Water flow/aerator with these faucets? - Hi- I'm installing this sink in my kids' bathroom. My architect tells me that the faucets (Kohler Cannock) don't have a low-flow aerator kind of thing that one would usually find in a bathroom sink. Is the water flow really strong? Anyone know if it's possible to install an aerator so the kids are not wasting gallons of water per minute?

You can order it through any plumbing supply shop who stocks Kohler. You can also order it over the internet, though it would be a heavy shipment.

Install pricing? Please help. - My plumber has quoted $7000 to purchase this sink and it's components, and install it in new construction currently framed. Do you have any visibility as to whether this is a fair price? I love this sink and have found it (alone) on line for )$1600. Is there really $5400 of plumbing fixture costs and install? I live in Raleigh Durham area.

Kendallfelix, I love your Brockway! Did the bottom black paint look nice enough that you did not have to repaint it at all? Is it a flat black, or a more shiny finish? I do not plan on painting the belly of mine, and hope to have a bit of it peeking out of the front of the cabinet it will be sitting on. Another question - is there room for the water supply lines between the back of the sink and the wall, or do the lines have to go into the wall?

It astounds me when I read about people paying list price for things like the Brockway sink. I went to a plumbing supplier nearby to see if they can get the Swanstone ADA shower floor with a trench drain that I have seen online. (It is brand new and is not in stores yet.) I am zeroing in on my final plans for the bathroom remodel we need to do. I have a contractor who does all of our work in our home, so I asked the person waiting on me to give me contractor prices on the Swan shower floor, the swanstone walls, the Brockway sink, and the drain components. He said that as long as my contractor does the ordering, he gets the standard 30% contractor's discount off of list price. I recently talked to my contractor about this, and he said that this was fine, when it comes close to starting the project, I can give him the list and he will order the items and I can give him the money to pay for them and get the discount. I then told him that in other parts of the country, contractors not only pocket any discount they are given, but they add on their own fees on top. He laughed.

Home Depot online shows that they will ship the 3 ft Brockway to your home for free for $1161.64, the Cannock faucets are $190 each. The plumbing house I was at suggested a bar sink drain to me when I asked about getting a drain other than the one that Kohler sells. I wanted one that came with a plug. Kohler's is the strainer type and costs $36 at HD. I could get one for $10 that would plug shut. Then there is the cost of the p-trap, the water supply lines that would be in the walls if you mount the sink directly on the wall, and possibly shut-off valves, if you have a basement under the sink and can access the area to shut the water off if ever needed. I do not know if HD actually will be able to order the Brockway, but they have shown it in their online catalog for at least the year I have been drooling over it for my bathroom reno!

I wonder if anyone ever orders those legs they sell for the Brockway. I don't think I have ever seen a picture of them in use in the real world. Here is my current plan. If I am ever wheelchair bound long-term, we would get rid of the cabinet and hang the Brockway on the wall to create more floor space, so all of the bracing will be done before the tile goes on the wall. If the plumbing has to go in the wall, too, I guess we had better have that ready, too.

Great, Katie, thanks for reporting back on your phone call. It was only recently that we started putting bathroom countertops higher, more like kitchen ones. Traditionally, they sit at 29, 30, or 31 inches. That is why water runs into your hairline if you bend over and wash your face down by the faucet. It is also why I can only wash one hand at a time in the morning when I wake up and my rib cage is still frozen from muscle spasms from lying on my back at night. I can't reach the faucet with both hands when I am too frozen to bend! The Brockway will bring those faucets right up where I can reach them in the morning. We had some good financial news the other day, so maybe we will be able to do our bathroom by the end of summer. Good luck with yours, and I will "follow" you if you want to continue to talk about our projects or if you will share photos.

Haha, I see Nancyinmich! I think I'll be raising mine from 32"-34" . Just looks too squatty when at that traditional height for some reason. Thank you and best wishes on your renovations! Katie

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz user Allison Bloch had her Brockway sink's basin bottom painted a bold and beautiful blue. "I saw the idea for this sink in a PB Kids catalog," she says. "Originally I wanted to put it in my kids Jack-and-Jill bathroom, which had white subway tile, randomly interspersed with blue subway tiles. I tried to match the sink color as closely as I could to the tiles." "The bottom of the sink was originally rough and black and I had no intentions of leaving it that way," she explains. After spending a lot of time on internet forums about painting cast-iron fixtures, she realized a DIY project that involved a lot of chemicals was not a good choice for a pregnant woman. "It was so much easier to take it to a local auto body shop (Branning's in Princeton, NJ). Plus, the guys there were happy to have something different to do that day." The paint job cost $300.Due to an unexpected issue, the sink could not be plumbed in the Jack-and-Jill bath it had been painted to match. "The sink ended up in the playroom bathroom, which is fine," she says. "It still gets a lot of use, and every mom who sees it loves it; I love the idea of a trough sink being shared by multiple kids at the same time."
