Kohler sink repair

tfitz1006August 20, 2014

We've got a crack in our Memoirs 24" bathroom sink. I can't seem to find anyone who can repair it...I call Kohler supply places and they say a china sink cannot be repaired. I know there is a kit. Mixed reviews on Amazon. Anyone tried it? I'm posting two pics. First shows entire crack, about 8". Second shows one gouge. Other than that it is fairly superficial. Thank you!

It is possible to buy a small bottle of porcelain paint to hide chips in concrete surfaces, but there is no repair kit that is going to fix that crack. It's a significant crack and you can see a displacement in the second photo which indicates the crack is all the way through the sink. Unfortunately, you should start thinking about a replacement rather than a repair.

Do you mind if I ask how old your sink is? I'm about to purchase a china vanity top with integrated sink, and this was one thing I was worried about - cracks.

As for repairing the crack, I'd replace it, if it were me. I had a crack in a toilet tank once. I tried everything to repair it, even to the point where I didn't care what it looked like. The closest I came to a repair was waterproof epoxy. But no matter what I did, water would slowly seep through. Toilet tanks are different from sinks, I know, in that they hold weighted water, but I would think that any china that water falls on would have that issue.
