Utility Sinks & Mop Sinks
What is a Mop Sink?
A commercial mop sink or a commercial utility sink is excellent for your restaurant or food-service establishment's maintenance rooms that work with filling mop buckets and rinsing floors. A mop sink or an industrial utility sink is also a must for industrial applications where mop usage is frequent. Most commercial utility sinks also allows for easy bucket filling.
Stainless steel utility sinks are also the most common types of commercial utility sink because they are durable, heavy duty, and can be easily cleaned and disinfected. And although a stainless steel utility sink isn't the most glamorous part of a commercial kitchen or maintenance room, it will certainly come in handy when your kitchen staff needs to clean a busy cooking or food-preparation area. Your food-service staff will surely find a stainless steel mop sink a handy and convenient tool to make their cleaning chores easier.
Important Things to Consider Before Installing a Commercial Utility Sink
So what are the important things to consider before installing your commercial utility sink? First you must determine where you want to install your sink. Bear in mind that a floor mop sink takes up a lot of space. The location of your food-service establishment's waterline should also be taken into consideration. With that said, it is important to measure the area where you want to put your mop sink (making sure that you get the proper mop sink dimensions) before you go out and purchase one. Commercial utility sinks also come in different shapes and sizes, depending on the requirement of your commercial kitchen, so this actually gives you some flexibility when you make your choice.
It is also important to properly handle your mop sink before installation. While at it, you can start carefully inspecting the sink and checking your damages. You can do this by wiping your commercial utility sink with a wet cloth. When the sink dries out, even the smallest cracks will immediately be noticeable. It is also important to remember not to place the mop sink on its edge prior to installation, or else the corners of the sink will become chipped and damaged.
Another thing to make sure is that there is a large enough sub-hole on the floor to accommodate your commercial utility sink. The hole should actually coincide with the hole in your mop sink. The ideal average hole should be at least six inches in diameter, and the drain pipe should be at least 5/8 inches below the sub-floor surface.
