Vitreous China vs. Ceramic vs. Porcelain

The construction material of your bathroom sink will dictate how hardy your new sink is against the heavy use that comes with every day life. Porcelain is the toughest of all the materials, and can withstand and hold heat very well. Ceramic is less expensive and is made by heating clay in a kiln, however it can contain impurities that can lead to cracking and breakages. Vitreous china is a coating made from enamel that is applied to bathroom fittings after they are made which can make the ceramic or porcelain even harder.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Q 1. What are bathroom sinks made of?

Ans: Ceramic, porcelain and tempered glass are the materials that bathroom sinks are most commonly made from. However, you will also find sinks made from acrylic, metals, quartz and stone.

 

Q 2. Bathroom sink smells / Kitchen sink smells like sewage

Ans: This is caused by sewer smells leaking up through your drain. To avoid this, make sure you have a proper P-trap installed under your sink, as it stays filled with water in order to provide a seal against these smells.

 

Q 3. How to clean ceramic sink?

Ans: Using harsh chemicals on ceramic can destroy your sink. Instead, use a soft sponge with baking soda and lemon juice in order to remove stains and discoloration.

 

Q 4. How to clean a stained sink

Ans: If you can’t use bleach, lemon juice or vinegar make great natural agents for removing stains in your sink.

 

Q 5. How to remove stains from porcelain sink

Ans: Coat your sink with bleach and paper towels overnight in order to break down stains. In the morning, make sure you rinse it well.

 

Q 6. How to reconnect sink stopper

Ans: Insert the stopper into the drain. Slide the clevis over the pivot rid then push the rod into the drain. Replace the nut you removed enough to hold it in place.

 

Q 7. How to fix a leaky bathroom sink?

Q 8. How to install a bathroom sink drain pipe?

Ans: Hand-tighten an adapter onto the drain stub, install slip nuts onto the drain arm and then tighten the connection. Fit the P-trap by tightening the nuts. Connect the water supply tubes, ensuring that you route them to the shut off valves. Turn on the water and be sure to check for leaks.

 

Q 9. How to paint a porcelain sink?

Ans: Be sure to clean the sink before painting, and sand with a medium grit sandpaper in the areas that are to be painted. Apply the new porcelain in thin, even coats. Be sure to apply a second and third coating. You may have to leave your sink for a couple of days before using.

 

Q 10. Gurgling sink when toilet flushed

Ans: The pipes that your bathroom uses service both your bathroom sink and toilet. If your sink gargles when you flush the toilet, this is because of air moving through the pipes. There may be a blockage in the main vent stack that requires maintenance. Remove any leaves or debris from the vent to remedy this problem.
