For over 100 years, Elkay has been the trusted name in sinks. They have built a legacy that is known for producing high quality, stainless steel products that are made to last a lifetime. We’re proud to partner with Elkay at SUPPLY.com, and we strive to provide the best products they offer.
The Perfect Drain and InSinkErator Garbage Disposal
One of Elkay’s most popular innovations is the Perfect Drain. The Perfect Drain eliminates the gap between the sink and the drain to ensure cleanliness. It works in tandem with InSinkErator garbage disposal systems, which are some of the most efficient and well-known disposals in the world. These products are specifically made with simple installation in mind.
For the trade pro installing the Perfect Drain and InSinkErator with an Elkay kitchen sink, it’ll be a quick and simple job, which means more free time or more time to work on other jobs and make some extra cash. It’s satisfying to just drop in the sink and lock the rest easily into place, and you know the homeowner will be happy with the result. Below, real trade professionals tell us what they thought about the installation.
The Professional Review
We wanted to prove just how great the Elkay sink package is, so we asked our customers to try it out. They installed the Elkay Gourmet Drop In Steel Kitchen Sink along with the Perfect Drain and InSinkErator.
The InSinkErator model used is the Badger5 with cord. It’s easy to install, has a voltage of 120, and a 1/2 horsepower continuous feed.
The Gourmet sink has an extra-deep, high-capacity bowl. The top mount installation makes for an easy drop-in method, and mounting clips are placed under the sink to ensure less time installing underneath the counter.
This sink is the perfect companion to the Perfect Drain, and our SUPPLY.com PROs at McGhee & McGhee LLC were impressed by the ease of installation and quality of the products.
“The customers are madly in love with the seamless drain, the depth of the sink, and the sound dampening bottom. They are equally excited about the InSinkErator. They love how quiet it is and that, even being installed under a deep sink, there is still plenty of space underneath it in the cabinet.” – Michael McGhee, Remodeling Contractor
We also asked Jared Jenkins at McKenney’s Inc. what he thought about the Elkay InSinkErator and Perfect Drain. Here’s what he had to say:
“This product provided a very easy installation. I was able to install the sink with a few household tools including a hammer and chain locks for the plumbing! I would guess the time was cut almost in half of a typical sink install.
My favorite feature of this sink is how much wider the basins are compared to the previous sinks we have owned. A large pan fits flat at the bottom! The perfect drain is also a wonderful feature and makes a huge difference in clean up! It is perfect after meals with our 3 small children!”
This package is a win-win for everyone, from the customer who will be using the sink to the plumber who will be installing it.
