Advantages of using Home Depot utility sinks include sturdy construction, versatility, long-lasting appearance and its environmental friendliness. The products are often rated highly by Home Depot consumers: as of 2015, the Elkay Signature 20-inch Three-Hole Stainless Steel Utility Sink has a 4.5 out of 5.0 rating on the website.
Sinks such as the Elkay have sturdy construction, which brings a number of advantages. Part of that construction is the undercoating of the utility sink, which helps to prevent condensation, deaden sound and reduce heat. The stainless steel also provides the consumer with a sturdy surface as well as an ample working space within its high-capacity, 10-inch bowl. The sink is very versatile as well--the three pre-drilled holes allow the sink to use a variety of different faucet styles. The stainless steel design aids the undercoating in helping to reduce loss of heat.
Utility sinks such as the Elkay also have a longer-lasting appearance due to a surface that resists rust and a satin finish that increases the product's lifespan. Finally, the utility sinks are good for the environment: the Elkay is completely recyclable and is constructed using 80 percent recycled materials. As with other Home Depot products, the company provides both an energy guide and installation guide for the utility sinks, which is an advantage for those who need extra assistance.
