17" Undermount 16 Gauge Stainless Steel Single Bowl Kitchen Bar Sink with DrainAssure Waterway

The Dex™ Series uses a combination of durable materials and modern product design to help you keep your kitchen cleaner. The only sink of its kind, Dex is designed with a unique DrainAssure™ waterway to ensure that water drains quickly, even when the sink is full of dishes. The contemporary design features rounded corners for a fresh look that brings modern style to any kitchen. Engineered for superior durability, Dex sinks are made with high-performance TRU16-Gauge stainless steel to stand up to everyday needs. Wear-resistant Radiant Pearl finish with circular brushing masks scratches and scuffs that can occur over time for a long-lasting lustrous sheen. The ultra-smooth stain-resistant surface is easy to clean and maintain. Designed to maximize usable workspace, Dex sinks give you even more room for washing dishes and produce. Sweeping rounded corners and a gently sloped sink bottom allow for complete drainage and help prevent messy build-up for easy cleaning. Super-silencer NoiseDefend™ pads with an innovative foil layer cover all sides of the sink, reducing the tinny sound of running water while the sink is in use. Undermount installation creates a seamless transition from countertop to sink for easy cleaning, helping keep debris from getting stuck when you’re wiping down the counters. The sink comes with a VersiDrain™ drain assembly that traps food debris and conceals drain fittings. A cutout template and mounting hardware are included for hassle-free installation.

      Can I install a garbage disposal to this sink?

      Does the bottom have a slope?
          Yes, our sinks are engineered with 1/8" slope to easily help guide water towards the drain.

      Can I install this sink in a laminate countertop?
          Our undermount sinks are best suited for solid surfaces countertop materials like marble concrete, soapstone and granite. Not well suited for laminate or tile counters which have too many weak points along seams and grout lines to support the weight of the sink.

      How far back is the sink wall from the center of the drain?
          5 1/2"

      How does it compare to our Satin finish?
          Satin stainless steel has a vertical brushed finish that is typically shiny and makes it easier to see light scuffs and scratches from daily use. The finish on the Dex series sinks has a circular brushed finish that gives it a pearl-like radiant glow that minimizes visibility of scuffs and scratches that occur with normal use.

      What's the function of the covers and why would one use them?
          The DrainAssure Cover creates a continuous surface and hides the drain or garbage disposal when not in use. It's a cleaner look. The sink will continue to drain when the cover is in use. The VersiDrain with Flip Cover hides the debris in the basket and covers the drain. It's easy to use.

      Are sink grids available?
          A bottom grid can be used with the Dex sink series. Bottom grids for the Dex sinks are available and sold separately. It is recommended to use the bottom grid with the VersiDrain (ST-4) assembly, with or without the FlipCap for easy access to the drain. While the grid can be used with the DrainAssure Drain Cover (STC-1) it is not recommended. Bottom grid model numbers are listed below: BG1517 compatible with sink model numbers KD1US17B and KD1UD33B, BG2317 compatible with sink model number KD1US25B, BG3117 compatible with sink model number KD1US33B

      What is the purpose of the waterway channel?
          The Waterway helps to drain water from the sink when the sink is full of dishes or there are pots or other items in the sink.

      What are the additional feet for?
          The DrainAssure cover has 2 sets of feet that come in the box. A set of small and large size feet. The small feet are typically used if you are installing the standard strainer supplied with the sink. The feet help to keep the Cap securely in place. The large feet are typically used if the Cover will be placed over a garbage disposal. If any other drain assembly is used with the sink, please check which feet will work best with the drain assembly to keep the Cap securely in place.
