Unfortunate Flaw in New Sink
I purposely got this particular sink -- a bit more expensive than others -- because I wanted to avoid things like this: a very small chip in the new sink (or maybe it's a glazing issue -- I don't know). It's really just a tiny dot (see photo -- don't know if it will show) but it is aggravating and a little depressing that this sort of thing isn't caught in American Standard's quality control process -- assuming they have one. Or worse, it was seen, and they just let it pass anyway.
So now it's the first thing I see each time I use my new sink.
Since I'd already taken the plumbing apart and removed the old sink, with all its caulking cleaned-up (etc), I reluctantly decided to go ahead and live with the tiny dot in my new sink rather than have no sink for the duration (and time and trouble and expense) of an exchange. But it really is pretty discouraging.
