A sink, sometimes called a sinker, washbowl, hand basin, washbasin, or simply basin, is a bowl-shaped plumbing device used for handwashing, dishwashing, and other tasks. Sinks have taps (faucets) that provide hot and cold water, as well as a spray function for quick rinsing. They also include a drain to collect spent water, which may have a strainer and/or shut-off device, as well as an overflow-prevention system. Sinks may also include a built-in soap dispenser. Many sinks are placed next to or inside a counter, especially in kitchens.

When a sink becomes clogged, most people will use a chemical drain cleaner or a plunger to unclog it, but most professional plumbers will use a drain auger (also known as a “plumber’s snake”).

The washstand was a late-eighteenth-century bathroom sink produced in the United States. Following English custom, the washstands were tiny tables on which a pitcher and a deep bowl were set. The big bowl would sometimes lay in a hole in the table, leading to the creation of dry sinks. The dry sink evolved from around 1820 to 1900 by adding a wooden cabinet with a trough placed on top, coated with zinc or lead. This is where the water bowls or buckets were stored. Splashboards, as well as shelves and drawers, were occasionally added to the rear wall, with the more complex designs generally being put in the kitchen.

Stainless steel is widely used in kitchens and commercial settings because it offers an excellent balance of price, use, durability, and cleaning ease. The majority of stainless steel sinks are created by pulling a stainless steel sheet over a die. Welding is used to creating some incredibly deep sinks. Stainless steel sinks are resistant to damage from hot and cold substances, as well as impacts. One downside of stainless steel sinks is that, since they are composed of thin metal, they are louder than most other sink materials, despite the fact that superior sinks have a thick layer of vibration-damping material on the underside.

For kitchen and bathroom sinks, enamel over cast iron is a common choice. These sinks are heavy and long-lasting, and they come in a variety of forms and colors. They are resistant to hot and cold things, just like stainless steel, but they may be damaged by sharp impacts, and if the glass surface is broken, the underlying cast iron can often corrode, spalling off more of the glass. Cleaning too aggressively may dull the surface, allowing additional debris to accumulate. Enamel over steel has a similar appearance but is considerably less durable and cost-effective.
