Default I'm in love !

Happened to come across my favorite fixture. City is demo'ing this 60's era school and I saved it from the clutches of destruction. Had to buy the trap standard but whatever.

look at this old concrete laundry sink, probably 100 years old when washing machines didn't exist!

AWESOME SINK man, I would love to get one for my basement.




I love saving old stuff. My kids appreciate the water fountain I saved from a school and installed out back.


When you set it either drill some holes in the base for bolts or at least set it in some silicone caulk or hydraulic cement.

Do your self a favor and make sure you have a c.o. on the back side of that so you can go at the trap from the rear. Those traps always fill up with the hardest of stuff. Then again, I guess you won't be dumping mop buckets with floor grit down there lolz

Definitely use teflon tape on the front c.o. plug if you ever hope to get it out easily. I have cut out so many of those. Maybe see if ams can sell you one or two spares so you have them for when the old one invariably welds itself in.

nope. not for me. the last time that i saw a trap like that with a cast iron sink above was a blood sink in a funeral home. the sink was a couple feet wider. i worked in 3 funeral homes in 3 days. my apprentice freaked. i was laughing. still dont want it in my house.

If I remember correctly we have that sink in the back utility room of the firehall where I volunteer. Someone said the faucet handles had not worked in nearly 20 years so I fixed them by simply loosing them up and replacing the seals.
