remember this thread? Same problem. I had a plumber come take a look at it and he said the 1 1/2" pipe under my kitchen floor (in the foundation) most likely needed to be replaced. The cheap solution would be to get a utility sink to allow the excess to drain into. It's what quite a few people in this area do with the type of house we have (54 yrs. old).

Do narrow utility sinks exist?

Ron The Plumber 11-21-2006 06:18 PM

Not sure they do exist, you will have to google it.

mr_trotta 11-21-2006 06:24 PM

Been there. Done that. No luck.

Hoping that someone has one in their home, or has seen one, or hopefully someone knows where to get one. Google didn't find anything.

What the largest dimension you can go with?

mr_trotta 11-21-2006 06:50 PM

Ideally 16" wide or deep. Some sinks that I've seen are only 14" tall, but it would be nice to find one that is deeper than that, and then is more rectangular to make up the loss of depth.

I'm going to be moving around the washer and dryer in a small laundry room so that I can accommodate this utility sink. The sink is absolutely necessary.

Ron The Plumber 11-21-2006 06:57 PM

!8" is too wide?

mr_trotta 11-21-2006 07:56 PM

Ron, I could work with pretty much any dimension. I've only seen 22" squares, which doesn't help me. Unfortunately, describing dimensions of sinks doesn't help either. Finding sinks of other dimensions would. Do you know of any?

Ron The Plumber 11-21-2006 08:00 PM

The only thing I do is google key words, like 18" Utility Sink, you just have the tweak the search here and there.

Wish I had a magic site for you but I will only seek so long.

I had to special order thru Lowe's, Home Depot had a picture of it on their shelf but told me it was no longer available & wouldn't try to order one for me. I took a copy of this web page to Lowe's, they went to the web site & once they saw it was available they ordered it for me. No problem.
