Can fireclay farmhouse sinks be used with a garbage disposal?
Yes they sure can! Plus, they all have a standard 3 1/2" drain, so any standard garbage disposal will work just fine.
Can the fireclay farm sinks be installed under mount?
Yes, they can be installed under mount, top mount or flush mount. In either scenario, the sink must be supported from underneath. The best countertop type for farm sinks is solid surface such as granite.
Which sink material requires the least maintenance?
If you are looking for a low maintenance sink, we would recommend Fireclay sinks. Fireclay is resistant to staining and is also easy to clean. Copper is stunning to look at and Bamboo, eco-friendly, however, they both need a lot more TLC.
