Imagine, you turn on the faucet and water gushes out like a waterfall! You will certainly not appreciate that. Here is where aerators come into picture. These devices evenly distribute the water flow and water then comes out in the form of droplets. These are an efficient way of saving water and also reduce splashing. The amount of water passing through them is controlled and measured using the unit, 'gallons per minute (GPM).' Such devices are also an efficient way of reducing your utility bills.
Now, let's move on to know some of the drawbacks of a soapstone sink. This stone, as compared to the other stones like granite, has a tendency to scratch easily. So, if you wash some heavy utensils in the sink, there is a possibility that its surface will get chipped over time. On the brighter side, all such nicks on the soapstone surface can be taken care of by sanding it with a sandpaper and then applying mineral oil on it. However, if the impact on the soapstone sink is huge, big cracks can develop on its surface and thus, you will have no other option, but to replace the sink all together.
There are certain features of soapstone, which make it great to be used as a sink. One of these features is that soapstone is highly heat-resistant. This means that you do not have to worry a bit, even if you keep hot utensils directly in the sink for cleaning. Soapstone can withstand heat to a large extent and thus, would not get damaged at all because of it! Another feature of soapstone is that it does not stain easily. So, any sort of chemicals, acids or ingredients in foods will not be able to spoil the look of a soapstone sink. Now, the best part about having a soapstone sink - soapstone is completely impenetrable. So, you can rest assured that no amount of water will be able to enter it and cause any kind of dampness.
Sometimes you may need to replace the O-ring to stop the leakage. As O-rings are available in a variety of sizes with minor variations, it is essential you buy the one which exactly matches yours. Pull the O-ring out and replace it with a new one. Coat it with plumber's grease before fixing it back.
