My wife insisted we buy this sink for use in our garage MUD room. It is a NUMERÄR model.

The size was good, wide and deep but installation was a nightmare. First there are no pre-drilled holes for the faucet. While a no holes option gives the user more latitude in faucet placement. Most of us do not have the tools to cut holes in stainless steel.

They do sell a CHEAP metal hole cutter BUT the hole was too small for most faucets sold in the USA. The hole cutter is about 1 1/8" dia. Most faucet risers , especially if you have amixing valve, single faucet type is 1 1/4" diameter. When I discovered the mistake, it was too late to re-drill the hole.

A hand file was required to enlarge the hole and a lot of elbow grease. The installation instructions were totally inadequate and misleading. Wooden support for the faucet was also not available without a lot of work. Save yourself some headaches and trouble.

If you must buy this sink, get it installed by the store. Better yet, find another brand.

Sounds more like installer inexperience than anything wrong with the sink itself.
