Product FAQs

A self rimming basin, also known as a drop-in basin, is designed to sit on top of the countertop. This basin features a lip or rim that rests on the countertop surface, providing stability and covering the cut-out hole where the basin is installed. The main body of the basin drops into this hole, and the weight of the sink, along with caulk or clips, holds it in place. Self rimming basins are particularly popular for their ease of installation and the ability to fit into a wide range of counter materials.

Self rimming basins offer a range of benefits that make them a popular choice for various settings. Firstly, they're incredibly user-friendly when it comes to installation. The design allows for easy drop-in placement, eliminating the need for complex under-mounting. Secondly, their raised rim not only adds a touch of style but also functions as a barrier against water spillage, directing splashes back into the basin. This is especially beneficial in busy households or public restrooms where messes are more likely. Furthermore, they are versatile and can be installed on virtually any type of countertop material.

Proper maintenance and cleaning of a self rimming basin is essential to preserve its aesthetics and functionality. Because these basins have a lip that sits on the countertop, it's crucial to pay attention to the seam where the basin meets the counter to prevent mold or mildew buildup. Start by wiping down the basin daily using a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner to remove soap scum and water spots.
