Kohler cast iron enamel sinks--no lead--less durable?
I keep reading various references here to the fact that their glazing compound no longer includes lead as it used to. Does anyone know anything on this topic or when the change took place?
I have a nearly 20 year old, white Kohler sink that has been a workhorse and has held up extremely well other than some of those tiny scratches in the finish. If I buy one of today's Kohler sinks can I expect the same kind of wear? Or, is all this talk about the change in the formula going to mean I should expect to have a nice-looking and durable sink for a only a few years before the finish starts to significantly deteriorate. I would keep my current sink for my countertop re-do if it weren't for the fact I am apprehensive about putting in new, expensive stone countertops with a custom hole cut to match an older sink that is a totally unique cutout size and configuration with nothing at all the same size available in today's market so it couldn't be replaced if something happened to it.
