    Re: Outdoor sink

    For the few times that it is needed for me, it was easier to access it via a bucket from either the house kitchen or laundry rather than extend and insulate a very rarely used convenient commodity. Cold water, fine, hot water, not really at this point of time!

        Re: Outdoor sink

        I had a point-of-use hot water heater in the workshop burst and do a lot of damage before the leak was discovered. Don't neglect to make provision for drainage if it's an indoor instalation.

        I agree, It's nice to have hot water in seconds. In retrospect I think I had the temperature set too high. For greatest longevity, set the temperature for about what you want for hand washing.

          The minimum recommended temperature for dishwashing ( per my Health Dept overseer) is 105 Degrees F. I use a on-demand water heater set for this temp and when I wash up I just run hot water. It makes it less complicated than working the mix valves with dirty hands etc.

            I would use an Air Admittance Valve for the vent. You can purchase these at Home Centers. Behind the sinks trap, install a tee looking upwards. Cut a piece of pipe long enough to go as high as possible with the AAV on top of it. AAV's are normally used on island sinks where a vent pipe going upwards is not possible.

              Browsing though the photos I see a lot of sinks incorporated into the outdoor areas. I was wondering, of those that have sinks in their setup how much do you really use it? My build site is about 10-12 feet from the door that leads to the kitchen and I'm thinking I really don't need a sink outside since its that close. Snip....
              X2. We have a doorway arm's length from the new oven site which is 11 feet from a sink, small refer and half bath. Out the other door and you are in a screened porch. Turn away from the original door and you have a shaded picnic area. Just a practical resignation caused by lack of excess funds

              You are the only one you have to please. You can always find a 'nicer' or more expensive way to do things. Practicality is king for us.

              I try to learn from my mistakes, and from yours when you give me a heads up.

                I really wish I had a small sink next to my oven. Tending the fire, and working with dough are dirty, incompatible activities. In addition, those aluminum handles of your oven tools leave black crud all over your hands (How hard would those be to anodize, FB?) My sink isn't ten feet from my oven, and it would be better if it were.

                  My sink is three steps from my oven and 2 steps would be even better. A sink is imperative close to the oven. Unless you have an assistant or two helping with the dough prep and toppings, you will be washing your hands every time you step away from the oven. IMHO there is nothing less appetizing than a big black fingerprint on my nice clean white dough. If you don't want to spend the $$ now just stub-in the plumbing and finish it later. If you don't......You'll be sorry.

                    Re: Outdoor sink

                    I agree whole heartedly, a sink is as indespensible as the oven itself (unless you have a bucket of water close handy and keep on changing it).
                    I picked up another sink from a local recycle yard with a flick mixer that has a removable spout for $40 intended for another job that I am doing (putting in an outdoor kitchen in a sewing/quilting premises) and am currently considering changing the sinks over, but the drainer is on the wrong side.
                    However, I don't need 2 sinks.
                    Look around, find a bargain and install it no matter what else you do immediately after finishing your oven and installing your prep area/kitchen..... indespensible!!!!!

                    Cheers.

                      I agree, the sink is very useful. You end up with flour and dough caked all over your hands and it is nice not to have to leave the area to clean up.

                        Being an owner of Invicta Agency I have seen many designer kitchen set into outside area and they were looking good as well but I don't think that they will be as hygiene and clean as the indoor. If we get outdoor sink we may get the clogging issues again and again. If were getting a sink fixed for my home that would be in side the home. https://www.gilliesgroup.com.au/
